WMI Connection Manager

A WMI connection manager enables a package to use Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to manage information in an enterprise environment. The Web Service task that Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) includes uses a WMI connection manager.

When you add a WMI connection manager to a package, Integration Services creates a connection manager that that will resolve to a WMI connection at run time, sets the connection manager properties, and adds the connection manager to the Connections collection on the package. The ConnectionManagerType property of the connection manager is set to WMI.

You can configure a WMI connection manager in the following ways:

  • Specify the name of a server.
  • Specify a namespace on the server.
  • Select the authentication mode for connecting to the server.

You can set properties through SSIS Designer or programmatically.

For more information about the properties that you can set in SSIS Designer, see WMI Connection Manager Editor.

For information about configuring a connection manager programmatically, see ConnectionManager and Adding Connections Programmatically.
