I was wondering if anyone else has seen this issue. I have Orion NPM 8.5.1 with the APM module. Someone has a test Windows 2003 server running in VMWare workstation on a Windows Vista box. We can monitor the VMed server processes just fine with SNMP, but not with WMI.
When I hold my mouse over the Info box for the process, it says "Server unavailable using WMI". When I look at the Secuirty logs on the server, it shows a bunch of failed logins, but never mentions a user name. The credentials being used are a part of the server's admins group. When I pull up wbemtest from my Orion server and try to test a connection to the VMed server using the same credentials, it works fine. I have matched up DCOM settings with other Windows 2003 servers.
Does anyone know if there is just an inherent issue with using WMI process monitors on a server running in the VMWare Workstation platform? It's not a big deal, since this is just a test server and we don't run any production servers in this type of environment. But it's got me curious.
