SYMPTOMS

You have an application that uses the System.Management namespace to connect to a remote computer. You run the application. Then, you enter a credential of the remote computer to evaluate the ConnectionOption parameters. When you check the security event log in the remote computer, you find that a "Failure Audit" event is logged for the local credential. Additionally, a "Success Audit" event is logged for the remote credential.

Note When you use Wbemtest tool to connect to the remote computer, there is no audit log for the local credential. Only the "Success Audit" event for the remote credential exists.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of an issue in Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and in the Microsoft .NET Framework schema. WMI returns an IWbemServices pointer to the .NET Framework. The .NET layer then tries to determine whether this object implements the IManagedObject interface. The proxy has not set a security blanket. Then, the proxy calls the local account instead of the ConnectionOption parameters.
