Msvm_TransparentBridgingService class

Serves as a placeholder for the service inside the switch that learns MAC addresses and serves as a bridge between the Msvm_VirtualSwitch and Msvm_DynamicForwardingEntry classes.

The following syntax is simplified Managed Object Format (MOF) code, and it includes all of the inherited properties.

Properties

The Msvm_TransparentBridgingService class has these properties.

AgingTime
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

The timeout period in seconds for aging out dynamically learned MAC addresses. This property is inherited from CIM_TransparentBridgingService and is always set to 300.

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A short textual description (one- line string) of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement and is always "Microsoft Virtual Switch Transparent Bridging Service".

CreationClassName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A short textual description (one- line string) of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_Service and is always "Msvm_TransparentBridgingService".

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A textual description of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement and is always set to "Microsoft Virtual Switch Transparent Bridging Service".

ElementName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A user-friendly name for the object. This property allows each instance to define a user-friendly name in addition to its key properties, identity data, and description information. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement.

EnabledDefault
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

An administrator's default or startup configuration for the Enabled State of an element. This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement and is always set to 2 (Enabled).

EnabledState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

The enabled and disabled states of an element. This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement and is always set to 5 (Not Applicable).

FID
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

The filtering database identifier used by VLAN-aware switches that have more than one filtering database. This property is inherited from CIM_TransparentBridgingService and is always set to 0.

HealthState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

The current health of the element. This attribute expresses the health of this element but not necessarily that of its subcomponents. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement and is always set to 5 (OK).

InstallDate
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only

A datetime value that 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 and is not used.

Keywords
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

A free-form array of strings that provide descriptive words and phrases that can be used in queries. To-date, this property has not been implemented, because it is not standardized. Also, if this was a necessary query construct, then it would be required higher in the inheritance hierarchy. The latter has not proven necessary. Therefore, the property is deprecated. This property is inherited from CIM_NetworkService.

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A name that uniquely identifies the service and provides an indication of the functionality that is managed. This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

OperationalStatus
Data type: uint16 array
Access type: Read-only

The current status of the element. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement and is always set to 2 (OK).

OtherEnabledState
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The enabled or disabled state of the element when the EnabledState property is set to 1 (Other). This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement and is not used.

OtherProtocolType
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The type of protocol that is being forwarded when the value of ProtocolType is 1 (Other). This property is inherited from CIM_ForwardingService.

PrimaryOwnerContact
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A string that provides information on how the primary owner of the Service can be reached. This property is inherited from CIM_Service and is not used.

PrimaryOwnerName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The name of the primary owner for the service, if one is defined. This property is inherited from CIM_Service and is not used.

ProtocolType
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

The type of protocol that is being forwarded. This property is inherited from CIM_ForwardingService and is always set to 15 (Ethernet).

RequestedState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

The last requested or desired state for the management service. This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement and is always set to 12 (Not Applicable).

ServiceURL
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A URL that provides the protocol, network location, and other service-specific information required to access the service. It is deprecated with the recommendation that ServiceAccessURI be instantiated instead. This new class correctly positions the semantics of the service access, and clarifies the format of the information. This property is inherited from CIM_NetworkService.

Started
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

Indicates whether the service has been started (TRUE), or stopped (FALSE). This property is inherited from CIM_Service and is always set to True.

StartMode
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Indicates whether the service is automatically started by a system, an operating system, and so on, or is started only upon request. This property is inherited from CIM_Service and is always set to "Automatic".

StartupConditions
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

A free-form array of strings that specify any specific pre-conditions that must be met in order for this service to start correctly. It was expected that subclasses would refine the inherited StartService method to suit their specific requirements. To-date, this refinement has not been necessary. Also, the property is not useful, because it is not standardized. If this was a necessary construct, then it would be required higher in the inheritance hierarchy (on Service). The latter has not proven true. Therefore, the property is deprecated. This property is inherited from CIM_NetworkService.

StartupParameters
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

A free-form array of strings that specify any specific parameters that must be supplied to the StartService method in order for this service to start correctly. It was expected that subclasses would refine the inherited StartService methods to suit their specific requirements. To-date, this refinement has not been necessary. If the method were refined, then its parameters would more formally convey this information. Therefore, the property is deprecated. This property is inherited from CIM_NetworkService.

Status
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement but it is not used.

StatusDescriptions
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

Strings that describe the various OperationalStatus array values. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement and is always set to "OK".

SystemCreationClassName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The creation class name of the scoping system. This property is inherited from CIM_Service and is always set to "Msvm_ComputerSystem".

SystemName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The NetBIOS name of the hosting computer system. This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

TimeOfLastStateChange
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only

The date or time when the enabled state of the element last changed. This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement and is not used.

Access to the Msvm_TransparentBridgingService class might be restricted by UAC Filtering. For more information, see User Account Control and WMI.
