Provided user account cannot query WMI

Follow the steps below if you receive the error message:

'Provided user account cannot query WMI. Check the provided account has “Read Security” level of access to WMI on the target machine. SQL Monitor is unable to monitor without access to WMI.'

Check the required permissions: Permissions required for monitoring servers

The monitoring account should be administrator, although can be setup with a non-admin account, follow the instructions here: 'Monitoring host Windows machines without admin permissions' from the link above.

When monitoring host Windows machines the account should be an administrator on the remote Windows host machine and should have login rights locally on the machine where the base monitor is installed. 

You can then test WMI: What to try if you hit connection problems
