CIM Schema: Version 2.18.1

The CIM V2.18.1 Release Notes describe the changes that have been incorporated into this release, as well as instructions for installing the Schema. We recommend that you review this document first.

As part of CIM 2.18.1, a number of enhancements and additions are introduced throughout the Schema, including ongoing improvements to support product and alliance partners and to support DMTF Profiles and Management Initiatives. Examples include updates to BIOS, printers, standard messages, operating system state, modern power management paradigms, virtualization and security. In addition, it should be noted that this latest CIM Schema is the first completely automated build for DMTF. All of the change requests for the CIM 2.18.1 were applied programmatically, instead of by hand. Contributions to the CIM schema have been made possible through the DMTF Alliance Partnerships with the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) and the Open Grid Forum (OGF).

Please keep in mind that Experimental elements may change in a backward incompatible way.
