I dug a bit further and ran WMI Diagnosis Utility -- Version 2.2 on the
machine giving this error. It gave me the following result.

Windows Firewall 'Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)' group rule:
............................................. DISABLED.
31210 15:26:16 (0) ** => This will prevent any WMI remote connectivity
to/from this machine.
31211 15:26:16 (0) **    - You can adjust the configuration by executing
the following command:
31212 15:26:16 (0) **    i.e. 'NETSH.EXE ADVFIREWALL FIREWALL SET RULE
GROUP="Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)" NEW ENABLE=YES'
31213 15:26:16 (0) ** Note: With this command all inbound and outbound
WMI rules are activated at once!
31214 15:26:16 (0) **       You can also enable each individual rule
instead of activating the group rule.

Running this command fixed my issue.
