Powershell WMI Access Denied When Retrieving MetaFrame_Server_LoadLevel Object

This post is obscure enough for me to think it may never be read.
It was posted July 14, 2009.
Let’s see when the first read happens.

Storming the Bastille of this July 14 problem then, I am using the following escargut-wrenching Powershell WMI command to determine the load on a particular server in my XenApp farm.

$loadlevel = Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\citrix -Class metaframe_server_loadlevel -ComputerName $serverName)

Powershell was denied access. Specifically, I received the following error from the agents of the Sun King Laissez-les manger le gâteau, or in Powershell-ese Access Denied

I will not pretend that I personally debugged this issue, but how you fix it is add the user group ‘Local Administrators’ to the Administrators group of your XenApp Farm in Citrix Access Management Console.

I think what it is, is that the adding of the Access overcomes the Access Denied issue. Or something.
