HP SIM 7.2 Discovery fails with major errors

I am trying to add windows 2008r2 to HP SIM 7.2, but the discovery completes with major errors. And the node is added as unamanged.  Below is the excerpt of the error:


********* Significant issues and overall target discovery/identification
Major: The system cannot be identified properly for HP SIM to manage;
unable to get one or more of the following: model, serial number or
unique identifier (UUID). For management processors, verify the
system is running the latest firmware. For Linux based operating
systems, you must have dmidecode installed, enable the
PermitRootLogin and PasswordAuthentication in sshd, and use root
credential. For HP-UX, verify the sign-in credential. For
Windows, check if WMIMapper is configured correctly on the CMS and
verify the sign-in credential.
Normal: Identification status is only available for servers, workstations,
or desktops, where monitoring is enabled.



So far I have tried following steps, update the firmware, ran the latest psp, installed WBEM, tried with local accounts, ensured all the required fw ports are allowed and local windows firewall is disabled.



Not sure what else to check, thanks in advance for the help ...
