Detailed description of Win32_PhysicalMedia properties

Derived properties (23) of Win32_PhysicalMedia class

Capacity property

OtherIdentifyingInfo property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'OtherIdentifyingInfo captures additional data, beyond asset tag information, that could be used to identify a physical element. One example is bar code data associated with an element that also has an asset tag. Note that if only bar code data is available and is unique/able to be used as an element key, this property would be NULL and the bar code data used as the class key, in the tag property.'

CIMTYPE'string'
Description'The Status property is a string indicating the current status of the object. Various operational and non-operational statuses can be defined. Operational statuses are "OK", "Degraded" and "Pred Fail". "Pred Fail" indicates that an element may be functioning properly but predicting a failure in the near future. An example is a SMART-enabled hard drive. Non-operational statuses can also be specified. These are "Error", "Starting", "Stopping" and "Service". The latter, "Service", could apply during mirror-resilvering of a disk, reload of a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is on-line, yet the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states.'
MaxLen10
readTrue
