The Computer Access Management window includes additional options to configure remote systems that allow WMI connections. The following table lists the available settings.
|Enable DCOM if disabled||Enables Distributed COM (DCOM) on the remote system. This is a requirement for Patch Manager to use WMI to connect to remote systems.|
|Configure DCOM permissions to include 'Administrators' group if needed||Modifies DCOM permissions to allow users from the Administrators group in Windows. Patch Manager requires local Administrator permissions on remote systems to run the WMI Providers.|
|Enable the Remote Administration firewall rule (Windows Firewall/Advanced Firewall only)||Enables the Remote Administration firewall ruleset in Windows Firewall. If you are using a third party firewall solution, administer the necessary rules in your firewall through other means.|
|Enable Windows Installer service if disabled||Re-enables the Windows Installer service on the remote system. Patch Manager requires this service to install the WMI Providers.|
|Enable MSI Logging||Enables MSI logging on the remote system. This option is selected by default, but you can clear it if you do not want MSI logging turned on.|
