Win32_SID - WMI sample in Perl

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)

use strict;
use Win32::OLE('in');

use constant wbemFlagReturnImmediately => 0x10;
use constant wbemFlagForwardOnly => 0x20;

my @computers = ("DELL17");
foreach my $computer (@computers) {
   print "\n";
   print "==========================================\n";
   print "Computer: $computer\n";
   print "==========================================\n";

   my $objWMIService = Win32::OLE->GetObject("winmgmts:\\\\$computer\\root\\CIMV2") or die "WMI connection failed.\n";
   my $colItems = $objWMIService->ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_SID", "WQL",
                  wbemFlagReturnImmediately | wbemFlagForwardOnly);

   foreach my $objItem (in $colItems) {
      print "AccountName: $objItem->{AccountName}\n";
      print "BinaryRepresentation: " . join(",", (in $objItem->{BinaryRepresentation})) . "\n";
      print "ReferencedDomainName: $objItem->{ReferencedDomainName}\n";
      print "SID: $objItem->{SID}\n";
      print "SidLength: $objItem->{SidLength}\n";
      print "\n";
   }
