Hi, I figured I should create a separate post about this because I wasn't sure what topic to put it under. I used the Reset WMI Repository action recently and I noticed that it failed. It also failed when I tried to run winmgmt /resetrepository locally from a command prompt. The cause of the failure was dependent services of winmgmt such as IP Helper and Security Center. If those services are stopped prior to running the reset command, it doesn't fail. I was wondering if you could add a step that checks for dependent services and gives the option to stop them before proceeding with the repository reset. Thanks!
