wbemtest usage

What have you done (in a practical way) with WBEMTEST?


In my testing here is one of my usages for viewing the MOF info of an SMS/SCCM DCM Configuration Item

1. Goto SMS server
2. Connect root\sms\sms_<sitecode>
3. Click query
4. WQL Query: select * from SMS_CONFIGURATIONITEM
5. Double-click  SMS_ConfigurationItem.CI_ID=<#>
6. Show MOF
7. LocalizedCategoryInstanceNames = {...}

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So, what's the question?  :)

WBEMTEST is very helpful for those who are writing a WMI provider.  It allows you to test out the new classes and simulate responses, etc.

However, if you're just viewing/editing an existing established provider, then the "WMI Object Browser" from the "WMI Tools" download is much easier.

I am curious how folks in the field use wbemtest, if in fact they do. As you indicate it is of more use to someone developing a provider, but I thought it would be interesting to see if others have used it strategically in systems management or troubleshooting.
