RE: SCCM Client/WMI Fix
The problem with that is that we have 24x7 users as well as a large number of very sensitive users who will complain to management and cause headaches if we reboot their machines. Believe me I've been working on a solution for the whole reboot thing for over a year, and I still don't have a proper solution yet.
I'll try that but it brings up a similar problem where the majority of the machines I have to repair are logged in nonstop so I don't get a chance to really log in and deal with the issue, instead I just use PSExec to repair WMI without directly impacting the user. Also, I'd like something automated where I don't have to deal with it at all.
Yup I know about the reliability update... However, if you look closely MS claims they ported back the changes from Vista, but the update only includes a single DLL file so that's highly doubtful, especially when you consider how different the WMI is in Vista. I have already deployed this to all of our SP2 machines (SP3 includes the update and has been installed on the majority of our systems).
Yeah I know I could do that, but it doesn't solve the critical problem where I don't want to be the one identifying the broken ones, I'd want the script/application to do that for me.
Has anyone seen WMI issues with Vista/Win7? I have yet to see a problem on those OS's (though I have seen SMS break a couple times, but I didn't have to repair the WMI).
