IVdsLun2::QueryHints2 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[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]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 the hints currently applied to the LUN. This method is identical to the IVdsLun::QueryHints method, except that it uses a VDS_HINTS2 structure instead of a VDS_HINTS structure.

Syntax

HRESULT QueryHints2(
  VDS_HINTS2 *pHints2
);

Parameters

pHints2

A pointer to the returned LUN hints. See the VDS_HINTS2 structure.

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
VDS_E_PROVIDER_CACHE_CORRUPT
0x8004241FL
There is 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_DELETED
0x8004240BL
The LUN object is no longer present.
VDS_E_OBJECT_STATUS_FAILED
0x80042431L
The LUN 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_NOT_SUPPORTED
0x80042400L
This operation or combination of parameters is not supported by this provider.

Remarks

Callers can specify hints by passing in the pHints2 parameter to the IVdsSubSystem2::CreateLun2 method when creating a LUN or by using the IVdsLun2::ApplyHints2 method to apply a set of new hints to an existing LUN.
