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.
