Deploying Client Agent with Machine Account

I was just fooling around to deploy client agents using only machine account, which I successfully did. However, someone came to me about a problem he is having to push agents from the console and the logs he sent me had this same error highlighted in RED below about failing to connect to WMI. All attempts to check connectivity to WMI and the admin$ share was successful. That problem was solved after discovering NETBIOS was not enable and once that was taken care of it worked beautifully.

One odd thing is that when I was fooling around, I discovered the exact same error only this time the agent push was successful. I am trying out further to see what I can find out.
