SNMP in WinPE

Hi All,

Going to do this tomorrow and wanted to run it by.

I need to use SNMP (basically talk to as witch via the Q-Bridge mof, to find out what port is being used by what MAC.

Is there a simple way I can do this in WinPE?  I tried with an old WinPE (3.0?) and SNMP is not supported.

I made one with ADK 8.0 this evening will test it in the AM.  I did notice there is poweshell.

Any thoughts?

I will be running a script via vbs but am open for anything!

why are you fixated on using windows pe?  A linux live-cd would be a better fit here.
