CIM_ChassisInRack class

The CIM_ChassisInRack association represents the "containing" relationship between a rack and a chassis that it contains.

The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

The CIM_ChassisInRack class has these types of members:


The CIM_ChassisInRack class has these properties.


Data type: uint16

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Units ("Us")

Integer that indicates the lowest or bottom "U" in which the chassis is mounted. A "U" is a standard unit of measure for the height of a rack, or rack-mountable component, and is equal to 1.75 inches or 4.445 centimeters.


Data type: CIM_Rack

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Override ("GroupComponent"), Max (1)

A CIM_Rack that describes the rack that contains the chassis.


Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Free-form string that represents the positioning of the physical element within the physical package. Information relative to stationary elements in the container (for example, "second drive bay from the top"), angles, altitudes, and other data can be recorded in this property. This string could supplement or be used in place of instantiating the CIM_Location object.

This property is inherited from CIM_Container.


Data type: CIM_Chassis

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Override ("PartComponent")

A CIM_Chassis that describes the chassis which is mounted in the rack.


The CIM_ChassisInRack class is derived from CIM_Container.

WMI does not implement this class.
