SmartCode VNC Manager 6.0.6 adds support for WMI Monitoring and Inventory

Many of the VNC Manager users have been asking for ability to fetch additional information about registered computers and show it in the Registered Computers list. We listened and in the v6.0 introduced WMI Properties feature.

With this feature there is hardly anything that you can't monitor on a remote Windows-based computer. WMI Properties can be used as an inventory tool as well.

Selecting WMI Properties to Monitor

To start using WMI Properties open Tools \ Options dialog (F7 shortcut). and select the WMI Properties node.

Configure WMI inventory properties
  1. Expand the "Available WMI classes" combobox to select a WMI class. The current version of the VNC Manager list classes from the root\cimv2 namespace.
  2. Lists the properties exposed by the selected WMI class. If you want a property to be shown in the Registered Computers list you should select it and click the Add button.
  3. List of the properties selected whose values will be fetched during Registered Computers status update. For each property a column will be added to the Registered Computers list.

NOTE: When the VNC Manager attempts to establish WMI connection it uses the logon credentials assigned to the Registered Computer being updated.

WMI query results

The VNC Manager will attempt to fetch WMI properties when the application is performing scheduled status updates or when an update is initiated via the Check VNC/RDP/SSH Server Status command (Ctrl+U shortcut).
