Please check this documentation:

"To establish a connection to a WMI remote host, you need to use either a standard user or a user with administrator privileges"

If you install a OneAgent onto the exchange host and run the extension from there, you don't need to enter any credentials. The extension is automatically executing as local system, which has access to the WMI queries in question.

If you run it from an ActiveGate you need to set up a user which has access to remotely access WMI. There are instructions here under "Remote enable permission on the host":


Thas what i need, thank you.
