If you recognize an issue with WMI connectivity to a remote system, use the Check and Manage Computer Connectivity task to help resolve the issue. This launches the same dialog you can use to provision the WMI providers to remote systems. The difference is you execute this task from the Enterprise > Managed Computers view.

Note: For ConfigMgr instructions see Appendix A: "System Center Configuration Manager 2012 and 2012 R2 Procedures".

To complete the Check and Manage Computer Connectivity task:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Enterprise, and then select Managed Computers.
  2. If you want to specify a single computer, select the computer you want to fix in the center pane.
  3. In the Actions pane (right), click Check and Manage Computer Connectivity.
  4. On the Computer Access Management window, select the appropriate options as described in the following sections.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Complete the Task Options Wizard to specify the target systems and schedule and/or execute the task. For additional information, see "The Task Options Wizard".
