Unable to collect data from CIM Server on Cisco MDS 9000 series switch

We want to collect configuration and performance data from switch itself (without using DCNM).

We have enabled CIM server on switch but when we try to query enumerateInstances(), EnumerateClassNames() or any other standard methods, It return following error-

WBEMException[CIM_ERR_NOT_SUPPORTED]: Operation EnumerateClassNames is not supported by the WBEM service infrastructure.
CIM_Error instances:
instance of CIM_Error {
ErrorType = 4;
OtherErrorType = null;
OwningEntity = "DMTF";
MessageID = "WIPG0203";
Message = "Operation EnumerateClassNames is not supported by the WBEM service infrastructure.";
MessageArguments = {"EnumerateClassNames", "CISCO_PhysicalComputerSystem", "/cimv2:CISCO_PhysicalComputerSystem"};
PerceivedSeverity = 2;
ProbableCause = 0;
ProbableCauseDescription = null;
RecommendedActions = null;
ErrorSource = "/cimv2:CISCO_PhysicalComputerSystem";
ErrorSourceFormat = 2;
OtherErrorSourceFormat = null;
CIMStatusCode = 7;
CIMStatusCodeDescription = "CIM_ERR_NOT_SUPPORTED";

I am using sample SMI client application which is shipped along with DCNM package.

In my knowledge DCNM SMI interface should be same as CIM server interface installed directly on switch.

Can anyone please point out, what we are doing wrong here?

Any help is appreciated.
