In order to access WMI on a remote machine, you'll need to alter the WMI security on the remote computer and restart the WMI service. This can all be accomplished through the Computer Management Console in the control panel shown in Figure 1. Right clicking on the WMI Control of the Services and Application section allows you to access the WMI Properties.
Computer Management Console in the System Administration Tools of the Control Panel will bring up the WMI Control Properties dialog shown in Figure 2. This dialog will allow you to change the security on the particular WMI node you are trying to access. In this case we want to change the security on the CIMV2 node to enable remoting.
WMI Control Properties Dialog (Security Tab)
Clicking the security button opens a dialog that allows us to change security on the computer to enable remoting as shown in figure 3. We will give remote access to everyone in this case.
Allow Everyone Remote Access to WMI
Now we simply restart the WMI service in the computer management console as shown in figure 4.
