CIM_ManagedSystemElement class

The base class for the system element hierarchy.

Any distinguishable system component is a candidate for inclusion in this class. Examples include software components, such as files; devices, such as disk drives and controllers; and physical components, such as chips and cards

The following syntax is simplified from MOF code and includes all inherited properties.

Properties

The CIM_ManagedSystemElement class has these properties.

Caption

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Short description (one-line string) of the object.

Description

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Description of the object.

InstallDate

Data type: datetime

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Mappingstrings ("MIF.DMTF|ComponentID|001.5")

The date the object was installed. A lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.

Name

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

The name of the object.

Status

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (10)

Current status of the object. Various operational and nonoperational statuses can be defined. Operational statuses include: "OK", "Degraded", and "Pred Fail" (an element, such as a SMART-enabled hard disk drive, may be functioning properly but predicting a failure in the near future). Nonoperational statuses include: "Error", "Starting", "Stopping", and "Service". The latter, "Service", could apply during mirror-resilvering of a disk, reload of a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is on-line, yet the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states.
