MSISCSITARGET_iSCSISession class

Represents a network pipe between initiator and target MSISCSITARGET_iSCSIProtocolEndpoint instances. Only an iSCSI initiator can create an iSCSI session, while an iSCSI target must accept or reject a session request.

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

This method is inherited from the CIM_EnabledLogicalElement class.

 

Properties

The MSISCSITARGET_iSCSISession class has these properties.

AggregationBehavior
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

Indicates whether the pipe is composed of lower-level pipes, and if so, how these lower-level pipes are aggregated (in parallel or in sequence). The specific instances of NetworkPipe that are combined are described using the NetworkPipeComposition association.

In the context of M.3100, the ability to be composed of lower-level pipes is modeled as a Trail. A Trail is made up of one or more Connections. (Note that both Trails and Connections are subclasses of Pipe). Because of the flexibility of the NetworkPipeComposition association, there is no need to subclass NetworkPipe, as was done in M.3100, but merely to instantiate the NetworkPipeComposition association to describe the bundling of the lower-level pipes (i.e., the connections), or the sequencing of them.

This property is inherited from CIM_NetworkPipe.

Unknown (0)

No Lower-Level Composition (2)

Combined In Parallel (3)

Combined In Sequence (4)

Indicates the current health of the element. This attribute expresses the health of this element but not necessarily that of its sub-components.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

The following values have been defined:

Unknown (0)

The implementation cannot report on HealthState at this time.

OK (5)

The element is fully functional and is operating within normal operational parameters and without error.

Degraded/Warning (10)

The element is in working order and all functionality is provided. However, the element is not working to the best of its abilities. For example, the element might not be operating at optimal performance or it might be reporting recoverable errors

Minor failure (15)

All functionality is available but some might be degraded.

Major failure (20)

The element is failing. It is possible that some or all of the functionality of this component is degraded or not working.

Critical failure (25)

The element is non-functional and recovery might not be possible.

Non-recoverable error (30)

The element has completely failed, and recovery is not possible. All functionality provided by this element has been lost.

DMTF Reserved

DMTF has reserved the unused portion of the continuum for additional HealthStates in the future.

ImmediateData
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIB.IETF|iSCSI-MIB.iscsiSsnImmediateData"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_iSCSISessionSettings.ImmediateDataPreference")

Indicates whether the initiator and target have agreed to support immediate data on this session.

This property is inherited from CIM_iSCSISession.

InitialR2T

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIB.IETF|iSCSI-MIB.iscsiSsnInitialR2T"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_iSCSISessionSettings.InitialR2TPreference")

If set to true, indicates that the initiator MUST wait for an R2T before sending to the target. If set to false, the initiator MAY send data immediately, within limits set by iscsiSsnFirstBurstLength and the expected data transfer length of the request.

This property is inherited from CIM_iSCSISession.

InstallDate
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|ComponentID|001.5")

Indicates when the object was installed. The lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

InstanceID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key, MappingStrings ("Recommendation.ITU|M3100.TrailR1.trailId", "Recommendation.ITU|M3100.ConnectionR1.connectionID", "Recommendation.ITU|M3100.SubNetworkConnection.subNetworkConnectionID")

Within the scope of the instantiating Namespace, InstanceID opaquely and uniquely identifies an instance of this class. In order 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 creating/defining the InstanceID, or is a registered ID that is assigned to the business entity by a recognized global authority. (This is similar to the <Schema Name>_<Class Name> 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>. (For DMTF defined instances, the 'preferred' algorithm MUST be used with the <OrgID> set to 'CIM'.)

<LocalID> MUST include either a vendor specified unique identifier, or if mapping from an ITU M.3100 environment, the trailID, connectionID or subNetworkConnectionID of the instances of PipeR2.

This property is inherited from CIM_NetworkPipe.

MaxConnectionsPerSession
Data type: uint32

This property is inherited from CIM_iSCSISession.

MaxDataBurstLength
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Units ("Bytes"), MinValue (512), MaxValue (16777215), MappingStrings ("MIB.IETF|iSCSI-MIB.iscsiSsnMaxBurstLength"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_iSCSISessionSettings.MaxDataBurstLength")

The maximum length supported for unsolicited data sent within this session.

This property is inherited from CIM_iSCSISession.

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (1024)

The Name property defines the label by which the object is known. When subclassed, the Name property can be overridden to be a Key property.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

OperationalStatus
Data type: uint16 array
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ArrayType ("Indexed"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_ManagedSystemElement.StatusDescriptions")

Contains indicators of the current status of the element. The first value of OperationalStatus should contain the primary status for the element.

Note  OperationalStatus replaces the deprecated Status property. Due to the widespread use of the existing Status property in management applications, Microsoft strongly recommends that providers or instrumentation provide both the Status and OperationalStatus properties. When instrumented, Status (because it is single-valued) should also provide the primary status of the element.
 

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

The following values have been defined:

Unknown (0)

Indicates the implementation cannot report on OperationalStatus at this time.

Other (1)

Indicates an undefined state.

OK (2)

Indicates full functionality without errors.

Degraded (3)

Indicates the element is working and all functionality is provided. However, the element is not working to the best of its abilities. For example, the element might not be operating at optimal performance or it might be reporting recoverable errors

Stressed (4)

Indicates that the element is functioning, but needs attention. Overload and overheated are examples of Stressed states.

Predictive Failure (5)

Indicates that an element is functioning nominally but predicting a failure in the near future.

Error (6)

Indicates that an error has occurred.

Non-Recoverable Error (7)

A non-recoverable error has occurred.

Starting (8)

The job is starting.

Stopping (9)

The job is stopping.

Stopped (10)

The element has been intentionally stopped.

In Service (11)

Indicates the element is being configured, maintained, cleaned, or otherwise administered.

No Contact (12)

Indicates that the monitoring system has knowledge of this element, but has never been able to establish communications with it.

Lost Communication (13)

Indicates that the job is known to exist and has been contacted successfully in the past, but is currently unreachable.

Aborted (14)

Indicates the job stopped in an unexpected way. The state and configuration of the job might need to be updated.

Dormant (15)

Indicates that the job is inactive.

Supporting Entity in Error (16)

Indicates that an element on which this job depends is in error. This element may be OK but is unable to function because of the state of a dependent element. An example is a network service or endpoint that cannot function due to lower-layer networking problems.

Completed (17)

Indicates that the job has completed its operation. This value should be combined with either OK, ErrorError, or Degraded so that a client can tell if the complete operation Completed with OK (passed), Completed with Error (failed), or Completed with Degraded (the operation finished, but it did not complete OK or did not report an error).

Power Mode (18)

"Power Mode" indicates that the element has additional power model information contained in the associated PowerManagementService association.

DMTF Reserved

DMTF has reserved this portion of the range for additional OperationalStatus values in the future.

Vendor Reserved

Microsoft has reserved the unused portion of the range for additional OperationalStatus values in the future.

OtherEnabledState
