SCCM Right Click Tools Error -2147217405

I am trying to run some client action from SCCM console but there is an error like the picture below. I had been googled around and found solution 1 which listed below but sad that it is not working for me! After troubleshooting for while, I found myself a solution which listed below as solution 2. And now I manage to run the client action from my SCCM console.
Solution 1:
At your SCCM Server
  1. Search for wmimgmt.msc
  2. Right click WMI control (Local)
  3. Click on properties
  4. Click on the security tab
  5. Expand Root
  6. Select SMS and then click the security button
  7. Select SMS Admin, and Allow Enable Account and Remote Enable
  8. Click OK to exit.
If the solution above doesn't work, you may need to follow the next solution.

Solution 2:
At the PC that you want to connect
  1. Right Click on Computer, Click on Manage
  2. Expand System Tools
  3. Expand Local Users and Groups, Click on Groups
  4. Right Click Administrators Group, Click on Properties
  5. Click Add to add the desired user the group.
It should be working now. =) 


  1. I hope sccm service account should have permissions if I am right, I tried both solutions but its same issue

  2. I granted access to Sccm admin account and sccm service account both places but still no luck..
