VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION enumeration (vds.h)

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Defines the set of valid subsystem maintenance operations.

Syntax

typedef enum _VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION {
  BlinkLight,
  BeepAlarm,
  SpinDown,
  SpinUp,
  Ping
} VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION;

Constants

 
BlinkLight
Blinks a light on a drive.
BeepAlarm
Beeps an alarm on a drive.
SpinDown
Slows the spinning of a drive such that the drive enters an idle state. Typically used for the purpose of saving power.
SpinUp
Starts the spinning of a drive in preparation for data reads.
Ping
Pings a drive.

Remarks

The IVdsMaintenance::StartMaintenance, IVdsMaintenance::StopMaintenance, and IVdsMaintenance::PulseMaintenance methods pass a VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION value as an argument to specify operation details.

Note  Additional constants might be added to the VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION enumeration in future Windows versions. For this reason, your application must be designed to gracefully handle an unrecognized VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION enumeration constant.
