Hey all,

I have a winServer 2008 machine. I have created a new local user.
In order to make him an admin all I have to do is to add it to the "administrators" group. right?

now, I wrote a c# code that supposed to connect that local user and execute some exe file remotely.

static void Main(string[] args)



            string remoteMachine = "HV-BENDA";              

            string sBatFile = string.Empty;




                 string _cmd = "D:\\LocalUserManagerDLL3.5\\RunDll\\bin\\Debug\\RunDll.exe";

                if (_cmd.Trim() == string.Empty)


                    Console.WriteLine("No command entered using default command for test :" + _cmd);



                ConnectionOptions connOptions = new ConnectionOptions();


                connOptions.Username = "HV-BENDA\test3";

                connOptions.Password = "1234";




                connOptions.Impersonation = ImpersonationLevel.Impersonate;

                connOptions.EnablePrivileges = true;

                ManagementScope manScope = new ManagementScope(String.Format(@"\\{0}\ROOT\CIMV2", remoteMachine), connOptions);


                ObjectGetOptions objectGetOptions = new ObjectGetOptions();

                ManagementPath managementPath = new ManagementPath("Win32_Process");

                ManagementClass processClass = new ManagementClass(manScope, managementPath, objectGetOptions);

                ManagementBaseObject inParams = processClass.GetMethodParameters("Create");

                inParams["CommandLine"] = sBatFile;

                ManagementBaseObject outParams = processClass.InvokeMethod("Create", inParams, null);

                Console.WriteLine("Creation of the process returned: " + outParams["returnValue"]);

                Console.WriteLine("Process ID: " + outParams["processId"]);



            catch (Exception ex)


                Console.WriteLine("Error " + ex.Message);



but the following exception is thrown from the manScope.Connect(); line

"The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA)"

when I omit

connOptions.Username = "HV-BENDA\test3";
connOptions.Password = "1234";

everything works just fine.This, as I understand, connects with my current user (which is domain admin and not just local admin). So I have tried to use these two lines with my current user credentials- but the same exception was thrown.

does anyone know how to resolve it?
