WMI Not Working
Posted on 2006-11-13
I have some rather extensive WMI scripting in a VB6 application we use for inventorying our computers. Everything has worked great until last week when we started rolling some new machines out. They are Dell computers with Windows XP. The previous machines were also Dell computers with a mix and match of Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Now whenever I try to connect to one of these machines through WMI (remote) I get the error, "Access is Denied" with an error number of -2147024891.
The connection string I am using is:
Set objWMIService = objLocator.ConnectServer(sIP, "root/cimv2", sUID, sPwd)
As I indicated, this has worked since this past February when I added WMI to the process (we can get complete inventory of resources, etc on a computer and even have a batch job that will pull all information from all computers on the network.
I have checked on a couple of the machines and the WMI service is started and running. Any suggestions/ideas????
