    Hi, Rudlafik.
    Great, it's a good decision.
    I tried this also, but wmi.get has some limitations. For example, you have to use an IP address but if you try FQDN instead you'd get an unsupported item in case of the name resolution error because wmi.get don't get the status code. I think wmi.getall is preferable but it requires some preprocessing.
    I tried to write a similar solution, maybe you will be interested
