Workgroup Description

Management Problem(s) and Environment

The system management domain has a need for a general SOAP-based protocol for managing computers systems (e.g., personal computers, workstations, servers, smart devices). This system management protocol needs to support web services and allow constellations of computer systems and network based services to collaborate seamlessly.

The need is to provide interoperability between management applications and managed resources; identify a core set of web service specifications and usage requirements that expose a common set of operations central to all systems management. Management clients need to be able to execute specific management methods with strongly typed input and output parameters.

CIM-based management in a Web services environment requires that the CIM Schema (classes, properties and methods) be rendered in XML structures that support XML instance documents, XML Schema, and WSDL (the Web Services Description Language). To achieve this, CIM’s definitive MOF (the Managed Object Format) must be mapped to XML structures via an explicit algorithm that can be programmed for automatic translation.
