Remote server: Windows 2016

I had some issues using Get-WmiObject to work on a remote server in Powershell. I kept getting: “The RPC server is unavailable.” I verified that the “Windows Management Instrumentation” service was running.

It turns out it was the firewall blocking the request.

I used the following to open up ports for the program to access the server information:

C:>netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=”Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)” new enable=yes
