OMI

You may have noticed that I mention WMI from time to time Smile

 

Up to now WMI has been a Windows technology. Powerful but limited to Windows.  WMI has taken a giant step into the big bad world with the creation of OMI – Open Management Infrastructure thats WMI for non-Windows systems

Details are here

    Thank you for sharing this !
    I hope the Unix/Linux community will adopt it 😉 (PowerShell management to every device!)

  2. So honestly, what does this mean in the long term? I didn’t test it yet but there is a WMI client for linux: http://www.krenger.ch/blog/wmi-commands-from-linux/. Are you saying this would eventually lead to WMI server implementations for linux, OXS, BSD, Cisco etc? Would WMI effectively complement and replace SNMP at that point?
