Msvm_BootSourceSettingData class

Represents the parameters to set the boot source of a virtual machine. This class derives from CIM_SettingData.

The following syntax is simplified from MOF code and includes all inherited properties.

Syntax

class Msvm_BootSourceSettingData : CIM_SettingData
{
  string Description;
  string Caption;
  string InstanceID;
  string ElementName;
  uint32 BootSourceType;
  string OtherLocation;
  string FirmwareDevicePath;
  string BootSourceDescription;
};

Members

The Msvm_BootSourceSettingData class has these types of members:

Properties

The Msvm_BootSourceSettingData class has these properties.

BootSourceDescription
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The description of the boot source provided by the firmware.

BootSourceType
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

An enumeration value that specifies the type of the boot source.

These are valid values:

unknown (0)
drive (1)
network (2)
file (3)
Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen ( 64 )

A short textual description of the object.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A textual description of the object.

ElementName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The display name for this instance of SettingData. In addition, the display name can be used as an index property for a search or query. (Note: The name does not have to be unique within a namespace.)

FirmwareDevicePath
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The native path that the firmware uses to describe the device.

InstanceID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Within the scope of the instantiating Namespace, InstanceID opaquely and uniquely identifies an instance of this class. To ensure uniqueness within the NameSpace, the value of InstanceID should be constructed using the following "preferred" algorithm: OrgID:LocalID Where OrgID and LocalID are separated by a colon (:), and where OrgID must include a copyrighted, trademarked, or otherwise unique name that is owned by the business entity that is creating or defining the InstanceID or that is a registered ID assigned to the business entity by a recognized global authority. (This requirement is similar to the SchemaName_ClassName structure of Schema class names.) In addition, to ensure uniqueness, OrgID must not contain a colon (:). When using this algorithm, the first colon to appear in InstanceID must appear between OrgID and LocalID. LocalID is chosen by the business entity and should not be reused to identify different underlying (real-world) elements. If the above preferred algorithm is not used, the defining entity must assure that the resulting InstanceID is not reused across any InstanceIDs produced by this or other providers for the NameSpace of this instance. For DMTF-defined instances, the "preferred" algorithm must be used with the OrgID set to CIM.

OtherLocation
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The other location info, if any, that the firmware uses to further uniquely identify the boot source.
