WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Only a credential that has administrator rights on the target server has the necessary permissions to access the target server's WMI services. Make sure that the username and password you are using belongs to an administrator on the target server.

If the administrator credential is a domain member, be sure to specify both the user name and the domain in the standard Microsoft syntax. For example: DOMAIN\Administrator.
