Windows Management Instrumentation
Microsoft® Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 is a Windows®-based product that you can use to manage, support, and maintain a distributed network of computer resources. SMS enhances its abilities by using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), which is management infrastructure that supports monitoring and controlling system resources through a common set of interfaces.
You can use SMS successfully without understanding WMI. However, if you want to extend or automate SMS, or troubleshoot certain types of SMS problems, you need to know how to use WMI and understand its relationship with SMS.
