Configuring remote machines for Detection by SamStn

on February 17, 2010
SamStn can be used to connect to remote machines and change their administrative and security settings. Before it can detect the machines and make any changes the remote client machines must be configured to accept remote connections from SamStn.
Follow these steps to configure the systems:
Assume that :
pc #1 = Machine that will control pc#2
pc #2 = Machine that will be controlled by pc#1
* Both computers will be using the original default “Administrator” account or any other account with Administrator privileges.

1. Login to (pc#1) using the original Administrator account.

2. Go to Administrative Tools->Services. Make sure that the services referenced below are started and set to startup Automatically.

COM+ Event System
Remote Access Auto Connection Manager
Remote Access Connection Manager
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator
Remote Registry
Windows Management Instrumentation
Windows Management Instrumentation Driver Extensions
WMI Performance Adapter

Close the Services window.

3. Go to Start->Run and paste in wmimgmt.msc and click OK.

Right click on WMI Control (local) and select Properties.
Click the Security tab and then click on Root.
Click the Security button.
Make sure the Administrator account is added and that the Allow column has checkmarks in all the options.
Click Ok twice.
