SMS_StatusMessage Server WMI Class

The SMS_StatusMessage Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class is an SMS Provider server class, in Configuration Manager, that represents individual status messages generated by Configuration Manager to provide information about a variety of events, including process completion, errors, conditions, and user actions.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties.

Properties

Component
Data type: String

Access type: Read

Qualifiers: None

Name of the component that created the message. For user-defined messages, this name comes from the ApplicationName context qualifier that you must set before calling a raise status message method.

MachineName
Data type: String

Access type: Read

Qualifiers: None

Name of the computer that created the message. For user-defined messages, this name comes from the MachineName context qualifier that you must set before calling a raise status message method.

MessageID
Data type: UInt32

Access type: Read

Qualifiers: [Range("0-65535")]

Unique ID of message text in a message DLL. This property is set to the associated value when your application calls a method listed in the following table.

39997 RaiseInformationalStatusMsg Method in Class SMS_StatusMessage
39998 RaiseWarningStatusMsg Method in Class SMS_StatusMessage
39999 RaiseErrorStatusMsg Method in Class SMS_StatusMessage

MessageType
Data type: UInt32

Access type: Read

Qualifiers: None

Type of message. Possible values are:

256 Milestone. Use this type at the end of an operation to indicate the operation's success or failure. If the operation was successful, use the Milestone type in an informational message. If the operation failed, use a milestone message type in a warning or error message.
512 Detail. Use this type to illustrate the steps in a complex operation. Often, detail messages are meaningful only within the context of the sequence of status messages representing a complex operation.
768 Audit. Use this type for informational messages that provides a trail of actions taken by the Configuration Manager administrator. An audit message also depicts an operation that results in objects being added, modified, or deleted. You do not need to create audit messages; the provider automatically generates these messages for you.
1024 NTEvent.

Data type: String

Access type: Read

Qualifiers: None

The DLL that is associated with the status message. This is not the name of the DLL itself, but a display string corresponding to the ModuleName property value defined in the SMS_StatMsgModuleNames Server WMI Class class. You use the ModuleName value to get the DLL name.

PerClient
Data type: UInt32

Access type: Read

Qualifiers: None

Value indicating whether the status message was generated by a client component. Possible values are listed below. Messages generated on a per-client basis tend to be quite numerous. Thus, this property provides an easy way to filter them out.
