Hello,

I am having a problem running get-wmiobject against a couple of large web servers.  Basically when I run:

$sites = Get-WMIObject -NameSpace "root\WebAdministration" -Class Site -Authentication PacketPrivacy -ComputerName COMPUTERNAME

I receive the error:

Get-WmiObject : Quota violation
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (:) [Get-WmiObject], ManagementException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : GetWMIManagementException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetWmiObjectCommand

I have attempted to limit what is returned by:

$sites = Get-WMIObject -NameSpace "root\WebAdministration" -Class Site -Authentication PacketPrivacy -ComputerName COMPUTERNAME -Property Name, Bindings, Id, LogFile

And a couple of other select and filter options with the same result.  This is happening on multiple systems hosting 4000+ sites in IIS each.

I have seen the issue with WMI in Server 2k3, but these systems are all Server 2k8 r2 with the latest patches installed.

Thank you for any information.
