WBEM - Windows Server


I need set WBEM comunication between HP SIM 6.2 and non-HP Windows Server node. My problem is with security. I need set rights fon non-admin account on target system. Where can I set rights on the target Windows Server system?

Thank you


Re: WBEM - Windows Server

The following steps should be followed to make a non-root/Administrator user get WBEM data from a Windows box,(These steps would usually work :-))
1. Create a new user account under the "Standard Users" group or "Users" group. Make sure this user account is "password protected"
2. Give DCOM permissions to this new user, the steps for this are as follows
a) Start->Run->dcomcnfg , an MMC opens called "Component Services" under "Console Root" expand "Component Services" to show "Computers" expand "Computers" to get "My Computer", right click "My Computer"-> Properties, "My Computer Properties" opens up, click on the tab "COM Security" .
b) Under "Access Permissions" click on "Edit Limits" give the newly created user Local and Remote access
c) Under "Launch and Activation Permissions" click on "Edit Limits" give the newly created user "Local Launch", "Remote Launch", "Local Activation" and "Remote Activation" permissions.
3. Give the user access to namespaces , so that he can access namespaces locally/remotely
a) Start->Run->Compmgmt.msc . An MMC opens up called "Computer Management" , expand "Services and Applications" , right click "WMI Control" -> properties, "WMI Control Properties" opens up, click on the tab "Security"
b) Select the namespace that you want the user to be able to access, if its all namespaces then select "root" and click on the "Security" button, here give your user the permissions you want him/her to have, now click on "Advanced" button and give the specifier that you want these permissions for this namespaceto be inherited to all other namespaces . (since "root" is the main parent namespace, doing these steps on "root" gives permissions to all other namespaces below it also)
