Enable Remote Procedure Call (RPC)

Remote WMI connections use RPC as a communications interface. If the RPC service is disabled on the target server, remote WMI connections cannot be established.

These steps show how to enable the RPC service:

1. Log on to the target host as an administrator.

2. Click Start > Run, then type services.msc, and then press [Enter].

3. Right-click Remote Procedure Call (RPC), and then click Start on the shortcut menu.
