MDM Bridge WMI Provider and Windows 10 MDM Capabilities

MDM WMI Bridge provider is used to map the CSPs to WMI. For WMI, refer to this link: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Management_Instrumentation

It is worth noting that OMA-DM {Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Device Management (DM)} is the protocol in which Windows 10 MDM is based.  See the following link for more details. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OMA_Device_Management

Therefore referring to these terms interchangeably consequently has some differences. Technically, one can refer to Windows 10 MDM as OMA-DM but it absolutely becomes clearer to refer to it as Windows 10 MDM.

MDM Bridge WMI Provider provides a bridge to the capabilities of Windows 10 MDM. When a connection is initiated to the rootcimv2mdmdmmap namespace, this is similar to connecting to the MDM Bridge WMI Provider.
– These Classes in the namespace bundles the Configuration Service Provider (CSP) of Windows 10 MDM.

Note: PowerShell can be used to configure and get information through the MDM

See the following link on how to run and configure Windows 10 MDM: https://techdirectarchive.com/2020/01/24/single-app-kiosk-mode-configuration-using-mdm-bridge-wmi-provider/

Here are some vital points to note when employing the MDM Bridge WMI Provider

  • Ensure to run the MDM Bridge WMI Provider with Administrative privilege when executing the PowerShell script.
  • Ensure you have the PSTool downloaded because the local system context is required to view and modify the device settings.
  • This can be achieved by running in the download path of the PsTool. Enter the command to launch PsExec in MD or Power Shell.

    – psexec.exe -i -s cmd.exe or
    – psexec.exe -i -s PowerShell.exe
  • Emphasis on the system and user settings cannot be taken for granted. It is necessary to emphasize that, certain user settings won’t show up when connected to the System context, just as specific device settings wot show up in user settings.
