Hi,

Here's the setup of my prpblem:

I'm working an a machine that is not in the domain, running Windows
XP.

I'm trying to access a machine in the domain, running Windows Vista
Business.

When I run

get-wmiobject win32_service -credential domain\user -computer vistapc

the following error is returned:

Get-WmiObject : The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from
HRESULT: 0x800706BA)
At line:1 char:14
+ get-wmiobject <<<< win32_service -credential domain\user -computer
vistapc

When I run this againt a Windows 2000 server in the same domain, I do
get results.

I already checked if the WMI service is running on VistaPC, and it is.

What am I missing here?

Cheers,

Rick

Out of the box on my Vista Biz install, the Windows firewall will block
remote WMI calls.

Duh. That's it.

Note to self: 1. Boot machine 2. Get coffee 3. Start work.
In-that-order!

:-)

Tnx!

Cheers, Rick
