Part I: Scripting > Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)

Chapter 7. Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)

ROAD MAP

  • This chapter shows how to use Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to manage computers over a network.

  • WMI can do something as simple as shutting down a computer or as complex as documenting its every setting.

  • You cannot remotely manage Windows XP Home Edition with WMI scripts.

  • This is hairy stuff. You should be very familiar with the material in Chapter 3, “Scripting and Objects,” and Chapter 4, “File and Registry Access,” before reading this chapter.

  • You may have run into the acronyms WBEM and CIM. This chapter discusses these as well.
