- The value of the requested information
- A return code indicating that the attribute name was not recognized
This is a passive function, meaning that an Access Module can only accumulate and maintain the value of the requested information. It can only send a value to a client utility in response to a specific request. If, for example, an Access Module needs to provide a client utility with a value of several attributes that describe its state of operation, the Access Module cannot actively send this information to the client utility. Instead, the Access Module must wait for a utility to request the information with a Get Attribute request before it responds with the value for the requested attribute.
