Win32_NetworkClient class

The Win32_NetworkClient WMI class represents a network client on a Windows system. Any computer system on the network with a client relationship to the system is a descendant (or member) of this class.

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

Properties

The Win32_NetworkClient class has these properties.

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.

Description

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Description")

A textual description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

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.

Manufacturer

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("Win32Registry|SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\LanmanWorkstation\\NetworkProvider|Mfg")

Name of the manufacturer of the network client running on the computer system running Windows.

Example: "Microsoft Corporation"

Name

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: key, Override ("Name"), MappingStrings ("Win32Registry|SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\LanmanWorkstation\\NetworkProvider|Name")

Network name of the network client running on the computer system running Windows.

Example: "Microsoft Windows Network"

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")

The Win32_NetworkClient class is derived from CIM_LogicalElement.
