Win32_ACE vbscript sample code

The foundations for Manageability in Windows is 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. The Win32_ACE WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


The Win32_ACE abstract WMI class specifies an access control entry (ACE). An ACE grants permission to execute a restricted operation, such as writing to a file or formatting a disk. ACEs specific to Windows® Management Instrumentation (WMI) allow logons, remote access, method execution, and writing to the WMI repository.
