Overview

WMI runs as part of a shared service host with ports assigned through DCOM by default. Starting with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, you can set up the WMI service to run as the only process in a separate host and specify a fixed port.

Environment

  • NPM 11.5.3
  • Windows Server 2008 and later

Steps

1. In the command prompt, type winmgmt -standalonehost.
2. Stop the WMI service by typing the command net stop "Windows Management Instrumentation" or use the short name of net stop winmgmt.
3. Restart the WMI service in a new service host by typing net start "Windows Management Instrumentation" or net start winmgmt.
4. Establish a new port number for the WMI service by typing netsh firewall add portopening TCP 24158 WMIFixedPort.
