We do not want to use the default administrator account for wmi access to a webserver that is NOT on our domain. The admin account does work for reading wmi values. I have created and alternate account and performed the tasks suggested on this knowledge base to allow it access to read WMI values but have had little luck. I have granted it access to the dcom,administrator, and perf mon groups. I have granted access to wmi / CIMV2 in the wmi control properties. Windows firewall is disabled. Even given rights in the com security in the component services. Is there a step by step guide or checklist to achieve this?
Both the server i am trying to monitor and the server hosting prtg are windows server 2008.
