Looks like some .vbs script is added\configured on the server

>> want to search for any .vbs files (especially on the system folder like c:\windows)

I did a search for .vbs but didn't see any about WMI.

My guess is that we can use the .vbs script to use your exchange-server;port-number...to send an email with the subject "WMI@server"

You could also check\investigate on the "Task scheduler"? on those affected servers

>> check the scheduler on the exchange-server too...just in case any remote WMI or VBS queries....

I couldn't find a .vbs but what you are saying makes sense. I wasn't worried about it unless you experts had seen it before and it sounds like it would be nothing even if we found it. Thanks for the help.
