No Such Interface Supported Error

A No such interface supported error may be thrown by the local Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Service if you attempt to access functions from a host that blocks WMI requests or where there is a firewall between hosts. You can use the Windows Management Instrumentation Tester (WBEMTEST) to check if WMI access is being restricted on a remote host.

To verify the error:

1. From the Windows Start menu, open Run.

2. Enter 'wbemtest' and click OK to open the Windows Management Instrumentation Tester.

3. Click Connect.

4. In the Namespace field, enter \\<HOSTNAME>\root\cimv2, where HOSTNAME is the name of the remote server throwing the error. If either device is on a different domain or within a workgroup, specify administrator credentials for the domain or remote computer.

5. Click Connect. If WMI access is restricted, the No such interface supported error should appear.
