  • /restore - Restores the WMI repository from the specified file.
  • /resyncperf - Registers system performance libraries with WMI.
  • /standalonehost - Moves the winmgmt service to a standalone scvhost process.
  • /sharedhost - Moves the winmgmt service to a shared scvhost process.
  • /verifyrepository - Runs a consistency check on a specified WMI repository or the live repository if no path is specified.
  • /salvagerepository - Runs a consistency check and rebuild the repository if an inconsistency is found.
