Windows Powershell discovery missing functionality compared to Windows discovery with NTCMD or WMI.

Our prefered way of discover applications and host resources on Windows is by Powershell. It  is the mainstream mechanism support in current and upcomming Windows versions. It is also very firewall friendly compared to NTCMDB and WMI. Only one port needs to be open for the discovery.


The problem is that you miss alot of functionalit compared to WMI/NTCMD.


-  Deep discovery of IIS not supported with Powershell.

- Plugins seem to be limited supported with Powershell. We hve found that we miss version information of MS SQL database.


Have someone done any work-around on this issue ?.

Are HP planing to enchance the functionaly with Powershell ?.
