I am trying to get a simple get-wmiobject win32_process from a machine in the domanin, but using a different credential
$credential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ("admsql", (Get-Content C:\scripts\securestring.txt | convertto-securestring))
Get-WmiObject win32_process -ComputerName '10.2.0.56' -Credential $credential
Also IO have tried with
Get-WmiObject win32_process -ComputerName '10.2.0.56' -Credential $credential -Impersonation Impersonate -Authentication PacketIntegrity
The admsql account in the machine is local adm and all the privilegies are in the dcomcnfg.
I have no idea what is going on. Can you help me guys ?

First, let's try and simplify the problem a bit by eliminating the credential object. As a test, try doing the Get-WmiObject call, passing the "MACHINENAME\USERNAME" to -Credential. Let it prompt you for the password. Does that work?

Tried and keep doing
Get-WmiObject : Access denied
At line:1 char:1

So, just to be clear, you're doing:
Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Process -ComputerName '10.2.0.56' -Credential 'COMPUTERNAME\admsql'
Replacing COMPUTERNAME with the machine's actual NetBIOS computer name, and "admsql" is a local Admin account on that machine. Correct?

Don, found the problem.
When I use administrator it works fine. When I try to use the admsql, that is a account in the local administrator group, not works with access denied. We have Symantec endpoint in the server, but even with enabled it works with administrator account. Do you have some idea Don ?
