This reference guide documents the OpenManage Server Administrator Common Information Model (CIM) provider contained in the Management Object File (MOF) dccim32.mof.
CIM provides a conceptual model for describing manageable objects in a systems management environment. CIM is a modeling tool rather than a programming language. CIM provides the structure for organizing objects into a model of a managed environment. For modeling a managed environment, CIM makes available a set of abstract and concrete classes of objects. These classes model the basic characteristics of systems, networks, and applications, as well as groupings of management-related data.
For more information about CIM, see the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) website at dmtf.org and the Microsoft website at microsoft.com.
