CIM_LocalFileSystem class

The CIM_LocalFileSystem class represents the file store controlled by a computer system through local means (for example, direct device-driver access). The file store can be managed directly by the computer system, without the need for another computer to act as a file server. For a clustered file system, however, the file system is local and, therefore, defers to the cluster.

[!Important]
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.

Members

The CIM_LocalFileSystem class has these types of members:

Properties

The CIM_LocalFileSystem class has these properties.

AvailableSpace

Data type: uint64

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Partition|002.4"), Units ("bytes")

Amount of free space, in bytes, for the file system. If unknown, enter 0.

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

BlockSize

Data type: uint64

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Units ("bytes")

Block size of the file system for data storage and retrieval.

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

Caption

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (64), DisplayName ("Caption")

A short textual description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

CasePreserved

Data type: boolean

Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the case of file names are preserved.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

CaseSensitive

Data type: boolean

Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, case-sensitive file names are supported.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

CodeSet

Data type: uint16 array

Access type: Read-only

Array that defines the character sets or encoding supported by the file system.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

Unknown (0)

Other (1)

ASCII (2)

Unicode (3)

ISO2022 (4)

ISO8859 (5)

Extended UNIX Code (6)

UTF-8 (7)

UCS-2 (8)

CompressionMethod

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Partition|002.7")

Free-form string that indicates the algorithm or tool used to compress the logical file. If the compression scheme is unknown or not described, use "Unknown". If the logical file is compressed, but the compression scheme is unknown or not described, use "Compressed". If the logical file is not compressed, use "Not Compressed".

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

CreationClassName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Key, MaxLen (256)

Name of the class or subclass used in the creation of an instance. When used with other key properties of the class, this property allows all instances of the class and its subclasses to be uniquely identified.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

CSCreationClassName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Key, MaxLen (256), Propagated ("CIM_ComputerSystem.CreationClassName")

Scoping computer system's creation class name.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

CSName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Key, MaxLen (256), Propagated ("CIM_ComputerSystem.Name")

Scoping computer system's name.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

Description

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Description")

A textual description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

EncryptionMethod

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Partition|002.8")

Free-form string that identifies the algorithm or tool used to encrypt a logical file. If the encryption scheme is not indulged (for security reasons, for example), use "Unknown". If the file is encrypted, but either its encryption scheme is unknown or not disclosed, use "Encrypted". If the logical file is not encrypted, use "Not Encrypted".

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

FileSystemSize

Data type: uint64

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Units ("bytes")

Size of the file system, in bytes. If unknown, enter 0 (zero).

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

InstallDate

Data type: datetime

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|ComponentID|001.5"), DisplayName ("Install Date")

Indicates when the object was installed. Lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

MaxFileNameLength

Data type: uint32

Access type: Read-only

Maximum length of a file name within the file system. A value of 0 (zero) indicates that there is no limit to the file name length.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

Name

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Name")

Label by which the object is known. When subclassed, this property can be overridden to be a key property.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

ReadOnly

Data type: boolean

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIB.IETF|HOST-RESOURCES-MIB.hrFSAccess")

If TRUE, the file system is designated as read only.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

Root

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIB.IETF|HOST-RESOURCES-MIB.hrFSMountPoint")

Path name or other information that defines the root of the file system.

This property is inherited from CIM_FileSystem.

Status

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (10), DisplayName ("Status")

String that indicates the current status of the object. Operational and non-operational status can be defined. Operational status can include "OK", "Degraded", and "Pred Fail". "Pred Fail" indicates that an element is functioning properly, but is predicting a failure (for example, a SMART-enabled hard disk drive).

Non-operational status can include "Error", "Starting", "Stopping", and "Service". "Service" can apply during disk mirror-resilvering, reloading a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is online, but the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Values include the following:

OK ("OK")

Error ("Error")

Degraded ("Degraded")

Unknown ("Unknown")

Pred Fail ("Pred Fail")

Starting ("Starting")

Stopping ("Stopping")

Service ("Service")

Stressed ("Stressed")

NonRecover ("NonRecover")

No Contact ("No Contact")

Lost Comm ("Lost Comm")
