I did follow the below article to make sure that the local user account I'm using to monitor can remotely access WMI: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/203-how-can-i-monitor-wmi-sensors-if-the-target-machine-is-not-part-of-a-domain
Then, using the WMI tester tool (https://www.paessler.com/tools/wmitester), I can succesfully query some basic information:
- SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem
- SELECT * FROM Win32_Process
- SELECT * FROM Win32_PerfRawData_Tcpip_NetworkInterface
However, as soon as I try to get information regarding services, the query fails: Query: SELECT * FROM Win32_Service Error message: 80041003: The current user does not have permission to perform the action. Workaround: Put the user into the Administrators group (which I want to avoid)
I assume that this is a permission issue on the machine, but I can't figure out which one.
