WMI query outside or Root\cimv2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Anyone know if MDT is limited to making queries only within the CIMv2 namespace?

    I am trying to query root\Intel_ME:

    WMI Namespace: root\Intel_ME

    Select * FROM ME_System WHERE FWVERSION < x

    But MDT throws the error:

    Error in opending WMI namespace root\Intel_ME. Invalid Namespace (Error 0x(8004100e)

  • Yikes.  It looks like my problem was syntax.  As soon as I enclosed the version number I'm querying for in double quotes it works fine.  Select * FROM ME_System WHERE FWVERSION < "x"

    Thanks for your help guys.

  • To my knowledge, MDT can make queries to additional namespaces.  Concerning Intel_ME, I believe you must have a vPro system and AMT installed.  If either of these are missing, this will not work.

  • I've verified that the namespace exists and can query the attribute in question from WMI Explorer.  But for some reason I can't get MDT to read it.

  • Are you making the query in WinPE or in a full OS?

    Many questions such as where do I find logs and what logs are interesting are found in: MDT TechNet Forum - FAQ & Getting Started Guide Please take the time to read it.
