Difficulties of obtaining informations from some computers RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have installed MAP, we have "run" the first option ("identity computers that ...") but at the end of the inventory, some WMI Status are "Failed - Connection time out" and others are "Failed - RPC Server Unavailable", one is "Failed - Access Denied" and 3 are "Failed - Other Reasons".

    We have also seen that "Computers running Windows XP Home edition cannot be inventoried and assessed because remote WMI connections are not allowed to computers running this version of Windows XP".

    So we have done a test and apparently the problem comes from Win XP Firewall but we can't disable it on each computer...

    1) Can somebody explain me what  could be the reasons of each "failed" of WMI status?

    2) Has somebody a solution to obtain results (with GPO or anything else) without disabling manually WinXP Firewalls on each computer ?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

  • In fact, the answer of the 2nd question is in the "Getting Started Guide" (p16-17-18)...

  • Hello Jean-Michel

    You can shared this information, because I make inventory of several XP, but I receive the same messages.
