In this webcast, we examine how Windows PowerShell can access all the power and capability of Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). We describe not only how to use Windows PowerShell to access WMI, but also how to pass WMI objects and collections through the Windows PowerShell pipeline. We explore how to utilize WMI properties and methods in Windows PowerShell scripts and illustrate the underlying security and configuration features in WMI. Join this session to learn how to use the alternate credentials capabilities in Windows PowerShell to connect to WMI on remote computers.
