Win32_PortConnector class

The Win32_PortConnector WMI class represents physical connection ports, such as DB-25 pin male, Centronics, or PS/2.

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

CreationClassName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: CIM_Key, MaxLen (256)

Name of the first concrete class that appears in the inheritance chain used in the creation of an instance. When used with the other key properties of the class, the property allows all instances of this class and its subclasses to be identified uniquely.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

Description

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Description")

Description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

ExternalReferenceDesignator

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("SMBIOS|Type 8|External Reference Designator")

External reference designator of the port. External reference designators are identifiers that determine the type and use of the port.

Example: "COM1"

InstallDate

Data type: datetime

Access type: Read-only

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

Date and time the object is installed. This property does not need a value to indicate that the object is installed.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

InternalReferenceDesignator

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("SMBIOS|Type 8|Internal Reference Designator")

Internal reference designator of the port. Internal reference designators are specific to the manufacturer, and identify the circuit board location or use of the port.

Example: "J101"

Manufacturer

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (256)

Name of the organization responsible for producing the physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

Model

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Name for the physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

Name

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Name")

Label for the object. When subclassed, the property can be overridden to be a key property.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

OtherIdentifyingInfo

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Additional data, beyond asset tag information, that can be used to identify a physical element. One example is bar code data associated with an element that also has an asset tag. If only bar code data is available and unique or able to be used as an element key, this property is NULL and the bar code data is used as the class key in the tag property.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

PartNumber

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (256)

Part number assigned by the organization responsible for producing or manufacturing the physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

PortType

Data type: uint16

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("SMBIOS|Type 8|Port Type")

PoweredOn

Data type: boolean

Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the physical element is powered on.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

SerialNumber

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Manufacturer-allocated number used to identify a physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

SKU

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Stock keeping unit number for a physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

Status

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

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

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 online, yet 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")

Tag

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Key, MaxLen (256), Override ("Tag"), MappingStrings ("WMI")

Unique identifier of a port connection on the computer system.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

Example: "Port Connector 1"

Version

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Version of the physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.
