This is a great answer for the other question (WMI query using VBScript). But, I believe this line...

Set oServices = oLocator.ConnectServer(sMachine, "root\cimv2", sUserName, sPassword)

should read...

Set oServices = oLocator.ConnectServer(sMachine, "root\sms\site_<site#>", sUserName, sPassword)
