  • 1.  What is the implication of disabling wbem service?

    Posted Nov 08, 2019 11:28 AM

    We are suffering from an excessive amount of events like described in https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/74607

    https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/74607. https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/74607

    As a workaround it's recommend to disable this wbem service, but what are the consequences? I am suspicious as I don't know what the service is used for. Nor do I know wheter e.g. veeam one is using it to gather some data, or HPE.

    Does anybody know more?
