Configuration Database WMI Provider
The configuration database of Microsoft® Provisioning Framework (MPF) uses Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) as an underlying database framework. The Configuration Database WMI Provider exposes classes and instances in the configuration database. This provider is useful for purposes such as the following.
- A developer writing a namespace wants to test the namespace using different procedure settings (for example, enable/disable performance counters or with/without a credential). The developer writes a short Windows Script Host script that automatically changes various settings.
- A system administrator wants to transfer namespaces from a test MPF system to a production environment. Instead of doing this manually from Provisioning Manager, the administrator writes a single script that transfers the namespaces automatically.
The file containing the WMI class definitions for the configuration database is maps.mof, located in the \Microsoft Provisioning\Tools\Admin directory of the installed MPF. For more information, see the WMI Class Reference and WMI Code Samples.
