Does WMI works on Linux machines.

Hi,

we are using AdventNet Opmanager for monitoring our IT infrastrucuture. Now when i am trying to add machine and try WMI credentials on Linux machines its not working however SNMP credentials are working at all.
On windows servers both WMI and SNMP are working so want to know does WMI works on Linux natively or i need to installl any specific WMI agent ??

Hi,
 I'm afraid not, WMI is "Windows Management Instrumentation", as the name suggests it's a Windows thing.

I think there is a standard called CIM (Common Information Model) which makes use of the WBEM standard (on which WMI is also based).
More opensource projects for this sort of thing here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/sblim/
