SNMP is a problem for us too, so I wrote a simple perl script to call
wbemcli that connects to an installed instance of the OpenPegasus WMIMapper
on a Windows server, which, in turn, connects to WMI on the target machine
and returns the necessary information.  It took a little work to get it
running, but it wasn't too bad.  The connection is encrypted, so we can even
connect to Windows servers across the Internet when we don't have a suitable
proxy available.

I don't mind sharing the script, but it was written for internal use and, as
such, is not even close to user friendly.  I'll be there are at least a
dozen different ways you could break it, but it works great for us.  Just
let me know if you're interested.
