Upgrading a Resource Type

  • Default settings of resource type properties might change.

  • New extension properties of the resource type might be introduced.

  • Existing extension properties of the resource type might be withdrawn.

  • The set of standard properties that are declared for the resource type might change.

  • The attributes of resource properties such as min, max, arraymin, arraymax, default, and tunability might change.

  • The set of declared methods might differ.

  • The implementation of methods or the fault monitor might change.
