In this WMI class, all WMI properties are read-only. You can only read values but not change them.

The IdleTime property indicates the number of seconds that the session has been idle.


Data type DateTime

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.

Data type String

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.

'OK','Error','Degraded','Unknown','Pred Fail','Starting','Stopping','Service','Stressed','NonRecover','No Contact','Lost Comm'


Data type String

The TransportName property specifies the name of the transport that the client is using to communicate with the server
