Step 1: Check the WMI Service

The quickest way to test the WMI service is to start the WMI Control
snap-in:

a. Start -> Run -> Open: wmimgmt.msc
b. Right Click on "WMI Control (Local)"
c. Select Properties

If the WMI service is configured properly, the control snap-in will connect
to WMI and display the properties dialog. Under the "General" tab you
should see information about the operating system and the version of WMI

Step 2: Check Security

While still in the WMI Control MMC, do the following:

a. Click on the Security tab.
b. Expand Root and highlight Root/MicrosoftExchangeV2. Click the Security
tab. A sample of "good" permissions is:

Administrators - full inherited
Everyone - Inherited
Execute method,Provider Write,Enable account
Local Service - inherited
Execute method,Provider write, Enable account
Network Service - inherited
Execute method,Provider write,Enable account

Security tab.Again - a sample of "good" permissions:

Administrators - full inherited
Everyone - Inherited

The above permissions are same as Windows 2000 as in Windows 2003 - EXCEPT on Windows 2000 you do not have permissions such as Local Service and Network Service.

Step 3:

To check the WMI Connectivity from your Exchange Server to another server use the following method.

a. Start -> Run -> Open: wmimgmt.msc
b. Right Click on "WMI Control (Local)"
c. Select Connect to another computer

Type in FQDN of the second Exchange Server.
Once done, please perform Step 2.

Step 4: Check Classes and Namespaces Using WBEMTEST.EXE

a. Click Start -> Run and run wbemtest.exe
b. In the WbemtestTester application click the Connect button.
c. In the Namespace field type in: root\cimv2\applications\exchange. Then
click the Connect button.
d. Click the Enum Classes... button. Do not enter a superclass name. Click
the Recursive option, and then click OK.

Note there should be 59 objects (Exchange 2003)
