WEIRD: error 80070005: Access is denied



Hey, I know this error was discussed here a number of times, but what i'm facing is really weird: Windows server 2008 R2 - I use the WMI test tool, type all server information and the administrator credentials - all good, BUT when i enter a new username, which is in Administrators group: "error 80070005: Access is denied".

I've entered "everyone" in the root WMI control properties, and tested on a few servers - the same!!

Any ideas?!? Thanks!
