|Thomas Lee||WMI Eventing with PowerShell||Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) on Windows has an eventing system that enables you to create event subscribers using PowerShell. Event subscribers get automatically notified when a subscribed event has occurred, which enables you to perform some action when the event occurs.This session explains WMI’s eventing system, and shows how you can create both temporary and permanent event subscriptions to WMI events. Temporary event subscriptions are often used as a troubleshooting aid, while permanent event subscribers could be useful for additional compliance logging or security management.We cover subscribing to intrinsic, extrinsic and timer events and show you how you can harness WMI’s rich eventing system.||N/A||N/A||Link|
