  HANDLE      hSession,
  LPNTMS_GUID lpObjectId,
  DWORD       dwType,
  LPCSTR      lpAttributeName,
  LPVOID      lpAttributeData,
  DWORD       dwAttributeSize
);

Parameters

hSession

Handle to the session returned by the OpenNtmsSession function.

lpObjectId

dwType

RSM object type. For a list of object types, see NtmsObjectsTypes.

lpAttributeName

Return Value

This function returns one of the following values.

Value Meaning
ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED
NTMS_MODIFY_ACCESS is denied to the object or no modifications are allowed for the specified object type (see Remarks). Other security errors are also possible, but they would indicate a security subsystem error.

Windows XP:  No access rights are required.

ERROR_DATABASE_FAILURE
The database update failed.
ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE
The value specified in the hSession parameter is NULL or is not valid.
ERROR_INVALID_NAME
The name or attribute is not valid. The NTMS_MAXATTR_NAMELEN value defines the maximum attribute name length. The length includes a NULL.
ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER
The pointer is NULL or is not valid.
ERROR_NO_DATA
The attribute specified is greater than or equal to NTMS_MAXATTR_LENGTH.
ERROR_NOT_CONNECTED
Unable to connect to the RSM service.
ERROR_OBJECT_NOT_FOUND
The GUID is not valid.
ERROR_SUCCESS
The function was successful.

Remarks

The SetNtmsObjectAttribute function must be executed on the specified RSM server. Because the buffer of bytes is unmarshaled between systems of different architectures, remote execution of this function can result in unpredictable results.

To delete an attribute, perform a set of the attribute with a length of zero.
