The Event Collector service uses the WS-Management protocol to collect events from remote computers. With the Event Collector service, you can create subscriptions to Windows events on remote computers and hardware events generated by baseboard management controllers (BMCs). BMCs must support the WS-Management protocol.

When you create a subscription, the events are forwarded to the computer on which the subscription has been created. They will appear in the Event Viewer.

Hardware events generated by Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) on Windows-based computers are collected locally using the IPMI driver and stored in the Hardware Events log, after which they can be forwarded like other Windows operating system events.

You can create subscriptions by using the Wecutil.exe command-line tool. For more information about how to use this tool, at a command prompt type wecutil /?. For more information about the Event Collector service, see Windows Event Collector.

Note  Windows Remote Management APIs require that all IPv6 addresses are enclosed in square brackets.
