GFI Languard error: "Error connecting to WMI server: Access is denied." when patch scanning a server.

Why do i get these messages during scans? I verified that the WMI service is started automatically for each one of the servers. What's odd is that after scanning has completed, it appears to have scanned successfully. My question is will it allow me to re mediate them without any issues?

Watch Question

Make sure that the user GFI is running as is able to authenticate with WMI.  Just because it is running on the server does not mean that the user GFI is running as can authenticate with it.
