Win32_PrivilegesStatus 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_PrivilegesStatus WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


The Win32_PrivilegesStatus WMI class reports information about privileges required to complete an operation. It may be returned when an operation failed, or when a partially populated instance has been returned.
