IVdsSwProvider::CreatePack method (vds.h)

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Creates a pack object.

Syntax

HRESULT CreatePack(
  IVdsPack **ppPack
);

Parameters

ppPack

The address of an IVdsPack interface. Callers must release the interface.

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
S_OK
The method completed successfully.
VDS_E_ONLINE_PACK_EXISTS
0x80042464L
Another dynamic pack exists with VDS_PS_ONLINE status. Only one dynamic pack can have this status at a time.

Remarks

Use this method to create a pack before calling the IVdsPack::MigrateDisks method to convert disk formatting. When converting a basic disk to dynamic format, pass either a new or existing pack as an argument to MigrateDisks. When converting a dynamic disk to basic format, use CreatePack to create a new, individual pack to hold the basic disk.
