I looked at an issue the other day where it looked like WMI wasn’t working.  In order to test it, I used the following simple VBScript:

On error resume next

serverDnsName = "exch1.ev.local"

for each objOS in GetObject("winmgmts:\" + serverDNSName + "rootcimv2").InstancesOf ("Win32_OperatingSystem")

            wscript.echo "Name = " & objOS.Caption & " Version = " & objOS.Version


if err <> 0 then

            wscript.echo err.number

            wscript.echo err.Description


end if

The output will look something like this:

C:temp>cscript wmi.vbs

It might be useful to keep handy, in case you want or need to test it too.
