Hi,

Rick raised this good question the other day:

  How do we defend our reference to ifIndex in the 
  Description of CIM_PrintChannel.InterfaceId?


Our answer to the CIM Core WG:

  We note that this property is auxiliary information
  that is only meaningful if MIB-II is mapped into
  the CIM-OM (normally the case, if SNMP is enabled
  in the network).

  We note their precedent in CIM_SNMPTrapIndication
  (CIM standard mapping of SNMPv1 Traps), where the 
  property GenericTrap specifically depends on ifIndex
  for interpretation of 'Link Down' and 'Link Up'.

Cheers,
- Ira
