Posted by Trevor Sullivan on 2010/04/22


Microsoft has a published list of optional WMI privileges at the following link:

These privileges are sometimes necessary for enabling certain operations in WMI. For example, if you do not specify the Security privilege when accessing instances of the Win32_NTLogEvent WMI class, you will not be able to view event log entries from the Windows security event log.
