Learn About Scripting for Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)

You can see why we prefer to call it just WMI. By the way, the "Instrumentation" part has nothing to do with drums, guitars, and keyboards-but learning WMI will make you cooler than the most calloused jazz musician who ever lurked about a dimly lit late-night watering hole. WMI is used to manage more than just hardware, and it is not limited to only desktops. WMI is also used in managing IIS, DNS, and other server applications.
