WBEM in HP insight Manager

I would like to know why WBEM is used in HP Insight Manager.?
in some documentation it says that HP uses WMI for windows and WBEM for Linux.
If I have just windows servers to monitor through HPSIM, do I need WBEM?
it also says with WBEM you don't need to install/configure SNMP service and community strings.is this in regard to windows servers? I thought WBEM is for Linux.

Any expert out there to clear this up?

Thanks

Well, WMI is the Windows implementation of WBEM.

Win 2000 -  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb742612.aspx

Win 2003 - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc180678.aspx

SMS v2.0 - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc917503.aspx

Win 2008 R2 - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770487.aspx

I don't know if that clears it up for you, though.

WBEM stands for Web-Based Enterprise Management. Basically, WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) is just Microsoft's version of the WBEM standard.  WBEM is industry wide and is getting more and more reliable information from the UNIX and Linux platform.

If all your servers are Wintel, then you only need native WMI, all Windows versions already have it embedded, so you only need to add them to your HPSIM environment.
