Test remote WMI connectivity
Testing the remote WMI connectivity of the target server helps isolate faults that could prevent the target server from receiving or responding to remote WMI requests. The testing program is a Microsoft program named WBEMTest that comes already installed on Microsoft Windows operating systems. You can test WMI remotely on the target server.
Complete the following procedure to check whether the target server is responding appropriately to remote WMI requests that originate from the SolarWinds SAM server.
- Log on to the SolarWinds SAM server with an administrator account, then click Start > Run, enter wbemtest.exe and then click OK.
- Click Connect on the Windows Management Instrumentation Tester window.
