4.5. CIM status codes

This section defines constants for two areas:

  • CIM status codes (the CIM_ERR_* symbols). They are for example stored in CIMError exceptions.
  • Other constants.

Note: For tooling reasons, the constants are shown in the namespace pywbem._cim_constants. However, they are also available in the pywbem namespace and should be used from there.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_FAILED = 1

A general error occurred that is not covered by a more specific error code.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_ACCESS_DENIED = 2

Access to a CIM resource is not available to the client.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_INVALID_NAMESPACE = 3

The target namespace does not exist.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_INVALID_PARAMETER = 4

One or more parameter values passed to the method are not valid.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_INVALID_CLASS = 5

The specified class does not exist.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_NOT_FOUND = 6

The requested object cannot be found. The operation can be unsupported on behalf of the WBEM server in general or on behalf of an implementation of a management profile.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_NOT_SUPPORTED = 7

The requested operation is not supported on behalf of the WBEM server, or on behalf of a provided class. If the operation is supported for a provided class but is not supported for particular instances of that class, then CIM_ERR_FAILED shall be used.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_CLASS_HAS_CHILDREN = 8

The operation cannot be invoked on this class because it has subclasses.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_CLASS_HAS_INSTANCES = 9

The operation cannot be invoked on this class because one or more instances of this class exist.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_INVALID_SUPERCLASS = 10

The operation cannot be invoked because the specified superclass does not exist.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_ALREADY_EXISTS = 11

The operation cannot be invoked because an object already exists.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_NO_SUCH_PROPERTY = 12

The specified property does not exist.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_TYPE_MISMATCH = 13

The value supplied is not compatible with the type.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_QUERY_LANGUAGE_NOT_SUPPORTED = 14

The query language is not recognized or supported.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_INVALID_QUERY = 15

The query is not valid for the specified query language.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_METHOD_NOT_AVAILABLE = 16

The extrinsic method cannot be invoked.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_METHOD_NOT_FOUND = 17

The specified extrinsic method does not exist.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_NAMESPACE_NOT_EMPTY = 20

The specified namespace is not empty. New in pywbem 0.9.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_INVALID_ENUMERATION_CONTEXT = 21

The enumeration identified by the specified context cannot be found, is in a closed state, does not exist, or is otherwise invalid. New in pywbem 0.9.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_INVALID_OPERATION_TIMEOUT = 22

The specified operation timeout is not supported by the WBEM server. New in pywbem 0.9.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_PULL_HAS_BEEN_ABANDONED = 23

The pull operation has been abandoned due to execution of a concurrent CloseEnumeration operation on the same enumeration. New in pywbem 0.9.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_PULL_CANNOT_BE_ABANDONED = 24

The attempt to abandon a concurrent pull operation on the same enumeration failed. The concurrent pull operation proceeds normally. New in pywbem 0.9.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_SERVER_LIMITS_EXCEEDED = 27

The WBEM server has failed the operation based upon exceeding server limits. New in pywbem 0.9.

pywbem._cim_constants.CIM_ERR_SERVER_IS_SHUTTING_DOWN = 28

The WBEM server is shutting down and cannot process the operation. New in pywbem 0.9.

pywbem._cim_constants.DEFAULT_NAMESPACE = 'root/cimv2'

Default CIM namespace for WBEM connection

pywbem._cim_constants.DEFAULT_URL_SCHEME = 'http'

Default URL scheme for WBEM connection New in pywbem 1.0.

pywbem._cim_constants.DEFAULT_URL_PORT_HTTP = 5988

Default port number for http WBEM connection New in pywbem 1.0.

pywbem._cim_constants.DEFAULT_URL_PORT_HTTPS = 5989

Default port number for https WBEM connection New in pywbem 1.0.
