The GatherWriterStatus method prompts each writer to send a status message.
HRESULT GatherWriterStatus( IVssAsync **pAsync );
Doubly indirect pointer to an IVssAsync object containing the writer status data.
The following are the valid return codes for this method.
||Successfully returned a pointer to an instance of the IVssAsync interface. See IVssAsync::QueryStatus for the valid values returned by the pHrResult parameter.|
||The caller does not have sufficient backup privileges or is not an administrator.|
||ppAsync does not point to a valid pointer; that is, it is NULL.|
||The caller is out of memory or other system resources.|
||The backup components object is not initialized, this method has been called during a restore operation, or this method has not been called within the correct sequence.|
Unexpected error. The error code is logged in the error log file. For more information, see
Event and Error Handling Under VSS.
Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP: This value is not supported until Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7. E_UNEXPECTED is used instead.
||The writer infrastructure is not operating properly. Check that the Event Service and VSS have been started, and check for errors associated with those services in the error log.|
The caller of this method should also call IVssBackupComponents::FreeWriterStatus after receiving the status of each writer.
After calling BackupComplete, requesters must call GatherWriterStatus to cause the writer session to be set to a completed state.
The caller is responsible for releasing the IVssAsync interface.
