I'm trying to use WMI Explorer to query the root\MSCluster namespace on various hosts to obtain cluster resource group and resource object data. I can access the namespace with no issue on Win2K3 cluster nodes but am getting an access denied error attempting to connect to Win2K8 and Win2K8R2 nodes. I can access the root\cimv2 namespace with no issue, just the MSCluster namespace even though I am a local Admin. Is there a feature setting, local security policy or server role I have to be a member of to access the namespace? Thank you!
Not familiar with WMI Explorer, but does it let you specify the ImpersonationLevel?
Try the folling VBScript (not tested) on the local machine. Then edit the strComputer = "." line to be the server name and execute remotely:
