Get-WmiChildNameSpace

I got sick of fiddling around with WMI namespace so I produced a really simple script to cope with this. I call it Get-WmiNamespace:

 

PS> cat .\Get-WMIChildNameSpace.ps1
param ($Namespace=”root\cimv2″, $Computer=”.”, $Column=4)

Get-WmiObject -Computer:$Computer -NameSpace:$NameSpace __NameSpace |Format-Wid
e -Column:$Column
PS>
PS> .\Get-WmiChildNamespace.ps1

PS> .\Get-WmiChildNamespace.ps1 -namespace root -column 5

Enjoy!
