Undrelying connection method for Windows servers

I am fairly new to HPOO, i have been spending time on learning various operations and building some flows. One question which has been lingering in my mind is, 'How does HPOO operations connects to a Windows machine? Does it use NetBIOS or WMI'. If i am running some operations for a windows servers, will there be any threads or processes HPOO creates temporarily to excute the operation on the remote?

Thank you for contacting HPE Forum.

My name is Carlos, I am from the OO/CSA team.

Regarding your question, the connection method will depend of the operation that you are using. Some may use WMI and some other NetBIOS. Please check on the operation description or in the folder description to get more details about which method is used.

I hope you find this information useful.
