VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG enumeration (vds.h)

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Defines the set of valid flags for provider query operations. Callers can query for hardware providers, software providers, or both.

Syntax

typedef enum _VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG {
  VDS_QUERY_SOFTWARE_PROVIDERS,
  VDS_QUERY_HARDWARE_PROVIDERS,
  VDS_QUERY_VIRTUALDISK_PROVIDERS
} VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG;

Constants

 
VDS_QUERY_SOFTWARE_PROVIDERS
If set, the operation queries for software providers.
VDS_QUERY_HARDWARE_PROVIDERS
If set, the operation queries for hardware providers.
VDS_QUERY_VIRTUALDISK_PROVIDERS
If set, the operation queries for virtual disk providers.

Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003:  Not supported.

Remarks

This enumeration provides the value for the masks parameter of the IVdsService::QueryProviders method. You can specify more than one value in the same query. For example, to query for software and hardware providers, specify both VDS_QUERY_SOFTWARE_PROVIDERS and VDS_QUERY_HARDWARE_PROVIDERS in the masks parameter.

Note  Additional constants might be added to the VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG enumeration in future Windows versions. For this reason, your application must be designed to gracefully handle an unrecognized VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG enumeration constant.
