BindiSCSIProtocolEndPoint method of the MSISCSITARGET_iSCSIConfigurationService class

Modifies an existing MSISCSITARGET_iSCSIProtocolEndpoint instance by associating a Target Network Port or an Initiator Network Port to the MSISCSITARGET_iSCSIProtocolEndpoint instance. The association is persisted as a CIM_BindsTo instance.

This action is intended to be reversed by the use of the intrinsic CimSession.DeleteInstance method.

This method is inherited from the CIM_iSCSIConfigurationService class.


uint32 BindiSCSIProtocolEndPoint(
  [in] CIM_iSCSIProtocolEndpoint Ref iSCSIPort,
  [in] CIM_ProtocolEndpoint Ref      NetworkPortal


iSCSIPort [in]

Specifies the iSCSI protocol endpoint to modify.

NetworkPortal [in]

Specifies the protocol endpoint instance to associate.

An iSCSI Initiator Port is represented by a CIM_IPProtocolEndpoint instance. An iSCSI Target Port is represented by a CIM_TCPProtocolEndpoint instance.

The selected endpoint must be from the same portal group, that is a system specific collection, as the endpoints that are currently bound to the MSISCSITARGET_iSCSIProtocolEndpoint instance.
