Managing Solaris Volume Manager


Managing Solaris Volume Manager

The Solaris Volume Manager CIM/WBEM Application Programming Interface (API) provides a public, standards-based programmatic interface to observe and configure Solaris Volume Manager. This API is based on the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) Common Information Model (CIM). For more information about DMTF, see

CIM defines the data model, referred to as the “schema“ which describes the following:

This model is made available through the Solaris Web Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) SDK. The WBEM SDK is a set of Java technology-based API's that allow access to system management capabilities that are represented by CIM.

For more information about the CIM/WBEM SDK, see the Solaris WBEM Developer’s Guide.
