I'm having a problem getting Windows Management Intrumentation to allow me access to it's information. I am a network admin using a Windows 2003 domain. This problem is evident on all our workstations in the office so I believe it is a policy/permissions issue somewhere. Everytime I try to access WMI with various utilities I get an access denied error. I am an administrator on not only every workstation, but the domain controller as well. I've tried local admin accounts as well as domain admin accounts and still get access denied errors. I have tried a bunch of suggestions from other resources with no success.
I have tried loging in locally to the workstation as an admin and run the WMIC command line utility and try to do a simple lookup and get "access denied". I've looked at registry settings, a number of policy settings, and made sure the relevent services are running. Any ideas or troubleshooting steps that would help me track down the issue would be much appreciated.Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
