Enable method of the Win32_Tpm class

The Enable method of the Win32_Tpm class allows the TPM owner to enable or resume the TPM.

To run this method, the TPM must already have an owner. To enable a TPM that does not already have an owner, use the SetPhysicalPresenceRequest method.

Syntax

uint32 Enable(
  [in, optional] string OwnerAuth
);

Parameters

OwnerAuth [in, optional]

Type: string

A string that identifies the TPM owner. This string must be a base64-encoded string that contains exactly 20 bytes of binary data. Use the ConvertToOwnerAuth method to translate a passphrase to this expected format. The OwnerAuth parameter is read from the registry if none is provided.

Return value

Type: uint32

All TPM errors as well as errors specific to TPM Base Services can be returned.

The following table lists some of the common return codes.
