WMI Repository Availability and Integrity

Updated: August 5, 2011

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The WMI repository is the Windows implementation of the CIM Repository as defined by the Deskop Management Task Force (DMTF). It is a database managed by the WMI Service that stores WMI class and instance information. Static classes with static instances store class definitions and instances in the WMI repository. Static classes with dynamic instances store only the definitions. Dynamic classes store neither the class definitions nor the instances. Dynamic information is supplied on-demand by a WMI provider.
