Deprecated As Of Version: 5.11
Reason: This entity has been deprecated because the ip_directed_broadcast_command has been updated to support a boolean value and this entity can be represented with a value of 'false'.
The version test is used to check the version of the IOS operating system. It extends the standard TestType as defined in the oval-definitions-schema and one should refer to the TestType description for more information. The required object element references a version_object and the optional state element specifies the data to check.
The version_object element is used by a version test to define the different version information associated with an IOS system. There is actually only one object relating to version and this is the system as a whole. Therefore, there are no child entities defined. Any OVAL Test written to check version will reference the same version_object which is basically an empty object element.
The version_state element defines the version information held within a Cisco IOS Train. A Cisco IOS train is a vehicle for delivering releases that evolve from a common code base.
The EntityStateTrainIdentifierType complex type restricts a string value to a specific set of values. These values describe the possible types of trains in a Cisco IOS release. The empty string is also allowed to support empty element associated with variable references. Note that when using pattern matches and variables care must be taken to ensure that the regular expression and variable values align with the enumerated values.
