Examples

The following example initializes a new ManagementScope with a specific path and then connects the scope object to a WMI namespace. The example connects to a namespace on a remote computer.

using System;
using System.Management;
public class RemoteConnect 
{
    public static void Main() 
    {
        /*// Build an options object for the remote connection
        //   if you plan to connect to the remote
        //   computer with a different user name
        //   and password than the one you are currently using
          
             ConnectionOptions options = 
                 new ConnectionOptions();
                 
             // and then set the options.Username and 
             // options.Password properties to the correct values
             // and also set 
             // options.Authority = "ntlmdomain:DOMAIN";
             // and replace DOMAIN with the remote computer's
             // domain.  You can also use Kerberos instead
             // of ntlmdomain.
        */

        // Make a connection to a remote computer.
        // Replace the "FullComputerName" section of the
        // string "\\\\FullComputerName\\root\\cimv2" with
        // the full computer name or IP address of the
        // remote computer.
        ManagementScope scope = 
            new ManagementScope(
            "\\\\FullComputerName\\root\\cimv2");
