thanks Jamie! I have looked at some of this. Though I have a hunch that there is something wrong with my domain wide adm template. Since the machines start showing wmi problems only when they are joined to a domain and I the domain wide adm template had been corrupted and repaired. I am thinking of creating a new GPO with a default ADM template an then adding the settings from my current GPO adm template to see if this helps. do all think this might work? ________________________________ From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Nelson, Jamie R Sent: Thursday, January 10, 2008 6:08 PM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Re: WMI Not Working on all domain systems.

Hello everyone, Happy New year! I posted about this issue a while back and still have not found a resolution. I do have some more info about the issue: WMI is not working on any of my domain computers When I go to the advanced tab on my network connection properties I get the following message: "Windows cannot display the properties of this connection. The Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) information might be corrupted..." I am not able to get any system information on any of my domain systems except for my servers. This issue occurs when ever I add a system to my domain. I think this problem emerged when I repaired a corrupted Admin template on my default domain GPO. I believe somehow a GPO is causing this issue on my systems but am not able to determine what needs to be corrected. has anyone had a similar issue and found a resolution to this? ________________________________ This e-mail may contain identifiable health information that is subject to protection under state and federal law.
