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. You can use a tool included in the Windows OS, WBEMTest, to determine if a target server responding appropriately to remote WMI requests from the SolarWinds Platform server.

  3. When the Windows Management Instrumentation Tester opens, click Connect.
  4. In the Namespace field, enter the hostname or primary IP address of the target server in the following format:


  5. In the Credentials section, enter a User and Password, and then use the following format to specify the domain for the user account in the Authority field:

    NTLMDOMAIN: NameOfDomain

  6. Click Connect, then click Enum Classes.
  7. Select the Recursive radio button without entering a superclass name, and then click OK.
  8. If the list does not appear, remote WMI is not functioning correctly. Click Close, and then click Exit.
