public class ManagementScope : ICloneable

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodManagementScope()

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementScope class, with default values. This is the default constructor.

System_CAPS_pubmethodManagementScope(ManagementPath)

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementScope class representing the specified scope path.

System_CAPS_pubmethodManagementScope(ManagementPath, ConnectionOptions)

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementScope class representing the specified scope path, with the specified options.

System_CAPS_pubmethodManagementScope(String)

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementScope class representing the specified scope path.

System_CAPS_pubmethodManagementScope(String, ConnectionOptions)

Initializes a new instance of the ManagementScope class representing the specified scope path, with the specified options.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyIsConnected

Gets a value indicating whether the ManagementScope is currently bound to a WMI server and namespace.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyOptions

Gets or sets options for making the WMI connection.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyPath

Gets or sets the path for the ManagementScope.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodClone()

Returns a copy of the object.

System_CAPS_pubmethodConnect()

Connects this ManagementScope to the actual WMI scope.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethodICloneable.Clone()

Creates a new object that is a copy of the current instance.

The following example initializes a new ManagementScope with a specific path and then connects the scope object to a WMI namespace. The example connects to a namespace on a remote computer.

using System;
using System.Management;
public class RemoteConnect 
{
    public static void Main() 
    {
        /*// Build an options object for the remote connection
        //   if you plan to connect to the remote
        //   computer with a different user name
        //   and password than the one you are currently using

             ConnectionOptions options = 
                 new ConnectionOptions();

             // and then set the options.Username and 
             // options.Password properties to the correct values
             // and also set 
             // options.Authority = "ntlmdomain:DOMAIN";
             // and replace DOMAIN with the remote computer's
             // domain.  You can also use Kerberos instead
             // of ntlmdomain.
        */

        // Make a connection to a remote computer.
        // Replace the "FullComputerName" section of the
        // string "\\\\FullComputerName\\root\\cimv2" with
        // the full computer name or IP address of the
        // remote computer.
        ManagementScope scope = 
            new ManagementScope(
            "\\\\FullComputerName\\root\\cimv2");
        scope.Connect();

        // Use this code if you are connecting with a 
        // different user name and password:
        //
        // ManagementScope scope = 
        //    new ManagementScope(
        //        "\\\\FullComputerName\\root\\cimv2", options);
        // scope.Connect();

        //Query system for Operating System information
        ObjectQuery query = new ObjectQuery(
            "SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem");
        ManagementObjectSearcher searcher = 
            new ManagementObjectSearcher(scope,query);

        ManagementObjectCollection queryCollection = searcher.Get();
        foreach ( ManagementObject m in queryCollection)
        {
            // Display the remote computer information
            Console.WriteLine("Computer Name : {0}", 
                m["csname"]);
            Console.WriteLine("Windows Directory : {0}", 
                m["WindowsDirectory"]);
            Console.WriteLine("Operating System: {0}",  
                m["Caption"]);
            Console.WriteLine("Version: {0}", m["Version"]);
            Console.WriteLine("Manufacturer : {0}", 
                m["Manufacturer"]);
        }
    }
}
