CIM_LogicalElement class

The CIM_LogicalElement class is the base class for all system components that represent abstract system components, such as profiles, processes, or system capabilities, in the form of logical devices.

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.

Syntax

[Abstract, UUID("{8502C518-5FBB-11D2-AAC1-006008C78BC7}"), DisplayName("Logical Elements (CIM)"), AMENDMENT]

};

Members

The CIM_LogicalElement class has these types of members:

Properties

The CIM_LogicalElement class has these properties.

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen ( 64)

A short textual description of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A textual description of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

InstallDate
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only

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.

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Label by which the object is known. When subclassed, this property can be overridden to be a key property. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Status
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

String that indicates the current status of the object. Operational and non-operational status can be defined. Operational status can include "OK", "Degraded", and "Pred Fail". "Pred Fail" indicates that an element is functioning properly, but is predicting a failure (for example, a SMART-enabled hard disk drive).

Non-operational status can include "Error", "Starting", "Stopping", and "Service". "Service" can apply during disk mirror-resilvering, reloading a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is online, but the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Values include the following:

OK ("OK")
Error ("Error")
Degraded ("Degraded")
Unknown ("Unknown")
Pred Fail ("Pred Fail")
Starting ("Starting")
Stopping ("Stopping")
Service ("Service")
Stressed ("Stressed")
NonRecover ("NonRecover")
No Contact ("No Contact")
Lost Comm ("Lost Comm")

Remarks

WMI does not implement this class. For classes derived from CIM_LogicalElement, see Win32 Classes.

This documentation is derived from the CIM class descriptions published by the DMTF. Microsoft may have made changes to correct minor errors, conform to Microsoft SDK documentation standards, or provide more information.
