Script hangs when accessing remote machine

The below script just hangs with no error msg.

Get-WmiObject -computername jaguar -Class Win32_Service -Filter “name=‘XblGameSave’”

I can access jaguar with ping and with Win10 file explorer. The same script executes fine when accessing 4 other machines on the same network.

The PS version is 5 - minor version 1 - built 19041 - revision 1

Any thoughts/help will be much appreciated - TIA, Joe


Check Windows Management Framework, Windows firewall service is running or not. Mostly a server restart would fix this kind of issue with WMI. but its not a proper solution.

You can do the same by using Invoke-Command as well.

Thanks for the reply KV - I did solve the problem using invoke-command.
