If you encounter an issue (such as a Failed status) with WMI connectivity to a remote system, use the Check and Manage Computer Connectivity action to resolve the issue. 

The Check and Manage Computer Connectivity action launches the same dialog box used to provision the WMI Providers to remote systems. You can execute this action from the Enterprise > Managed Computers view.  

See System Center Configuration Manager 2012 and 2012 R2 procedures for SCCM instructions

To complete the Check and Manager Computer Connectivity task:

  1. Log in to the Patch Manager Administrator Console as an administrator. 
  2. In the navigation pane, expand Enterprise and select Managed Computers.


  3. In the center pane, select the targeted computer. 
  4. In the Actions pane, click Check and Manage Computer Connectivity.
  5. In the Computer Access Management window, select the appropriate options, and click OK.
  6. Complete the Task Options Wizard to specify the target systems and schedule and/or execute the task.

    See Task Options Wizard for details.
