Deployment Server causes issues with WMI depository. The problem in general seems to be that WMI on the deployment servers is broken. If I uninstall the Deployment server then our WMI works. Results below:
Run the WMI properties through computer management, namely "Failed to connect to <local computer> because "<Null>: Unspecified error."" There's a Windows native utility called WBEMTEST.EXE. When I log on as a domain administrator and run it on these servers, I get an error such as this:
Description: Initialization failure
Additionally, if I run even the simplest WMI script, logged on locally as a domain admin on these servers, it fails.
Deployment Server 6.5.X
Altiris Package Server WMI Provider
At one point, Monitor Solution was installed, which provides the Altiris Package Server WMI Provider.
- Back up the server.
- Uninstall the Package Server WMI Provider using utility provided. Reboot.
- Remove the repository and re-register all the WMI DLLs. Reboot.
- Verify that the WMI is fixed.
