The Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) name and password pairs entered under OptionsProtocol SettingsGlobal Protocol Settings also control the amount of data displayed on the Properties pages. If the root name and password pair is not available, many of the properties are omitted because the target node providers require root access. The Properties pages are used to view WBEM properties on remote target systems and can be accessed in two ways:
From the System Page under the Links tab, click Properties. The Properties pages display for the target system.
Select ToolsSystem InformationProperties. Select the target system from here and click [Run now]. The Properties pages display for the target system.
The Properties pages open in a new window and includes three tabs:
Identity. Displays WBEM properties that help describe the target system on the network. These properties can include such physical aspects as location, local time, operating system characteristics, and owner information.
Status. Displays WBEM properties that help determine the status of the system. At a minimum, you can determine the memory status and process status. Depending on the target node installation of WBEM, you might be able to determine status on all of the major computer sub-systems.
Configuration. Displays an inventory of the target node based on WBEM properties. At a minimum, this inventory includes operating system information, but it might also include information on CPUs, disk drives, file systems, mother boards, software installations, and networks.
