To collect WMI data NMIS has to use a WMI access tool. At As of NMIS 8.6.0 we are using
wmic, a commandline tool belonging to the Samba software suite.
NMIS 8.6.0 ships with a precompiled
wmic program, and installs it as
/usr/local/nmis8/bin/wmic. If the precompiled version should not work on your platform, the installer will notify you of that problem and you'll have to perform a manual build of
wmic. The sources for
wmic can be downloaded here: http://dl-nmis.opmantek.com/wmic-omk.tgz and you shouldn't have to do more than unpack that, and run
make. When the build is complete, you should copy the resulting
wmic file to
If the node in question requires a windows domain prefix for the WMI access, then prepend that to the
wmiusername followed by a "/", e.g. "
In NMIS 8.6.7 and newer you can also provide the domain in the form "
Automatic model selection does include WMI as a source of information, if SNMP is not available and if
wmipassword are set.
