WBEM Agents v SNMP Agents

Hey guys, just thought i'd bump start this thread to see who's using WBEM providors and what they think of them. Personally, i haven't used them much as i found they crashed a lot on my systems. However, for interoperability with other systems, they would make life so easy as you could easily add information by querying the HP namespace. It would be easy to add ,say, firmware information to SCOM/SCCM etc.

Any opinions/thoughts welcome
If my post was helpful please award me Kudos! or Points :)

Re: WBEM Agents v SNMP Agents

Hi, WBEM are newer and imho better (authorization, SMH integration,...), but still some health indications are not included ... also WBEM providers and SNMP agents give you a bit different information (e.g. severity of some issues) ... I personally still wait a bit with WBEM providers ... Radek
