WMI Client Connections

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

A WMI client is any process that connects to the WMI service.


Event ID Source Message



Access to the %1 namespace was denied because the namespace is marked with RequiresEncryption but the script or application attempted to connect to this namespace with an authentication level below Pkt_Privacy. Change the authentication level to Pkt_Privacy and run the script or application again.



WMI Service could not deliver results asynchronously for %1 namespace. The namespace is marked with RequiresEncryption but WinMgmt could not establish a secure connection back to the client computer. Ensure there is a trust relationship between the client and server computers so that the client recognizes the server computer account.
