Properties

The MSFTSM_SoftwareIdentity class has these properties.

BuildNumber
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

The build number of the software.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

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

The Caption property is a short textual description (one- line string) of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement.

ClassificationDescriptions
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ArrayType ("Indexed"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_SoftwareIdentity.Classifications")

An array of free-form strings providing more detailed explanations for any of the entries in the Classifications array. Note that each entry is related to one in the Classifications array located at the same index.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

Classifications
Data type: uint16 array
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ArrayType ("Indexed"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_SoftwareIdentity.ClassificationDescriptions")

An array of enumerated integers that classify this software. For example, the software MAY be instrumentation (value=5) or firmware and diagnostic software (10 and 7). The use of value 6, Firmware/BIOS, is being deprecated. Instead, either the value 10 (Firmware) and/or 11 (BIOS/FCode) SHOULD be used. The value 13, Software Bundle, identifies a software package consisting of multiple discrete software instances that can be installed individually or together. Each contained software instance is represented by an instance of SoftwareIdentity that is associated to this instance of SoftwareIdentity instance via a Component association.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Contains a textual description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement.

ElementName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Contains a user-friendly name for the object. This property allows each instance to define a user-friendly name in addition to its key properties, identity data, and description information.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement.

HealthState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

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.

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

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>. <LocalID> is chosen by the business entity and SHOULD not be re-used to identify different underlying (real-world) elements. If the above 'preferred' algorithm is not used, the defining entity MUST assure that the resultant InstanceID is not re-used across any InstanceIDs produced by this or other providers for this instance's NameSpace. For DMTF defined instances, the 'preferred' algorithm MUST be used with the <OrgID> set to 'CIM'.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

Languages
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

The language editions supported by the software. The language codes defined in ISO 639 should be used.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

MajorVersion
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

The major number component of the software's version information - for example, '12' from version 12.1(3)T. This property is defined as a numeric value to allow the determination of 'newer' vs. 'older' releases. A 'newer' major release is indicated by a larger numeric value.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

Manufacturer
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Manufacturer of this software.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

MinorVersion
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

The minor number component of the software's version information - for example, '1' from version 12.1(3)T. This property is defined as a numeric value to allow the determination of 'newer' vs. 'older' releases. A 'newer' minor release is indicated by a larger numeric value.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

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.

ReleaseDate
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only

The date the software was released.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

RevisionNumber
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

The revision or maintenance release component of the software's version information - for example, '3' from version 12.1(3)T. This property is defined as a numeric value to allow the determination of 'newer' vs. 'older' releases. A 'newer' revision is indicated by a larger numeric value.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

SerialNumber
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A manufacturer-allocated number used to identify the software.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

Status
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated ("CIM_ManagedSystemElement.OperationalStatus"), MaxLen (10)

Contains a string indicating the primary status of the object.

Note  This property is deprecated and replaced by the OperationalStatus property. If you choose to use the Status property for backward compatibility it should be secondary to the OperationalStatus property.
 

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

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

Contains strings describing the corresponding values in the OperationalStatus array. For example, if an element in OperationalStatus contains the value Stopping, then the element at the same array index in this property may contain an explanation as to why an object is being stopped.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

TargetOperatingSystems
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

Specifies the target operating systems of the software. This property should be used when a target operating system is not listed in the TargetOSTypes array values.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.

VersionString
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A string representing the complete software version information - for example, '12.1(3)T'. This string and the numeric major/minor/revision/build properties are complementary. Since vastly different representations and semantics exist for versions, it is not assumed that one representation is sufficient to permit a client to perform computations (i.e., the values are numeric) and a user to recognize the software's version (i.e., the values are understandable and readable). Hence, both numeric and string representations of version are provided.

This property is inherited from CIM_SoftwareIdentity.
