MAP Wmi = FailedDueToAccessDenied RRS feed

  • Question

  • When tring to run map against our networks one machine fails inventory and performance metrics. 

    Map is instaled on a 64bit windows 7 machine the machine that fails is a server2008 R2 machine with sqlserver 2008 r2 installed

    there are about 40 other machines that MAP works just fine using the same credentials.

    i had ran map a couple of times before on this machine other than windows updates i am unaware of anything else changing.

    in the error log i  get Wmi = FailedDueToAccessDenied Registry = FailedDueToAccessDenied

    admin share is accessable

    remote registry is accessable

    I run MAP with a Domain Admin account which is obvouisly a member of the local admin group on the pc but just to verify that its wasnt actually a permissions problem i added domain admins to the WMI Security.

    i have used winmgmt to verify wmi repository.

    i can use perfmon remotely using the same account and i can use NSclient++ on the machine to do WMI queries and it works just fine.

    new antivirus software was installed about 2 month ago but has ran at least once successfully after that.  as a test i truned off AV completly made not difference.

    If anyone has anyidea where to start that would be great so far i have no idea where to even begin since it has worked before and wmi and remore registry still work..  and it currently still works on other machines.

  • I would recommend that you start by verifying that all the necessary configurations have been made to the machine and possibly the firewall.  You can find these listed in Appendix A of the Getting Started Guide.

    You can also use WBEMTEST as shown in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xtxo8re2_9w) to test your WMI connectivity and visit the TechNet library for a helpful article called “WMI Isn’t Working!” (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff406382.aspx) for more tips regarding troubleshooting WMI connectivity.
