I'm working on a solution, where I want to rejoin a computer remotely to the domain if the domain trust is lost or for any other reason. In order to achieve this, I need to let WMI through the Firewall and set the needed security permissions for DCOM.
The firewall part works great, but I'm having issues with connecting to WMI using the local administrator account. I am getting an "Access Denied" error, and checking the DCOM security settings I can see that the administrator group has the correct permissions for remote administration.
Here's the current situation:
Seems like for some reason the local administrator group does not work for setting the DCOM security permissions. Anyone seens this before and maybe have a possible solution? ;)
