Q7240028: I cannot find a particular WMI class on my target machine, although it should be there. Is there a way to rebuild the WMI repository?

Yes you can. Use the winmgmt command-line tool to rebuild the WMI repository on the target Windows platform:

  • Open an Elevated Command Prompt
  • Stop the WMI Service by typing: net stop winmgmt
  • Rebuild the WMI Repository by typing: winmgmt /salvagerepository
  • Restart the WMI Service by typing: net start winmgmt
  • Check for errors by typing: winmgmt /verifyrepository
