If the following errors look like what you are experiencing, you ‘might’ be able to fix it by following the instructions in this post:
wmic (from Linux – if installed)
wmic -Uuser%pass //172.16.2.2 "SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem" [wmi/wmic.c:196:main()] ERROR: Login to remote object. NTSTATUS: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED - Access denied
wmic (from Windows)
C:\Documents and Settings\mon>wmic wmic:root\cli>/user: mon Enter the password :*********** wmic:root\cli>/node: 10.1.1.196 wmic:root\cli>csproduct get /value Node - 10.1.1.196 ERROR: Code = 0x80070005 Description = Access is denied. Facility = Win32
You should now be able to use WMI remotely against this host.
Let me know if this doesn’t work for you, or if you have any better suggestions.
Please note that this was tested only on Windows XP Professional: Service Pack 3
