STOR_DEVICE_CAPABILITIES structure (srb.h)

The STOR_DEVICE_CAPABILITIES structure reports device capabilities to the Storport driver in response to a capabilities query in a SCSI request block (SRB) with a function of SRB_FUNCTION_PNP. STOR_DEVICE_CAPABILITIES is a subset of the DEVICE_CAPABILITIES structure containing the members relevant to storage devices.

Syntax

typedef struct _STOR_DEVICE_CAPABILITIES {
  USHORT Version;
  ULONG  DeviceD1 : 1;
  ULONG  DeviceD2 : 1;
  ULONG  LockSupported : 1;
  ULONG  EjectSupported : 1;
  ULONG  Removable : 1;
  ULONG  DockDevice : 1;
  ULONG  UniqueID : 1;
  ULONG  SilentInstall : 1;
  ULONG  SurpriseRemovalOK : 1;
  ULONG  NoDisplayInUI : 1;
} STOR_DEVICE_CAPABILITIES, *PSTOR_DEVICE_CAPABILITIES;

Members

Version

Specifies the version of the structure. Set to STOR_DEVICE_CAPABILITIES_EX_VERSION_1 by Storport.

DeviceD1

Specifies whether the device hardware supports the D1 power state. Miniport drivers set this bit to 0.

DeviceD2

Specifies whether the device hardware supports the D2 power state. Miniport drivers set this bit to 0.

LockSupported

Specifies whether the device supports physical-device locking that prevents device ejection. This member pertains to ejecting a LUN or a unit device.

EjectSupported

Specifies whether the device supports software-controlled device ejection while the system is in the PowerSystemWorking state. This member pertains to ejecting a LUN or unit device.

Removable

DockDevice

Specifies whether the device is a docking peripheral.

UniqueID

Specifies whether the device's instance ID is unique system-wide. This bit is clear if the instance ID is unique only within the scope of the bus.

SilentInstall

Specifies whether Device Manager should suppress all installation dialog boxes; except required dialog boxes such as "no compatible drivers found."

SurpriseRemovalOK

Specifies whether the miniport driver for the device can handle the case where the device is removed before Storport can send SRB_FUNCTION_PNP with StorRemoveDevice as the PnPAction in the SCSI_PNP_REQUEST_BLOCK structure. If SurpriseRemovalOK is set to TRUE, the device can be safely removed from its immediate parent regardless of the state that its driver is in.

NoDisplayInUI

Do not display the device in the user interface. If this bit is set, the device is never displayed in the user interface, even if the device is present but fails to start. Miniport drivers do not set this bit.

Remarks

When a miniport driver receives an SRB in its HwStorStartIo routine where the SRB function is SRB_FUNCTION_PNP, the SRB is formatted as a SCSI_PNP_REQUEST_BLOCK structure. If the PnPAction member of the SRB is StorQueryCapabilities, the miniport can return a STOR_DEVICE_CAPABILITIES structure in the DataBuffer member of the SRB.

Storport sends this structure to the miniport with all members initialized to 0. On return, only the Removable field is used from this structure.

Starting with Windows 8, miniports should use the STOR_DEVICE_CAPABILITIES_EX structure to indicate support for additional capabilities.
