Chapter 17. WMI over WSMAN
- WSMAN protocols
- Using WMI through WSMAN
- Using CredSSP
- Comparing WSMAN and other remoting techniques
In the previous chapters, we’ve looked at using the capabilities built into the WMI cmdlets to provide access to remote systems. Using the -ComputerName parameter is a simple method of creating a connection to a remote machine, and this is the approach we’ve used in the majority of the techniques explored in previous chapters. But there are a number of scenarios where this approach isn’t enough:
- WMI uses Distributed COM (DCOM) to connect to a remote machine. This may not be available or may be blocked by a firewall.
- You may want to run multiple WMI commands against the same machine— ...
