How can I fetch information from SCVMM server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    I want to fetch some virtual inventory information on SCVMM server(2012) from my desktop. There are no web services available on SCVMM server unlike VMWARE VCenter. By spending some time on google, I came to know that SC2012SP1(SPF) hosts some web services for accessing SC components including VMM. But nobody would recommend  to deploy SC2012SP1(SPF) just for getting some information from VMM server. The other approach which I could find is powershell. But I have some basic questions here.

    1) Does VMM powershell cmdlets reside on VMM server itself or Admin console(installed on a different machine)? (bit confused with architecture after reading multiple blogs)

    2) Can I use powershell remoting from my desktop to invoke VMM cmdlets on VMM server without installing any components on my desktop?

    3) Is there a way to get data from VMM database(SQL Server)? Is the VMM DB schema exposed?

    Can someone please suggest? Thanks in advance!
