WMI discovery and monitoring is disabled by default. The Server Manager attempts to perform WMI discovery for each Windows host that has no active SNMP agent.

To enable or disable WMI discovery and monitoring:

  1. At the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory, type the following command:

    sm_edit conf/esm/ESM.import
  2. Locate the following lines:

    # Enable WMI discovery and monitoring of hosts.
  3. Enter any one of the following:

    • To enable, set IsWMI to TRUE.

      • To disable, set IsWMI to FALSE.

  4. Save and close the file.

  5. Restart the ESM Domain Manager to load the changed values in ESM.import file into the ESM server.
