Web Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) is an architecture for managing systems using Web services (Wikipedia). The architecture contains many components (databases, query languages, protocols, and software implementations), some of which are exported through interfaces that MIMIC Web Simulator can simulate.
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is the Microsoft implementation of WBEM, as detailed in this Microsoft page. MIMIC does not currently support the Microsoft-proprietary DCOM access, but the open WinRM API based on WS-MAN and accessible also with Openwsman. This Microsoft page about Windows Remote Management and WMI further details the WinRM API, with database-like operations available in the Microsoft WMI Query Language (WQL).
You can install an optional package with Wizards->Update in MIMICview to run a basic WinRM simulation to interoperate with WinRM.
The Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) and Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) simulation downloadable with Wizard->Update in MIMICview simulates a Cisco C210 UCS server with VOIP phones and collaboration applications.
We have tested this simulation with Cisco Prime Collaboration:
and EMC SMARTS:
and HPE NNMi:
and NetIQ(HP Microfocus) AppManager 8:
To decode HTTPS packets in wireshark, you need to supply the HTTP server private keys for decryption.
The command line to search for private keys in ESXi’s SSH terminal is
[root@localhost:~] find . -name *key* ./etc/ssh/keys-root ./etc/ssh/keys-root/authorized_keys ./etc/ssh/.#ssh_host_dsa_key ./etc/ssh/.#ssh_host_dsa_key.pub ./etc/ssh/.#ssh_host_rsa_key.pub ./etc/ssh/.#ssh_host_rsa_key ./etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key ./etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key.pub ./etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key.pub ./etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key ./etc/vmware/ssl/.#rui.key ./etc/vmware/ssl/rui.key ...
The command line example to SCP download the key is
$ scp firstname.lastname@example.org:/etc/vmware/ssl/rui.key ~/rui.pem
Identify the TCP port number of the server.
Scroll down to the SSL entry on the left pane, then click New to open the New Profile window, and then click the Key File button to browse your computer’s files and select the downloaded key.
Enter the TCP port number of the server in the New Profile window and enter “http” in the Protocol field.
Click OK to close the browsing window and the preference window.
