The WMI Providers only run on demand when Patch Manager tasks require their capabilities. They run as a process on the remote system when needed; they do not run as a service. By default, the SolarWinds WMI Providers run under their own process using the Local System account. Their operations impersonate the security context of the caller when executed. That is, they use appropriate credential stored in the Patch Manager database as assigned in the console user's credential ring.

For additional information about credentials and credential rings, see "Managing Patch Manager Users and Security".
