CIM_PackageInChassis class

The CIM_PackageInChassis association represents the relationship in which a chassis can contain other packages, such as other chassis and cards.

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 of its inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.


[Abstract, UUID("{FAF76B74-798C-11D2-AAD1-006008C78BC7}"), AMENDMENT]
class CIM_PackageInChassis : CIM_Container
  CIM_Chassis         REF GroupComponent;

  CIM_PhysicalPackage REF PartComponent;


The CIM_PackageInChassis class has these types of members:


The CIM_PackageInChassis class has these properties.

Data type: CIM_Chassis
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Override ("GroupComponent") , Max (1)

Reference to the chassis that contains other physical packages. This property is inherited from CIM_Component.

Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Free-form string that represents the positioning of the physical element within the physical package. Information relative to stationary elements in the container (for example, "second drive bay from the top"), angles, altitudes, and other data can be recorded in this property. This string could supplement or be used in place of instantiating the CIM_Location object. This property is inherited from CIM_Container.

Data type: CIM_PhysicalPackage
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Override ("PartComponent")

Reference to the physical package that is contained in the chassis. This property is inherited from CIM_Component.


The CIM_PackageInChassis class is derived from CIM_Container.

WMI does not implement this class.

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.
