After you have WMI connectivity configured for your environment, use the Inventory verify access only Managed Computer Inventory option to verify WMI connectivity with your remote systems.

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

To verify WMI connectivity with your remote systems:

  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 Inventory.
  4. On the Inventory Options window, select Inventory verify access only.
  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".
