CIM_LogicalIdentity class

The CIM_LogicalIdentity class is an abstract and generic association that indicates that two logical elements represent different aspects of the same underlying entity. The association conveys what can be defined with multiple inheritance and is restricted to the logical aspects of a managed system element. In most scenarios, the identity relationship is determined by the equivalence of keys, or some other identifying properties of the related elements.

The association should only be used in scenarios that are well understood, allowing more concrete definition and clarification in subclasses. A scenario where the relationship is reasonable, for example, represents a device that is both a bus entity and a functional entity where the device is a USB (bus) and keyboard (functional) entity.

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.

Syntax

class CIM_LogicalIdentity
{
  CIM_LogicalElement REF SameElement;
  CIM_LogicalElement REF SystemElement;
};

Members

The CIM_LogicalIdentity class has these types of members:

Properties

The CIM_LogicalIdentity class has these properties.

SameElement
Data type: CIM_LogicalElement
Access type: Read-only

Reference to an alternate aspect of the system entity.

SystemElement
Data type: CIM_LogicalElement
Access type: Read-only

Reference to one aspect of the logical element.

Remarks

WMI does not implement this class. For classes derived from CIM_LogicalIdentity, see Win32 Classes.

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.
