CIM_Setting class

The CIM_Setting class represents configuration-related and operational parameters for one or more managed system elements. A managed system element can have multiple setting objects associated with it. The current operational values for an element's parameters are reflected by properties in the element itself or by properties in its associations. These properties do not have to be the same values present in the setting object. For example, a modem may have a setting baud rate of 56 kilobytes per second, but be operating at 19.2 kilobytes per second.

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 of the inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.


class CIM_Setting
  string Caption;
  string Description;
  string SettingID;
