I'm deploying the System Center Operations Manager client to servers in my organisation.  I have already installed a number of clients successfully, including domain controllers.  However, on one particular domain controller I am getting the following error:

-----------------------
The MOM Server could not execute WMI Query "Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem" on computer <computername>.

Operation: Agent Install

Install account: <domain admin>

Error Code: 80070005

Error Description: Access is denied
-----------------------

I am using a domain admin account to do the installation, and this has worked without problem on all the other servers I've installed.  Anyone come across this problem before?

Managed to fix this.  I noticed that autoenrollment was also having problems on this server, and it turned out that I had a damaged COM+ catalog.  Repairing the catalog using the instructions in Microsoft KB article 315296 resolved the problem.
