Why is the WMI Provider not working in Elements EPP for Computers or EPP for Servers on a Windows device?
WMI Provider is by default disabled. You can enable the WMI Provider from the Endpoint Protection device profile:
- Log in to the Elements Endpoint Protection portal
- Go to Profiles page
- Select the profile
- Go to the General settings page
- Scroll down to the Integrations section and enable WMI Provider
- Click Save and Publish
Correct Command for WMI Integration:
$ Get-WmiObject -Namespace root/fsecure -Class AntiVirus | Invoke-WmiMethod -Name ScanComputer
Note: WMI must be enabled in the Elements device profile, and PowerShell should be run with admin rights.
In case WMI does not work after WMI provider has been enabled, re-installing the product might help.
