CIM_Mount class

The CIM_Mount class represents an association between a file system and a directory to which it is attached.

The semantics of this relationship require that the mounted directory be contained by a file system (via the file storage association) that is different from the file system referenced as the dependent. The directory's containing file system can be local or remote. For example, a local file system on a Solaris computer system can mount a directory from the file system accessed via the computer's CDROM drive (that is, another local file system). On the other hand, in a "remote" case, the directory is first exported by its file system, which is hosted on another computer system acting, for example, as a file server. To distinguish the two mounts, a CIM_Export association should always be defined for the remotely accessed/mounted directories.

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.


[Abstract, UUID("{75BCF4F6-DB46-11D2-B4C8-80080C7B6371}"), AMENDMENT]
class CIM_Mount : CIM_Dependency
  CIM_NFS       REF Dependent;
  CIM_Directory REF Antecedent;


The CIM_Mount class has these types of members:


The CIM_Mount class has these properties.

Data type: CIM_Directory
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Max (1), Override ("Antecedent")

A CIM_Directory describing the directory mounted.

Data type: CIM_NFS
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Override ("Dependent")

A CIM_NFS describing the FileSystem the Directory is mounted on.


CIM_Mount is derived from CIM_Dependency.

WMI does not implement this class.
