When an application connects to the CIMOM, the application must also connect to a namespace, where all subsequent operations occur. A namespace is a directory-like structure that contains classes, instances, and qualifier types. The names of all objects within a namespace must be unique. When you install the Solaris WBEM SDK, four namespaces are created:
root\snmp– Contains the SNMP adapter classes.
root\system– Contains the classes that manage the CIM Object Manager.
