I have set up your Version 5.3 Virtual Appliance and have tried to configure new hosts (both on initial setup and through the Web Interface).  I have WMI enabled and also have started and configured WinRM per a KB article.  The hosts fail Validation with the following error;

 

- Failed to validate <FQDN of host>: Server side WMI error occurred: 0x00000005

 

I have tried multiple times, methods, and combinations of names, IP addresses, and FQDN's all with no luck and the above error being the most prevalent.

 

I had hoped to use this product to replace PRTG in my environment, but if hosts are this difficult to ad I may have to rethink that decision.
