WMI PowerShell module

 

 

 


 

 

Have you ever needed to create a new WMI property ? Have you ever needed to create that WMI property in a specefic (and new) WMI class ?

Well, if you did, the WMI-Module is what you are looking for then !

After setting up the method on how to measure a Task sequence time (which I explained here), I needed to add it at the end of our task sequence in the “tatoo” section.

In OSD, we generaly like to put the same information, in various locations : Registry, environment variable and in the WMI repository. The registry and environment variable are pretty easy (or lets say that was something I had already done before), but how do we actually add a WMI property and a new WMI class ?

That is a good question right ?

I have started to write some cmdlets in order to create a class, then a property, then to import or export MOF files, and sooner then I thought, I came up with the WMI PowerShell Module.

And it is my turn to give something back to the PowerShell community.

For now, the module is composed of the following cmdlets :

Compile-MofFile
Export-MofFile
Get-WMIClass
Get-WMICommands
New-WMIClass
New-WMIProperty
Remove-WMIClass
Remove-WMIProperty
Set-WMIPropertyValue

New cmdlets will probably still come, and most likley, with your very valuable feedback, I will publish a new updated version with any eventual bug fixes etc…
