Class CIM_SettingContext

This relationship associates Configuration objects with Setting objects. For example, a NetworkAdapter's Settings could change based on the site/network to which its hosting ComputerSystem is attached. In this case, the ComputerSystem would have two different Configuration objects, corresponding to the differences in network configuration for the two network segments. Configuration A would aggregate a Setting object for the NetworkAdapter when operating on segment "ANet", whereas Configuration B would aggregate a different NetworkAdapter Setting object, specific to segment "BNet". Note that many Settings of the computer are independent of the network Configuration. For example, both Configurations A and B would aggregate the same Setting object for the ComputerSystem's MonitorResolution.
