StructureSize (2 bytes): The client MUST set this field to 33, indicating the size of the request structure, not including the header. The client MUST set this field to this value regardless of how long Buffer[] actually is in the request being sent.

InfoType (1 byte): The type of information being set. The valid values are as follows.

Value

Meaning

SMB2_0_INFO_FILE

0x01

The file information is being set.

SMB2_0_INFO_FILESYSTEM

0x02

The underlying object store information is being set.

SMB2_0_INFO_SECURITY

0x03

The security information is being set.

SMB2_0_INFO_QUOTA

0x04

The underlying object store quota information is being set.

FileInfoClass (1 byte): For setting file information, this field MUST contain one of the following FILE_INFORMATION_CLASS values, as specified in section 3.3.5.21.1 and [MS-FSCC] section 2.4:

  • FileAllocationInformation

  • FileBasicInformation

  • FileDispositionInformation

  • FileEndOfFileInformation

  • FileFullEaInformation

  • FileLinkInformation

  • FileModeInformation

  • FilePipeInformation

  • FilePositionInformation

  • FileRenameInformation

  • FileShortNameInformation

  • FileValidDataLengthInformation

For setting underlying object store information, this field MUST contain one of the following FS_INFORMATION_CLASS values, as specified in [MS-FSCC] section 2.5:

  • FileFsControlInformation

  • ¬†FileFsObjectIdInformation

For setting quota and security information, this field MUST be 0.

BufferLength (4 bytes): The length, in bytes, of the information to be set.

BufferOffset (2 bytes): The offset, in bytes, from the beginning of the SMB2 header to the information to be set.<76>

Reserved (2 bytes): This field MUST NOT be used and MUST be reserved. The client MUST set this field to 0, and the server MUST ignore it on receipt.

AdditionalInformation (4 bytes): Provides additional information to the server.

If security information is being set, this value MUST contain a 4-byte bit field of flags indicating what security attributes MUST be applied. For more information about security descriptors, see [MS-DTYP] section 2.4.6.
