The Win32_OnBoardDevice class represents common adapter devices built into the motherboard (system board).
Namespace value is root/CIMV2.
WMI Provider value is CIMWin32.
The Caption property is a short textual description (one-line string) of the object.
CreationClassName indicates the name of the class or the subclass used in the creation of an instance. When used with the other key properties of this class, this property allows all instances of this class and its subclasses to be uniquely identified.
The Description property describes the on-board device and is filled by the manufacturer of the device.
The DeviceType property indicates the type of device being represented.
The Enabled property indicates whether or not the on-board device is available for use.
Values: TRUE or FALSE. A value of TRUE indicates the device is enabled for use.
A physical component can be hot swapped if it is possible to replace the element with a physically different but equivalent one while the containing package has power applied to it (i.e., is 'on'). For example, a fan component may be designed to be hot swapped. All components that can be hot swapped are inherently removable and replaceable .
The InstallDate property is datetime value indicating when the object was installed. A lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.
The name of the organization responsible for producing the physical element. This may be the entity from whom the element is purchased, but this is not necessarily true. The latter information is contained in the Vendor property of CIM_Product.
The name by which the physical element is generally known.
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.
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.
The part number assigned by the organization responsible for producing or manufacturing the physical element.
Boolean indicating that the physical element is powered on (TRUE), or is currently off (FALSE).
A physical component is removable if it is designed to be taken in and out of the physical container in which it is normally found, without impairing the function of the overall packaging. A component can still be removable if power must be 'off' in order to perform the removal. If power can be 'on' and the component removed, then the element is removable and can be hot swapped. For example, an upgradeable processor chip is removable.
A physical component is replaceable if it is possible to replace (FRU or upgrade) the element with a physically different one. For example, some computer systems allow the main processor chip to be upgraded to one of a higher clock rating. In this case, the processor is said to be replaceable . All removable components are inherently replaceable .
A manufacturer-allocated number used to identify the PhysicalElement.
The stock keeping unit number for this physical element.
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.
The Tag property uniquely identifies the on-board device connected to the system.
Example: On Board Device 1
A string indicating the version of the physical element.
