This document shows how to run a remote test on a windows host to check if the WMI is configured correctly so the scan is able to access the WMI information during the scan.
When would we need to use this?
Meaning, what would show in the scan results indicating there was a WMI permissions problem.
Do we post a QID or result in a QID.
Recently I have seen cases where all the WMI CID's are not pulling any data when running the Policy report. This is a big indicator (I'm talking Policy). Recently we added "Error" as a new status to the Policy reports which is an indication that the check could not run.
Having the customer walk through this doc is a great way to ensure that WMI is working remotely, before moveing forward with other troubleshooting.
Thanks for posting this. I do have controls that require WMI failing, so I will try this with our customer. Any idea how to determine what the "namespace" i.e., if it does not auto-populate?
