Hyper-V WMI Classes

The following are the Hyper-V WMI classes.

In this section

Topic Description
CIM Classes
CIM classes are the base classes that the WMI classes are based on. While not directly used by the Hyper-V WMI provider, they provide much of the infrastructure that the implemented classes use.
BIOS Classes
The virtual BIOS is a software image that is loaded into RAM to configure some of the basic aspects of and boot a computer system. There is one BIOS element per computer system and that element cannot be replaced or removed.
Input Classes
The user input devices are represented by these classes. A virtual system always has one instance of each class associated with it.
Integration Services Classes
Integration services are software services that run on top of the guest operating system inside of a child virtual machine (VM) and as part of the virtualization stack in the management operating system to provide some level of integration with the management operating system.
Memory Classes
The memory classes model the memory for a virtual system.
Networking Classes
The networking architecture for virtualization models the physical networking architecture. It uses standard networking objects such as switches, switch ports, and network adapters.
Processor Classes
The processor classes model a processor for a virtual system.
Profile Registration Classes
Virtualization WMI classes related to profile registration.
RemoteFX Classes
The RemoteFX virtualization WMI classes are used to manage RemoteFX resources and virtual machines.
Resource Management Classes
Virtualization WMI classes related to resource management.
Serial Devices Classes
The serial devices in a virtual machine consist of serial controllers and serial ports. Each virtual system has exactly one serial controller, and each serial controller has exactly two serial ports.
Storage Classes
The storage objects are separated into three types: controllers, drives, and media.
Video Classes
All virtual machines reflect the presence of an emulated S3 video controller and an accelerated, synthetic video controller.
Virtual System Classes
Virtualization WMI classes related to the virtual system.
Virtual System Management Classes
Virtualization WMI classes related to virtual system management.
