I'm looking for a way to check whether WMI is running properly on a Windows Server 2008 machine. I'd prefer to do this by running a command. Is there any?


or just do somethig like this at an elevated prompt

wmic os

  • Thanks, that's what I was looking for. When WMI is down, it gives an error message and I can catch that pattern. – Hakan Oct 4 '11 at 15:22

WMIDiag is a good place to start.
