Hi All,

I'm having problem in querying WMI between two different AD sites that is not trusting each other

What I have tried:

Telnet between Windows Server 2008 using IP address and port 135 is all working good vice-versa
Start | run "WBEMTEST" between sites always end up in Error 0x800706BA with the description of "The RPC server is unavailable"

I have specified \\IPADDRESS\root\cimv2 in the Namespace textbox and DOMAIN\Administrator credentials both returns the same error message on both windows server.

Any idea of how to make the WMI query works between two different AD sites would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

hello.
to my understanding is that if those different ad sites are not in trust wmi will not work.
I guess you probably used wmi tests inside those sites and worked as it was supposed to.
my advice would be to setup (if it is possible) a trusting relationship between those two sites.
i've been using a cross site wmi reporting and its working fine (although i have a 2003 domain and my domain have trust).
i hope that helped.
please feed back with your actions for future reference.
