A memory leak occurs in the Wmiprvse.exe process when you query an iSCSI WMI class in Windows Vista or in Windows Server 2008

On a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, a memory leak occurs in the Wmiprvse.exe process when you query either of the following iSCSI Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Classes:

  • MSiSCSIInitiator_SendTargetPortalClass
  • MSiSCSIInitiator_TargetClass

Additionally, the memory usage for the Wmiprvse.exe process continues to increase. In this scenario, memory runs out and the WMI query does not respond.
