WMI Ports(?)

Hi,

I'm new to Opsview and I've been attempting to monitor one of my 2012 servers without using an Agent.

One thing baffles me though. To my understanding WMI uses port 135 on the first connection then randomizes a number between 1000 and 64k+.

Is there a way to fix-up the port or should I just install an Agent?

Thanks!

Hello!

This may help - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/c2ca4979-165a-4bb9-903c-e23f6a35dbf1/wmi-ports.

I havent done it myself as I'm not a Windows expert but it seems like it should be possible to "fix" the ephemeral ports.

Best,

Sam
