Client troubleshooting and WMI

SNAGHTML361d74Hi guys, in this post we continue our theme with ‘what we heard you asking us at TechEd USA 2010’.

We have seen a trend in many of you looking for information about troubleshooting WMI when you are trying to solve Client issues.  A friend of ours Brian Huneycutt has written a great article about sorting through WMI issues on the client.  Here is a small excerpt from his post……..

The Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) subsystem has evolved over time to become a key dependency for many applications, Configuration Manager being one of them.   We've been intertwined since the .698 build of WMI shipped with Systems Management Server 2.0 (there was even a WBEM Inventory component in SMS 1.2).  

Given this history and relationship it's important to know what to do when something goes wrong. 

You can find Brian’s entire post here.  It’s well worth a browse, or bookmark……….
