Windows 7 SP 1 Remote Administration blocked
Posted on 2011-03-24
After deploying Windows 7 SP1, my VBScripts fail when I try to gather data and remotely administer our domain client machines. The scripts worked fine before SP1, but now I get error indicating the machine can't be reached.
I checked the firewall settings on the Windows 7 SP1 clients, and Remote Desktop and Remote Administration is "Blocked" and these services are specifically "Allowed" by our GPO settings.
- How can I reverse this - I tried uninstalling SP1 but the settings remained?
- How can I bypass this or modify scripts so that I can do simple remote WMI queries, etc?
