Windows Credentials (WMI)

You must use a Windows administrator account to collect details about Microsoft Windows servers. We use a technology called WMI to retrieve this information and this information is only available if we can provide administrator credentials.

Information we can retrieve for Microsoft Windows servers using WMI includes:

  • IP Address
  • Node name
  • MS Software (Machine Type)
  • System Description
  • System Location
  • Contact

All of the above except Machine Type are discovered in SNMP discovery as well.
