IVdsLunPlex::ApplyHints method (vdshwprv.h)
Applies a new set of hints to the LUN plex. Hints applied to a plex affect neither the LUN nor its other plexes.
HRESULT ApplyHints( VDS_HINTS *pHints );
Pointer to the hints to be applied to the LUN plex. See the VDS_HINTS structure. Only fields relevant to a LUN plex are expected to be set; irrelevant fields are ignored.
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.
||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.|
||The LUN plex is no longer present.|
||The LUN plex is in a failed state, and is unable to perform the requested operation.|
||Another operation is in progress; this operation cannot proceed until the previous operation or operations are complete.|
||This operation or combination of parameters is not supported by this provider.|
Use the IVdsLunPlex::QueryHints method to get the current hints for the LUN plex.
