WMI is just WBEM, but uses a different transport protocol than stock WBEM, which typically uses HTTP over TCP/5988 or HTTPS over TCP/5989. They also use slightly different namespaces. Apart from that they are mostly identical however, and if you use a WBEM-WMI gateway it is a no brainer.MacWmiWmi Equivalent For Mac

  • Using Powershell and WMI to get the MAC address of Remote workstation It has cropped up from time to time that we need to retrieve information, in this example, the MAC address from remotely located workstations.
  • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) really came into its own in Windows Server 2003.While it was available programmatically in Windows 2000, it wasn't available to us common folk until Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 were released.
  • With Find MAC Address, you can find the MAC address of your or remote computer and also of any computer within the specified range of IP addresses. Unlike similar software, Find MAC Address can find the MAC addresses of computers using four methods (ARP, NetBios, NetAPI, WMI, SNMP).
OpenPegasus has a gateway called wmimapper that runs on Win32 systems, and provides a WBEM-WMI translation layer. You can download the source from there and compile it, or you can use the pre-compiled package from HP (I am pretty sure this is public-use since its the same code and there's no link to buy or anything). Either way you need to install the binary onto a Windwos system that has access to the WMI pools you want to read.
Find a WBEM client utility for Linux. I am using wbemcli which compiled really easy on my SUSE 9.3 system. Other tools are around if you look for them.

For
Use the WBEM tool to query the WMImapper gateway, but instead of using the /root/cimv2 namespace, use /$host/root/cimv2 to identify the Win32 system you want to query. This is basically like using hostcimnamespace in WMI tools, but you are using /host/cim/namespace instead.
Here is an example using wbemcli to query the host RHINO for its OEMStringArray data:

The WBEM query is sent to the default WBEM-over-HTTP channel to w2k3ee.labs.ntrg.com, with the namespace set to /rhino/root/cimv2 which tells the gateway what to query via WMI. After that, its just regular request for the Win32_ComputerSystem class, and the OEMStringArray property. RHINO returns the answer to the w2k3ee via WMI, which returns the data back to the wbemcli client via WBEM.
