HP SIM WBEM discovers XP as server

Hi guys,

Since upgrading to HP SIM 6.0, our weekly discovery has started identifying numerous Windows XP Pro installations as Servers, and adding them to the database. This is true for both desktops and virtual machines. The

WBEM is enabled and global WBEM credentials have been defined (this was not a problem in 5.3)

Discovery filters:
-Data Center
-IO Expansion
-KVM Switch
-Management Processor
-Power Supply
-Storage Device
-Tape Library
-UPS Management Module

Limit discovery to "Any system that matches the above filter" is checked

Anyone have any idea as to how to not discover those clients as servers, or how to tweak the WBEM discovery rules to only include actual server platforms?

Thanks in advance!
