IVdsHwProvider::QuerySubSystems method (vdshwprv.h)

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Returns an enumeration of the subsystems managed by the provider.

Syntax

HRESULT QuerySubSystems(
  IEnumVdsObject **ppEnum
);

Parameters

ppEnum

The address of an IEnumVdsObject interface pointer that can be used to enumerate the subsystems as subsystem objects. For more information, see Working with Enumeration Objects. Callers must release the interface and each of the subsystem objects when they are no longer needed by calling the IUnknown::Release method.

Return value

This method can return standard HRESULT values, such as E_INVALIDARG or E_OUTOFMEMORY, and VDS-specific return values. It can also return converted system error codes using the HRESULT_FROM_WIN32 macro. Errors can originate from VDS itself or from the underlying VDS provider that is being used. Possible return values include the following.

Return code/value Description
S_OK
Returns the enumeration of subsystem identifiers. If the provider manages no subsystems, the enumeration is empty.
VDS_E_PROVIDER_CACHE_CORRUPT
0x8004241FL
This return value signals a software or communication problem inside a provider that caches information about the array. Use the IVdsHwProvider::Reenumerate method followed by the IVdsHwProvider::Refresh method to restore the cache.
VDS_E_OBJECT_STATUS_FAILED
0x80042431L
The provider is in a failed state, and is unable to perform the requested operation.
VDS_E_ANOTHER_CALL_IN_PROGRESS
0x80042404L
Another operation is in progress; this operation cannot proceed until the previous operation or operations are complete.
VDS_E_INITIALIZE_NOT_CALLED
0x80042402L
The initialization method has not been called.

Remarks

The returned object enumerates all subsystems currently connected to the network. Use the IVdsHwProvider::Reenumerate method to discover new subsystems. Use the IVdsHwProvider::Refreshmethod to refresh the internally-cached provider data for existing subsystems.
