This is a wizard for Nagios XI that allows you to execute plugins that exist on the Windows system. This wizard contains the plugin (from my Nagios Windows Plugins Project) for your Nagios XI system, as well as a new Windows 2022 logo. Currently only basic authentication is supported, which means you must have a local account on the Windows machine to login. Whether or not you need administrator permissions is going to be dependent upon the plugin you are executing. Do not unzip the file. Just download, browse to Admin -> Manage Config Wizards, and upload the zip file there.
This wizard helps you execute plugins on Windows systems.

Similar to the SSH Proxy Wizard, the Via WinRM Wizard expects that there are plugins on the remote host that you want to execute. You can download plugins for your Windows systems from the Exchange, or create pluings yourself if you like.

Thsi wizard will install, and create a command for it that looks like this,

$USER1$/ -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -u $ARG1$ -p $ARG2$ -a $ARG3$ -P $ARG4$ -A $ARG5$

ARG1 - The username you will use to authenticate to the remote host
ARG2 - The password you will use to authenticate to the remote host
ARG3 - The authentication method you will use to authenticate to the remote host, currently only basic-http, and basic-https are supported*
ARG4 - The full path to the plugin you want to execute. E.g. C:Pluginscheck_cpu.ps1
ARG5 - Any arguments you would like to pass to the plugin. E.g. "-warning 80 -critical 90"

* Note that because only basic auth is supported, WinRM will not authenticate Active Directory or LDAP accounts.
