WMI uses the Component Object Model (COM) and COM Automation extensively throughout its object model. SMS extends this to provide a set of COM Automation objects for the SMS Advanced Client that enable simple scripting of client operations. When writing scripts for SMS Advanced Clients, you typically do not access WMI directly; instead, you use COM Automation objects.
