WMI to remote server
Posted on 2007-10-17
I have 2 2003 servers, one local and is a member of a domain, the other is remote (in another country) and is only on a workgroup. I have some monitoring software which can use WMI to retrieve the windows log events. I can't get this to work so I have been trying to diagnose the problem. I have disabled firewalls at both ends to test, both machines have a public static ip address. I can run wbemtest on the remote machine ok and wmidiag, but when I run wbemtest on the loacl machine and try to connect to the remote machine it says "0x800706b9 Not enough resources are available to complete this operation" Strange when the resources are vast on both machines. I know it is sucessfully authenticating as administrator because if I put the wrong password in it gives the error "Access Denied" and I can also see success logon audits in the event viewer. There do not seem to be any other error messages and verbose WMI logging doesn't seem to show anything other than "CForwardFactory::CreateInstance" although "GetUserDefaultLCID failed, restorting to system verion" is showing in wbemcore.log regularly, but not at the time I try to connect.
Please can anyone advise where the problem may be and how I could investigate further. Thanks.
