Quota violation while running WMI queries

Challenge

In the nworks Web UI, some monitored objects are grey or missing at all.  The Collector is installed on Windows 2003 Server.

Standard troubleshooting steps do not help, the SCOM agent log on the Collector server contains the following error: 

WMI Error: 0x8004106C

When you try to use the WBEMTEST utility you get the same WMI error, you get the following message:

WMI: Quota violation
