Hello everyone,

I need to add/configure a user account on a WMI namespace (cimv2). For the life of me I can't figure out the Micro$oft WMIC utility. This command-line util is meant to be able to configure the namespace security, but I can't get it to work.

Does anybody out there know how to edit WMI namespace security (without using the WMI Control MMC method?)

Cheers!

Just to let you know that I've been able to get half-way there by using VBScript and the GetSD/SetSD methods. Using this method, I'm only able to overwrite the DACL on a WMI namespace rather than editing it...

Hello,

I've created my own command-line utility (written in VB.NET) that will edit ACL's. Its pretty cool.

Private Message (PM) me if you want it. It'll cost ya! [:D]
