If you (anyone..) is doing WMI coding, a neat tool is scriptomatic, 
although I'm not sure it is going to have the interfaces you need.  1) it 
makes the code for you from a template 2) it knows enough about the 
interfaces that you can use the GUI to find the query/operation you want 
to do.

MS says:
A completely new version of the famous Scriptomatic, the utility that 
writes WMI scripts for you. (And, in the process, teaches you the 
fundamental concepts behind writing WMI scripts for yourself.) Unlike its 
predecessor, Scriptomatic 2.0 isn’t limited to writing just VBScript 
scripts; instead, Scriptomatic 2.0 can write scripts in Perl, Python, or 
JScript as well. 

ssh, etc. would work, but I wonder how much coding would need to be done 
to allow Samba clients to do a to a remote windows system.

I did find one web page that looked promising "it is based on the Windows 
Management Instrumentation (WMI) object model. ... The server in Carter's 
implementation consists of Samba running on a Sparc ..."

But Jerry was talking about a different subject.
