I'm installing a TFS2010 server and I'm getting a WMI error in the analysis services check (ACCESS_DENIED), since the analysis services is in a different server I ask the sysadmin guy (I'm a developer) to add the installer account to the local administrators temporally, he did but now I'm getting this:
[ Reporting ] TF255437: An error occurred while querying the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) interface on the following computer: [SERVER]. The following error message was received: .
As you can see the error is a joke, since now I'm an administrator I checked the machine and the WMI Service is running and WMI Compatibility for IIS 6 is enabled.
One thing I noticed though is that the license for the server expired, (I guess the sysadmin forgot to activate the server), this could be the reason WMI is failing?, if so, there is any documentation about it?, I don't want to tell the sysadmin, "hey I just logged on in your server and I think you should activate it".
