IVdsDiskOnline::Offline method

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Takes the disk offline.

Windows Vista:  This method is not supported until Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 (SP1). Use IVdsDisk2::SetSANMode instead.

Syntax


HRESULT Offline();

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

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 codeDescription
VDS_E_FAILED_TO_OFFLINE_DISK

The offline operation failed.

 

Remarks

If a dynamic disk is read/write and online, it can be made read-only and taken offline as follows:

  1. For each volume on the disk, call the IVdsVolumeMF::Dismount method, setting the bForce and bPermanent parameters to TRUE.
  2. Call the Offline method.
  3. Set the read-only bit. (This is the VDS_DF_READ_ONLY flag in the VDS_DISK_PROP structure.)

If a basic disk is read/write and online, it can be made read-only and taken offline the same way, but the order of the steps does not matter.
