Managing Asynchronous Operations

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

The code example that follows demonstrates how a caller works with an async object. Here, the SynchronousCreateLun function calls the asynchronous IVdsSubSystem::CreateLun method using the given parameters. The function will wait on the async object for the asynchronous CreateLun method call to finish. When the IVdsAsync::Wait method returns, SynchronousCreateLun gets the IVdsLun interface for the newly created LUN and returns it as an out argument.


//
// Simple macro to release non-null interfaces.
//
#include <windows.h>
#include "vds.h"
#include <stdio.h>

#define _SafeRelease(x) {if (NULL != x) { x->Release(); x = NULL; } }

HRESULT SynchronousCreateLun(
    IVdsSubSystem *pSubsystem,
    VDS_LUN_TYPE  type,
    ULONGLONG     ullSize,
    VDS_OBJECT_ID *pDriveIdArray,
    LONG          lNumberOfDrives,
    LPWSTR        pwszUnmaskingList,
    VDS_HINTS     *pHints,
    IVdsLun       **ppLun)
{
    HRESULT hResult = S_OK;
    HRESULT hResult2 = S_OK;
    IVdsAsync *pAsync = NULL;
    VDS_ASYNC_OUTPUT AsyncOut;
    IUnknown* pUnknown = NULL;

    ZeroMemory( &AsyncOut, sizeof(VDS_ASYNC_OUTPUT));

    hResult = pSubsystem->CreateLun(
        type,
        ullSize,
        pDriveIdArray,
        lNumberOfDrives,
        pwszUnmaskingList,
        pHints,
        &pAsync);

    if (SUCCEEDED(hResult) && (!pAsync)) {
        hResult = E_UNEXPECTED; // Errant provider, returned S_OK 
                                // with a NULL pointer.
    }

    if (SUCCEEDED(hResult)) {
        // Wait until the Async is done.
        hResult2 = pAsync->Wait( &hResult, &AsyncOut);
        if (SUCCEEDED(hResult) && FAILED(hResult2)) {
            hResult = hResult2;
        }
    }

    if (SUCCEEDED(hResult) && (VDS_ASYNCOUT_CREATELUN != AsyncOut.type)) {
        hResult = E_UNEXPECTED; // Errant provider, returned S_OK  
                                // with an unexpected type.
    }

    if (SUCCEEDED(hResult)) {
        pUnknown = AsyncOut.cl.pLunUnk;
        if (!pUnknown) {
            hResult = E_UNEXPECTED; // Errant provider, returned 
                                    // S_OK with a NULL pointer.
        }
    }

    if (SUCCEEDED(hResult)) {
        hResult = pUnknown->QueryInterface(IID_IVdsLun, (void **)ppLun);
    }

    _SafeRelease(pAsync);
    _SafeRelease(pUnknown);

    return hResult;
