1 Introduction

The Disk Management Remote Protocol is a set of Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) interfaces, as specified in [MS-DCOM], built for managing storage objects on a machine. The Disk Management Remote Protocol relies on detailed, low-level operating system and storage concepts. While the basic concepts are outlined in this specification, it is assumed that the reader has familiarity with these technologies.

For background information on storage, disk, and volume concepts, see [MSDN-DISKMAN] and [MSDN-VOLMAN]. For the IDL specification, see sections 6.1 and 6.2.

Sections 1.8, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in [RFC2119]. Sections 1.5 and 1.9 are also normative but do not contain those terms. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
