Microsoft removed the namespace "root\MicrosoftIISv2" starting at IIS 7.0 and replaced it with the namespace "root\WebAdministration."

On Windows with IIS 7.0 and above, the probe "WMI: Get IIS Information" may result in:

* the warning: "Unable to connect to path: root\MicrosoftIISv2. Error: Invalid namespace"
* no cmdb_ci_web_site records are created

This affects Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2012.

An enhancement request has been created to add support to the new namespace. A workaround is provided in this article.

Steps to Reproduce

No steps to reproduce are available.


Install the IIS 6 WMI Compatibility server roles for the root\MicrosoftIISv2 namespace to be present:
