Click the Advanced tab.
Under Default namespace for scripting, click Change.
In the Browser for Namespace dialog box, select a different default namespace as a target for your scripts.
- Set the default targeted namespace to one you

within a script, the default is used.
- If the computer you manage runs
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, you can define whether WMI scripts
can be run from within an Active Server Page (ASP). If you enable
this option, your ASP connects to Windows Management services

which might compromise security.

remote computer or a local computer. To access a remote computer,
right-click WMI Control, click Connect to another
computer, click Another computer, and then type the name
of the computer to which you want to connect. If you are using WMI
Control from the Computer Management console, right-click the

account must be a member of the Administrators group on the remote
computer. For more information, see Connecting to WMI on a Remote Computer.
