DriveCmdletProvider.InitializeDefaultDrives DriveCmdletProvider.InitializeDefaultDrives DriveCmdletProvider.InitializeDefaultDrives Method

Definition

Gives the provider the ability to map drives after initialization.

protected virtual System.Collections.ObjectModel.Collection<System.Management.Automation.PSDriveInfo> InitializeDefaultDrives ();
abstract member InitializeDefaultDrives : unit -> System.Collections.ObjectModel.Collection<System.Management.Automation.PSDriveInfo>
override this.InitializeDefaultDrives : unit -> System.Collections.ObjectModel.Collection<System.Management.Automation.PSDriveInfo>
Protected Overridable Function InitializeDefaultDrives () As Collection(Of PSDriveInfo)
Returns

A collection of the drives the provider wants to be added to the session upon initialization.

         The default implementation returns an empty <xref href="System.Management.Automation.PSDriveInfo"></xref> collection.

Remarks

 After the Start method is called on a provider, the InitializeDefaultDrives
 method is called. This is an opportunity for the provider to
 mount drives that are important to it. For instance, the Active Directory
 provider might mount a drive for the defaultNamingContext if the
 machine is joined to a domain.

 All providers should mount a root drive to help the user with discoverability.
 This root drive might contain a listing of a set of locations that would be
 interesting as roots for other mounted drives. For instance, the Active
 Directory provider my create a drive that lists the naming contexts found
 in the namingContext attributes on the RootDSE. This will help users
 discover interesting mount points for other drives.
