SYMPTOMS

You may be unable to use the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider to remotely administer Windows 2000 Network Load Balancing (NLB). When you attempt to do so, you receive the following error message:
WMI Provider Failure

CAUSE

The NLB driver uses port 0x09C8 without binding the port to a socket. Therefore, the client that you are attempting to remotely control could be bound to the same port, and the outgoing data may be fed back to the client computer itself. When this occurs, some of the data is invalid as a remote-control response and causes the inability to start the WMI provider.
