class CIM_OpaqueManagementData
extends CIM_StorageExtent

General Information:
A class derived from StorageExtent that describes opaque management data in managed systems. The structure and semantics of opaque management data, which may be standardized or proprietary, are assumed to be known by at least one management client, but need not be known by the CIM server. The UntransformedDataFormat property identifies the structure and semantics of the data.
Opaque management data are typically stored in non-volatile memory that is accessible to the server. Management clients are able to read and write opaque data, to manage their lifetime, and to configure the access rights associated with them. The non-volatile storage is often used as a mailbox, with local management agents producing data for consumption by remote management clients, or vice versa.
This class is not intended as a general-purpose opaque alternative to any existing or planned CIM classes. It is expressly intended for the mailbox usage model described above.
