Permission denied 'GetObject' - ActiveX component can't create object

11 New Member

I am trying to write a script to stop services automatically in a Windows server 2003 R2. i am having a text file with the server name and services name and use the concept of array for stopping all the services.,

Sample script as follows,

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & splitArray(0) & "\root\cimv2") 'Computer name
  2. Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service where DisplayName = '" & splitArray(1) & "'") 'Service name
  3. For Each objItem in colItems
But when i execute the script from the 32-bit server i get the error,
Microsoft VBScript Runtime error (at the line For loop in the script): ActiveX component can't create the object.

When i tried to execute the same script from 64-bit server , i get the error,

Error:Permissio n Denied 'GetObject'
Source:Microsof t VBScript Runtime error

Can someone please help me out

What is the environment of the server that is running the script and what is the environment of the remote server that the script is running against?

The script is working fine in one Windows Server 2003 R2., but not working in another. Is it due to the fact that the server has failed to initialize all required WMI classes (as seen in WMI Control properties ) which is creating this issue !!

That didn't answer my question but it sounds like you found the issue. Please share how you resolved it for anyone else that may run into this issue.

Finally, enough information to offer you a possible solution!

You need to read thru the following as there are just too many variables that without "hands-on" your servers I cannot even begin to list all them nor tell you how to make sure that they are all set correctly to authenticate your script.
I highly advise that you follow thru on all of the hyperlinks provided within the page, especially the connection to remote computers and administration rights: WMI Tasks: Computer Harware

Basically, YOU do NOT have sufficient Credentials and Authentication to the server!!!

It doesn't matter that you think you do... as far as the OS is concerned YOU do NOT have the correct access rights to run the script on that server via remote - period.
>>EDIT>> I suspect that the issue may be within line1 of the posted code: }!\\" & splitArray(0) & "\root\cimv 2") in that something is not resolving correctly <<EDIT<<

I would like to thank Rabbit and zmbd for quick replies and great support in resolving this issue.

This issue is due to the fact that in the server it has failed to initialize all required WMI classes., and had reported this issue with network team and once this issue is resolved, the script was working fine. Thanks guys for all your help :)
