When I try to run the wizard from a couple of different servers I get the following error when adding a source server.
"Could not connect to server SERVERNAME using WMI. Error message: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
Any clue how to resolve this? I have checked and confirmed that WMI is running on all servers. Additionaly, I have confirmed that the Windows firewall is not on.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
I migrated a WIN2000 server to a WIN2003 R2 storage server with FSMT. After the copy phase which contained 3 shares only one is visible with explorer the others are not. I can however see the share and subfolders with a Dir command in a command prompt.
Is this normal and if I execute the Final phase wil they become visible?
Thanks in advance for any comment
Any update on the WMI errors I commented about last month? This is still unresolved.
