CIM_BootService class

The CIM_BootService class represents the functionality provided by a device or software, or by a network, to load an operating system on a unitary computer system.

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_BootService class has these types of members:

Methods

The CIM_BootService class has these methods.

Method Description
StartService Puts the service in the started state. Not implemented by WMI.
StopService Puts the service in the stopped state. Not implemented by WMI.

Properties

The CIM_BootService 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.

CreationClassName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: CIM_Key, DisplayName ("Class Name")

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_Service.

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.

Name

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Key

The Name property uniquely identifies the service and provides an indication of the functionality that is managed. This functionality is described in more detail in the object's Description property.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

Started

Data type: boolean

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Started")

If TRUE, the service has started.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

StartMode

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Start Mode")

Indicates whether the service is automatically started (for example, by an operating system) or only started upon request.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

Automatic ("Automatic")

Manual ("Manual")

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")

SystemCreationClassName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Propagated ("CIM_System.CreationClassName"), CIM_Key, DisplayName ("System Class Name")

Scoping system's creation class name.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

SystemName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Propagated ("CIM_System.Name"), CIM_Key, DisplayName ("System Name")

Name of the system that hosts the service.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

Remarks

The CIM_BootService class is derived from CIM_Service.

WMI does not implement this class.

This documentation is derived from the CIM class descriptions published by the DMTF. Microsoft may have made changes to correct minor errors, conform to Microsoft SDK documentation standards, or provide more information.
