Unable to install WBEM Provider for Windows

Dear Guys,

I just installed HPE SIM 7.5.0 on my server running on Windows Server 2008 R2. I've managed to discover some of my server via auto discovery. The others was block due to ICMP was disabled in firewall level. I've configured my SNMP and define the community string. I was able to manage my devices and ILO. I have few doubts on the WBEM provider. 

1. Do i need WBEM provider install on the management server?

2. When i try to run advise and repair i've received this error message. When i try to perform repair, it says failed to suscribe to WBEM.

Hello,

You don't need WBEM if the SNMP agent and service work just fine. You would get your events from the server by SNMP traps if configured. The WBEM agent is more secure and can give more data collection information. But if you don't need the extra info or security you should be fine.
Kind regards,

Andrew
