Methods

The MSISCSITARGET_ReplicationService class has these methods.

MethodDescription
AddToRemoteReplicationCollection

Add (or start a job to add) additional service access points (i.e. ProtocolEndpoints) and/or remote systems associations to an existing instance of RemoteReplicationCollection.If 0 is returned, the function completed successfully and no ConcreteJob instance created. If 4096/0x1000 is returned, a ConcreteJob is started, a reference to which is returned in the Job output parameter. If parameter AccessPoints is NULL, then only the RemoteComputerSystem is added for the existing AccessPoints associated to the RemoteReplicationCollection. If RemoteComputerSystem is NULL, then only AccessPoints are added for the existing remote ComputerSystems known to the RemoteReplicationCollection.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

CreateGroupReplicaFromElements

Create (or start a job to create) new storage objects, which are replicas of the specified source storage objects (SourceElements). Note that using the input parameter, SyncType, this function can be used to instantiate the replicas, and to create an ongoing association between the source and replica elements. If 0 is returned, the function completed successfully and no ConcreteJob instance created. If 4096/0x1000 is returned, a ConcreteJob is started, a reference to which is returned in the Job output parameter. This method combines the functionality of CreateGroup and CreateGroupReplica, in one call.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

CreateRemoteReplicationCollection

Create (or start a job to create) a new instance of RemoteReplicationCollection, and optionally supply the remote system and the paths (i.e. ProtocolEndpoints) that are used to perform replication operations to/from the remote system. If 0 is returned, the function completed successfully and no ConcreteJob instance created. If 4096/0x1000 is returned, a ConcreteJob is started, a reference to which is returned in the Job output parameter. Once the job completes, examine the AffectedJobElement associations for the created instance of RemoteReplicationCollection.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

CreateSynchronizationAspect

Create (or start a job to create) a new point-in-time representation of a source element. This representation may be of a form of pointers that keep track of data at the time the point-in-time was created, or a series checkpoints that capture the view of data on the source elements at the time of point-in-time. This method does not include a target element, however, a target element can be added subsequently using the ModifySettingsDefineState method. If the method executes successfully, a SettingsDefineState association is created between the source element and the SynchronizationAspect, which will have the datetime of the point-in-time.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

GetAvailableTargetElements

Get (or start a job to get) all of the candidate target elements for the supplied source element. If a job is started, once the job completes, examine the AffectedJobElement associations for candidate targets.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

GetReplicationRelationshipInstances

Get (or start a job to get) all of the synchronization relationships known to the processing replication service. If a job is started, once the job completes, examine the AffectedJobElement associations for the synchronization relationships. This method is similar to GetReplicationRelationships, except that this method returns the instances as opposed to object paths.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

GetReplicationRelationships

Get (or start a job to get) all of the synchronization relationships known to the processing replication service. If a job is started, once the job completes, examine the AffectedJobElement associations for the synchronization relationships.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

GetServiceAccessPoints

Get (or start a job to get) ServiceAccessPoints associated with a peer system. If a job is started, once the job completes, examine the AffectedJobElement associations for the peer system's ServiceAccessPoints.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

ModifyListSettingsDefineState

Modify (or start a job to modify) a list of SettingsDefineState associations. These associations are between the storage objects and SynchronizationAspect. The modification could range from introducing the target elements, which creates a new StorageSynchronized association to dissolving the SettingsDefineState association. If 0 is returned, the function completed successfully and no ConcreteJob instance was created. If 4096/0x1000 is returned, a ConcreteJob was started and a reference to this Job is returned in the Job output parameter. A return value of 1 indicates the method is not supported. All other values indicate some type of error condition.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

ModifyListSynchronization

Modify (or start a job to modify) an array of synchronization associations between two storage objects or replication groups. If 0 is returned, the function completed successfully and no ConcreteJob instance was created. If 4096 is returned, a ConcreteJob was started and a reference to this Job is returned in the Job output parameter. A return value of 1 indicates the method is not supported. All other values indicate some type of error condition.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

ModifyReplicaSynchronization

Modify (or start a job to modify) the synchronization association between two storage objects or replication groups. If 0 is returned, the function completed successfully and no ConcreteJob instance was created. If 0x1000 is returned, a ConcreteJob was started and a reference to this Job is returned in the Job output parameter. A return value of 1 indicates the method is not supported. All other values indicate some type of error condition.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

ModifySettingsDefineState

Modify (or start a job to modify) the SettingsDefineState association between the storage objects and SynchronizationAspect. The modification could range from introducing the target elements, which creates a new StorageSynchronized association to dissolving the SettingsDefineState association. If 0 is returned, the function completed successfully and no ConcreteJob instance was created. If 4096/0x1000 is returned, a ConcreteJob was started and a reference to this Job is returned in the Job output parameter. A return value of 1 indicates the method is not supported. All other values indicate some type of error condition.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

RemoveFromRemoteReplicationCollection

Remove (or start a job to remove) service access points (i.e. ProtocolEndpoints) and/or remote systems associations from an existing instance of RemoteReplicationCollection.If 0 is returned, the function completed successfully and no ConcreteJob instance created. If 4096/0x1000 is returned, a ConcreteJob is started, a reference to which is returned in the Job output parameter. If parameter AccessPoints is NULL, then only the remote ComputerSystem is removed for the existing AccessPoints associated to the RemoteReplicationCollection. If ComputerSystem is NULL, then only AccessPoints are removed from the existing remote ComputerSystems known to the RemoteReplicationCollection.

This method is inherited from CIM_ReplicationService.

EnabledState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_EnabledLogicalElement.OtherEnabledState")

EnabledState is an integer enumeration that indicates the enabled and disabled states of an element. It can also indicate the transitions between these requested states. For example, shutting down (value=4) and starting (value=10) are transient states between enabled and disabled. The following text briefly summarizes the various enabled and disabled states: Enabled (2) indicates that the element is or could be executing commands, will process any queued commands, and queues new requests. Disabled (3) indicates that the element will not execute commands and will drop any new requests. Shutting Down (4) indicates that the element is in the process of going to a Disabled state. Not Applicable (5) indicates the element does not support being enabled or disabled. Enabled but Offline (6) indicates that the element might be completing commands, and will drop any new requests. Test (7) indicates that the element is in a test state. Deferred (8) indicates that the element might be completing commands, but will queue any new requests. Quiesce (9) indicates that the element is enabled but in a restricted mode. Starting (10) indicates that the element is in the process of going to an Enabled state. New requests are queued.

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.

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key, Override ("Name"), MaxLen (256)

The Name property uniquely identifies the Service and provides an indication of the functionality that is managed. This functionality is described in more detail in the Description property of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

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
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_EnabledLogicalElement.EnabledState")

A string that describes the enabled or disabled state of the element when the EnabledState property is set to 1 ("Other"). This property must be set to null when EnabledState is any value other than 1.

This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement.

PrimaryOwnerContact
Data type: string
Access type: Read/write
Qualifiers: MaxLen (256), MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|General Information|001.4")

A string that provides information on how the primary owner of the Service can be reached (for example, phone number, e-mail address, and so on).

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

PrimaryOwnerName
Data type: string
Access type: Read/write
Qualifiers: MaxLen (64), MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|General Information|001.3")

The name of the primary owner for the service, if one is defined. The primary owner is the initial support contact for the Service.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

RequestedState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_EnabledLogicalElement.EnabledState")

RequestedState is an integer enumeration that indicates the last requested or desired state for the element. The actual state of the element is represented by EnabledState. This property is provided to compare the last requested and current enabled or disabled states. Note that when EnabledState is set to 5 ("Not Applicable"), then this property has no meaning. By default, the RequestedState of the element is 5 ("No Change"). Refer to the EnabledState property description for explanations of the values in the RequestedState enumeration. Offline (6) indicates that the element has been requested to transition to the Enabled but Offline EnabledState. It should be noted that there are two new values in RequestedState that build on the statuses of EnabledState. These are "Reboot" (10) and "Reset" (11). Reboot refers to doing a "Shut Down" and then moving to an "Enabled" state. Reset indicates that the element is first "Disabled" and then "Enabled". The distinction between requesting "Shut Down" and "Disabled" should also be noted. Shut Down requests an orderly transition to the Disabled state, and might involve removing power, to completely erase any existing state. The Disabled state requests an immediate disabling of the element, such that it will not execute or accept any commands or processing requests. This property is set as the result of a method invocation (such as Start or StopService on CIM_Service), or can be overridden and defined as WRITEable in a subclass. The method approach is considered superior to a WRITEable property, because it allows an explicit invocation of the operation and the return of a result code. A particular instance of EnabledLogicalElement might not support RequestedStateChange. If this occurs, the value 12 ("Not Applicable") is used.

This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement.

Started
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

Started is a Boolean that indicates whether the Service has been started (TRUE), or stopped (FALSE).

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

StartMode
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated ("CIM_Service.EnabledDefault"), MaxLen (10)

Note: The use of this element is deprecated in lieu of the EnabledDefault property that is inherited from EnabledLogicalElement. The EnabledLogicalElement addresses the same semantics. The change to a uint16 data type was discussed when CIM V2.0 was defined. However, existing V1.0 implementations used the string property. To remain compatible with those implementations, StartMode was grandfathered into the schema. Use of the deprecated qualifier allows the maintenance of the existing property but also permits an improved, clarified definition using EnabledDefault. Deprecated description: StartMode is a string value that indicates whether the Service is automatically started by a System, an Operating System, and so on, or is started only upon request.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

("Automatic")

("Manual")

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.

SystemCreationClassName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key, Propagated ("CIM_System.CreationClassName"), MaxLen (256)

The CreationClassName of the scoping System.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

TimeOfLastStateChange
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only

The date or time when the EnabledState of the element last changed. If the state of the element has not changed and this property is populated, then it must be set to a 0 interval value. If a state change was requested, but rejected or not yet processed, the property must not be updated.
