Win32_SID - WMI sample in JScript

The foundations for Manageability in Windows 7/2008/Vista/XP/2000 and Millennium Edition/'98 are Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI; formerly WBEM) and WMI extensions for Windows Driver Model (WDM).

ActiveXperts Network Monitor provides the ability to build monitor check routines based on WMI. ActiveXperts has collected more than a hundred WMI samples. You can use these samples as a base for new check routines you can write yourself.

On this site, you can find many WMI samples.


Win32_SID

Description

The Win32_SID WMI class represents an arbitrary security identifier (SID). This property cannot be enumerated.

Example(s)

var wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10;
var wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20;

var arrComputers = new Array("DELL17");
for (i = 0; i < arrComputers.length; i++) {
   WScript.Echo();
   WScript.Echo("==========================================");
   WScript.Echo("Computer: " + arrComputers[i]);
   WScript.Echo("==========================================");

   var objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\\\" + arrComputers[i] + "\\root\\CIMV2");
   var colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_SID", "WQL",
                                          wbemFlagReturnImmediately | wbemFlagForwardOnly);

   var enumItems = new Enumerator(colItems);
   for (; !enumItems.atEnd(); enumItems.moveNext()) {
      var objItem = enumItems.item();

      WScript.Echo("AccountName: " + objItem.AccountName);
      try { WScript.Echo("BinaryRepresentation: " + (objItem.BinaryRepresentation.toArray()).join(",")); }
         catch(e) { WScript.Echo("BinaryRepresentation: null"); }
      WScript.Echo("ReferencedDomainName: " + objItem.ReferencedDomainName);
      WScript.Echo("SID: " + objItem.SID);
      WScript.Echo("SidLength: " + objItem.SidLength);
   }
}
