If multiple instances of a Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) application (for example Wbemtest.exe) are configured to repeatedly issue WMI queries against the same Host Integration Server 2000 (HIS) server, after a while, one or more of the instances of Wbemtest stops responding.
When this problem occurs, all of the applications that use the HIS WMI provider will fail to return status information and will not function as expected.
