Data Object Description

Properties of the ServiceInstance class. The ServiceInstance does not have directly-accessible properties because reading the properties of a managed object requires the help of a property collector, and the property collector itself is a property of the ServiceInstance. For this reason, the ServiceInstanceContent is retrieved via an explicit method: ServiceInstance::RetrieveContent.
