Configuration Service Providers
Configuration Service Providers execute configuration requests by changing or querying the values of settings. The Configuration Manager sends configuration requests to the Configuration Service Providers in XML format.
The settings that you can access are determined by roles. You get a role when you try to access Configuration Manager. The following table shows the roles for each device type.
