A root node is the topmost Configuration Manager console node that represents a feature, for example, Collections or Packages. Configuration Manager defines a child node, for example OS Images, as a static node that appears under a root node. A relative node is a special type of child node that the framework duplicates for each child node under which it is configured. For example, the Packages root node has a number of relative nodes, such as access accounts and programs.

For an example of XML for a root node, see How to Create Node XML for a Configuration Manager Console View.
