I am attempting a software and hardware inventory over our network, Novell sitting on top of AD (that's about all I know about the network setup). I am using a Windows application with C# and WMI services (.NET 2.0). I can list the services of the local machine with no problems, but I get the following error when trying to authenticate on a remote coomputer with the user as the local Administrator and the matching password. I have tried placing the name of the computer before the username (machinename\Administrator), but get the same error.
Could not connect to server! Cannot open SCardSvr service on computer 'computername'
