Description

SoftwareIdentity provides descriptive information about a software component for asset tracking and/or installation dependency management. When the IsEntity property has the value TRUE, the instance of SoftwareIdentity represents an individually identifiable entity similar to Physical Element. SoftwareIdentity does NOT indicate whether the software is installed, executing, etc. This extra information may be provided through specialized associations to Software Identity. For instance, both InstalledSoftwareIdentity and ElementSoftwareIdentity may be used to indicate that the software identified by this class is installed. SoftwareIdentity is used when managing the software components of a ManagedElement that is management focus. Since software may be acquired, SoftwareIdentity can be associated with a Product using the ProductSoftwareComponent relationship. The Application Model manages the deployment and installation of software via the classes, SoftwareFeatures and SoftwareElements. SoftwareFeature and SoftwareElement are used when the software component is the management focus. The deployment/installation concepts are related to the asset/identity one. In fact, a SoftwareIdentity may correspond to a Product, or to one or more SoftwareFeatures or SoftwareElements - depending on the granularity of these classes and the deployment model. The correspondence of Software Identity to Product, SoftwareFeature or SoftwareElement is indicated using the ConcreteIdentity association. Note that there may not be sufficient detail or instrumentation to instantiate ConcreteIdentity. And, if the association is instantiated, some duplication of information may result. For example, the Vendor described in the instances of Product and SoftwareIdentity MAY be the same. However, this is not necessarily true, and it is why vendor and similar information are duplicated in this class. Note that ConcreteIdentity can also be used to describe the relationship of the software to any LogicalFiles that result from installing it. As above, there may not be sufficient detail or instrumentation to instantiate this association.

Detailed description of CIM_SoftwareIdentity properties

Local properties (13) of CIM_SoftwareIdentity class

BuildNumber property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'The build number of the software.'
BuildNumber property is in 2 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\storage\iscsitarget and in 10 namespaces
ClassificationDescriptions property
ArrayType'Indexed'
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'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.'
ModelCorrespondence['CIM_SoftwareIdentity.Classifications']
ClassificationDescriptions property is in 2 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\storage\iscsitarget and in 1 namespace
Classifications property
ArrayType'Indexed'
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'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.'

ValueMap['0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', '10', '11', '12', '13', '..', '0x8000..0xFFFF']
Values['Unknown', 'Other', 'Driver', 'Configuration Software', 'Application Software', 'Instrumentation', 'Firmware/BIOS', 'Diagnostic Software', 'Operating System', 'Middleware', 'Firmware', 'BIOS/FCode', 'Support/Service Pack', 'Software Bundle', 'DMTF Reserved', 'Vendor Reserved']
Classifications property is in 2 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\storage\iscsitarget and in 1 namespace
InstanceID property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'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:
:
Where and are separated by a colon ':', and where 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 _ structure of Schema class names.) In addition, to ensure uniqueness MUST NOT contain a colon (':'). When using this algorithm, the first colon to appear in InstanceID MUST appear between and .
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 set to 'CIM'.'
keyTrue
InstanceID property is in 40 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\storage\iscsitarget and in 21 namespaces

Languages property is in 2 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\storage\iscsitarget and in 2 namespaces
MajorVersion property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'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.'

VersionString property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'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.'
