Description

The Get-WmiObject cmdlet gets instances of WMI classes or information about the available WMI classes. The ComputerName parameter can always be used to specify a remote computer. If the List parameter is specified, the cmdlet gets information about the WMI classes that are available in a specified namespace. If the Query parameter is specified, the cmdlet runs a WMI query language (WQL) statement.

The Get-WmiObject cmdlet does not use the Windows PowerShell remoting infrastructure to perform remote operations. You can use the ComputerName parameter of the Get-WmiObject cmdlet even if your computer does not meet the requirements for Windows PowerShell remoting and even if your computer is not configured for remoting in Windows PowerShell.

Parameters

-Amended

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the objects that are returned from WMI should contain amended information. Typically, amended information is localizable information, such as object and property descriptions, that is attached to the WMI object..

 

Required?

false

Position?

named

Default Value

none

Accept Pipeline Input?

false

Accept Wildcard Characters?

false

-AsJob

Runs the command as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to finish.

When you use the AsJob parameter, the command returns an object that represents the background job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job finishes. If Get-WmiObject is used against a remote computer, the job is created on the local computer, and the results from remote computers are automatically returned to the local computer. To manage the job, use the cmdlets that contain the Job noun (the Job cmdlets). To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

Note: To use this parameter with remote computers, the local and remote computers must be configured for remoting. Additionally, you must start Windows PowerShell by using the "Run as administrator" option in Windows Vista and later versions of Windows,. For more information, see about_Remote_Requirements.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs and about_Remote_Jobs.

-Authentication <AuthenticationLevel>

Specifies the authentication level to be used with the WMI connection. Valid values are:

-1: Unchanged

0: Default

1: None (No authentication in performed.)

2: Connect (Authentication is performed only when the client establishes a relationship with the application.)

3: Call (Authentication is performed only at the beginning of each call when the application receives the request.)

4: Packet (Authentication is performed on all the data that is received from the client.)

5: PacketIntegrity (All the data that is transferred between the client and the application is authenticated and verified.)

6: PacketPrivacy (The properties of the other authentication levels are used, and all the data is encrypted.)

-Authority <string>

Specifies the authority to use to authenticate the WMI connection. You can specify standard NTLM or Kerberos authentication. To use NTLM, set the authority setting to ntlmdomain:<DomainName>, where <DomainName> identifies a valid NTLM domain name. To use Kerberos, specify kerberos:<DomainName>\<ServerName>". You cannot include the authority setting when you connect to the local computer.

-ComputerName <string[]>

Specifies the computer against which you want to run the management operation. The value can be a fully qualified domain name, a NetBIOS name, or an IP address. Use the local computer name, use localhost, or use a dot (.) to specify the local computer. The local computer is the default. When the remote computer is in a different domain from the user, you must use a fully qualified domain name.

This parameter does not rely on Windows PowerShell remoting, which uses WS-Management. You can use the ComputerName parameter of Get-WmiObject even if your computer is not configured to run WS-Management remote commands.

-Filter <string>

Specifies a Where clause to use as a filter. Uses the syntax of the WMI Query Language (WQL).

Important: Do not include the Where keyword in the value of the parameter. For example, the following commands return only the logical disks that where the DeviceID equals 'c:' and the services where the name equals 'WinRM', without using the Where keyword:

get-WmiObject Win32_LogicalDisk -filter "DeviceID = 'c:' "

get-wmiobject win32_service -filter "name='WinRM'"

1: Anonymous (Hides the credentials of the caller.)

2: Identify (Allows objects to query the credentials of the caller.)

3: Impersonate (Allows objects to use the credentials of the caller.)

4: Delegate (Allows objects to permit other objects to use the credentials of the caller.)

<CommonParameters>

This command supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug, ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, OutBuffer, OutVariable, WarningAction, and WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

Inputs and Outputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet. The return type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet returns.

 

Inputs

None

You cannot pipe input to Get-WmiObject.

Outputs

PSObject or System.Management.Automation.RemotingJob

When you use the AsJob parameter, the cmdlet returns a job object. Otherwise, the object that Get-WmiObject returns depends on the value of the Class parameter.

Notes

To access WMI information on a remote computer, the cmdlet must run under an account that is a member of the local administrators group on the remote computer. Alternatively, the default access control on the WMI namespace of the remote repository can be changed to give other account access rights.

By default, only some of the properties of a WMI class are displayed. The set of properties that will be displayed for each WMI class is specified in the Types.ps1xml configuration file. One of the examples included in this Help topic demonstrates how to override this behavior by using the Format-List cmdlet.

Description

-----------

This command displays information about the services on the remote computer. It displays the information by specifying the Internet Protocol (IP) address 127.0.0.1. You can change this IP address to any other valid IP address on your network so that you can display information about the services on that remote computer. By default, the account you are running under must be a member of the local administrators group on the remote computer that you specify .
