How to compile and run openwsman from GIT ? 
===========================================

After checking out the project from git, create a build directory
with "mkdir build", cd into it, run "cmake .." and "make".

See package/openwsman.spec.in for running cmake in 'release' mode

Most likely you will need to install some of the packages, depending
on the distribution you are running.

Pre-build (RPM) packages for many distributions are available at
https://build.opensuse.org/project/show?project=Openwsman


Packages and other software needed:

- libxml2
- sblim-sfcc (from the sblim project)
- swig and python for python binding support
- other development packages like cmake, gcc, etc.

After all packages are installed, compile everything and install. The
server can run as a daemon, which would require root access; But it
can be run in the foreground with debugging messages printed to stdout
as well. This the help output when you run:

% /usr/local/sbin/openwsmand --help
Usage:
  openwsmand [OPTION...] WS-Management Server

Help Options:
  -?, --help                   Show help options

Application Options:
  -n, --no-plugins             Do not load any plugins
  -d, --debug                  Start daemon in foreground and turn on debugging
  -s, --syslog=0-6             Set the verbosity of syslog output.
  -c, --config-file=<file>     Alternate configuration file


Starting from version 0.1.1 a configuration file is needed. you can
find an example in the ./etc directory. The configuration file has the
following syntax:

[server]
port = 5985
#ssl_port = 5986
ssl_cert_file = /etc/openwsman/servercert.pem
ssl_key_file = /etc/openwsman/serverkey.pem
#digest_password_file = /etc/openwsman/digest_auth.passwd
basic_password_file = /etc/openwsman/simple_auth.passwd
enum_idle_timeout = 5000

min_threads = 1
max_threads = 1

#use_digest is OBSOLETED, see below.

#
# Authentication backend for BASIC authentication. Default is to read a configuration file defined with 'basic_password_file'
#

#basic_authenticator = libwsman_pam_auth.so
#basic_authenticator_arg = openwsman


[client]
port = 5988
agent = openwsman 2.2.4

[cim]
default_cim_namespace = root/cimv2

# The following are in part fake namespaces for some publicly available CIM implementations.
vendor_namespaces = OpenWBEM=http://schema.openwbem.org/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2,Linux=http://sblim.sf.net/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2,OMC=http://schema.omc-project.org/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2,Reef=http://reef.sblim.sf.net/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2,CWS=http://cws.sblim.sf.net/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2


To be able to put the configuration files under /etc/openwsman, run the configure script
with the --sysconfdir option using the value /etc. If this option is not used, the default will
be under PREFIX (/usr/local/etc ).

To run in SSL mode you need to enable the SSL port and create certificates and adapt the configuration
with the correct path to the files.

To start the server in the foreground, run:

% /usr/local/sbin/openwsmand  -d

You can also specify the configuration file to be used on the command line using the -c option.


On the client side, which has the following options

 % /usr/local/bin/wsman --help-all

Usage:
  wsman [Option...] <action> <Resource Uri>

Usage:
  wsman [Option...] <action> <Resource Uri>

To create a password file, use the htpasswd and htdigest utilities from the apache distribution.

You can connect to the server with the following command, which is part of the DMTF WS-Management specification (Draft)

wsman identify    -h <hostname> --port 8889 -u wsman --password secret


The above command should give the following result:
