Secondary WMI Credentials

Use case:

We have parts of the business that have some standalone servers and servers joined to different domains.  We create our device groups based on our business services, which means we have business services that are made up of devices that are standalone, and from different domains.  


We have to set the WMI user for these servers indepdently because one user ID inherited from parent groups won't work in such a scenario.


It would be useful to be able to use a function (in the manner of Applies To) to supply the WMI user value.  The function could inspect device properties to determine which WMI user account to use.
