Inventory Object: ConsolidatedWMIEvidence

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

ConsolidatedWMIEvidence objects are uploaded to the ConsolidatedWMIEvidence table in the operations (inventory) database. Multiple imports will merge updated data with existing records, and add new records as applicable.

ConsolidatedWMIEvidence provides a simpler interface to specify Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) properties on computers. Other Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) properties are supported from Unix computers as well. The most important data to provide in this spreadsheet is operating system installs. The 'Win32_OperatingSystem' class and the 'Name' property contains this data.

Attributes are listed here in alphabetical order.

Property Attributes Notes
ClassName Alpha-numeric text (maximum 50 characters). Mandatory. Database key.

The WMI class name of the evidence. An example is 'Win32_OperatingSystem'.

ComputerID Unsigned integer (bigint). Mandatory. Database key.

The identifier used in the source connection for the computer. It must match the ComputerID from the Computer spreadsheet or the row will be ignored.

InstanceName Alpha-numeric text (maximum 256 characters). Default: . Mandatory. Database key.

The name of the WMI class instance. This is important when there a multiple instances of a WMI class on a computer. An example is the 'Win32_VideoController' class that may have many instances with the same properties. In this case you need to specify the name of the instance here, 'Intel(R) HD Graphics Family' or 'NVIDIA Quadro K2100M' for example.

Note: Strictly, this attribute may be null, because it forms part of a compound database key. However, null values may cause import errors (where this object does not get imported), and multiple records from the same connection having nulls may cause data loss through over-writing. It is therefore best practice to treat this field as mandatory.
PropertyName Alpha-numeric text (maximum 50 characters). Mandatory. Database key.

The WMI property name of the WMI evidence. An example is 'Name'.

PropertyValue Alpha-numeric text (maximum 256 characters). Mandatory. Database key.

The value of the property of the WMI evidence. An example is 'Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise'
