WinMgmt.exe is a Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) process.

Usage: winmgmt [/backup ] [/restore ]

[/resyncperf] [/standalonehost []] [/sharedhost]

[/verifyrepository []] [/salvagerepository]



Causes WMI to back up the repository to the specified file name. The

filename argument should contain the full path to the file location.

This process requires a write lock on the repository so that write

operations to the repository are suspended until the backup process is



Manually restores the WMI repository from the specified backup file.

The filename argument should contain the full path to the backup file

location. To perform the restore operation, WMI saves the existing

repository to write back if the operation fails. Then the repository is

restored from the backup file that is specified in the filename

argument. If exclusive access to the repository cannot be achieved,

existing clients are disconnected from WMI. The flag argument must be a

1 (force - disconnect users and restore) or 0 (default - restore if no

users connected) and specifies the restore mode.


Registers the system performance libraries with WMI.

/standalonehost []

Moves the Winmgmt service to a standalone Svchost process that has a

fixed DCOM endpoint. The default endpoint is "ncacn_ip_tcp.0.24158".

However, the endpoint may be changed by running Dcomcnfg.exe. The level

argument is the authentication level for the Svchost process. If level

is not specified, the default is 4 (RPC_C_AUTHN_LEVEL_PKT).


Moves the Winmgmt service into the shared Svchost process.

/verifyrepository []

Performs a consistency check on the WMI repository. When you add the

/verifyrepository switch without the argument, then the live

repository currently used by WMI is verified. When you specify the path

argument, you can verify any saved copy of the repository. In this

case, the path argument should contain the full path to the saved

repository copy. The saved repository should be a copy of the entire

repository folder.


Performs a consistency check on the WMI repository, and if an

inconsistency is detected, rebuilds the repository. The content of the

inconsistent repository is merged into the rebuilt repository, if it

can be read. The salvage operation always works with the repository

that the WMI service is currently using. MOF files that contain the

#pragma autorecover preprocessor statement are restored to the



The repository is reset to the initial state when the operating system

is first installed. MOF files that contain the #pragma autorecover

preprocessor statement are restored to the repository.
