Of particular interest to MFD WG, WIMS-CIM WG, and SM WG
members, but important for all PWG projects:
See the very broad Scope section excerpted below.
MFD Scan Service and other PWG protocols should cohere with
these generic operations for all management protocols, to
facilitate future mappings, to CIM, WS-Management and WSDM.
This DMTF draft is out for comments until 6 December 2007.

[excerpt from DSP0223]
WBEM is a set of DMTF standards that define how CIM modeled resources can be discovered, accessed and manipulated. WBEM defines a number of client protocols for this purpose:
· CIM-XML: The CIM-XML protocol, defined in the CIM Operations over HTTP Specification [DSP0200] and the Representation of CIM in XML Specification [DSP0201].
· WS-Man/CIM: The usage of the WS-Management protocol for CIM, defined in the WS-Management CIM Binding Specification [DSP0227], the WS-CIM Mapping Specification [DSP0230], the Web Services for Management Specification [DSP0226], and other underlying Web Services specifications.
· WSDM/CIM: The usage of the WSDM protocol for CIM, defined in the WSDM CIM Mapping Specification [DSP0233], the WS-CIM Mapping Specification [DSP0230], and other underlying Web Services specifications.
· SM-CLP: The SM-CLP protocol, defined in the Server Management Command Line Protocol Specification [DSP0214], covering the core of the protocol common for all management profiles, and SM-CLP mapping specifications for each management profile, covering profile specific aspects of the protocol such as verbs for extrinsic methods.
As different as these protocols are, they have certain operations and semantics in common, at least when looking at it from a higher level. These common semantics can be used to define generic operations. This
specification defines the model and behavior associated to these operations at a generic level, and common across the WBEM protocols.
