AddVirtualSystemResources method of the Msvm_VirtualSystemManagementService class

Hyper-V

Adds resources to an existing virtual system.

Syntax


uint32 AddVirtualSystemResources(
  [in]   CIM_ComputerSystem REF TargetSystem,
  [in]   string ResourceSettingData[],
  [out]  CIM_ResourceAllocationSettingData REF NewResources[],
  [out]  CIM_ConcreteJob REF Job
);

Parameters

TargetSystem [in]

Type: CIM_ComputerSystem

A reference to the computer system instance to which the resource is to be added.

ResourceSettingData [in]

Type: string[]

An array of strings representing embedded instances of class CIM_ResourceAllocationSettingData that describe the resources to be added.

NewResources [out]

Type: CIM_ResourceAllocationSettingData[]

An optional reference to an array of instances of CIM_ResourceAllocationSettingData that describe the setting data for the newly created resources.

Job [out]

Type: CIM_ConcreteJob

An optional parameter for monitoring progress of the operation, which is used if the method could not be executed synchronously. If the operation is executing asynchronously, the return value is 4096.

Return value

Type: uint32

This method returns one of the following values.

Completed with No Error (0)
Method Parameters Checked - Job Started (4096)
Failed (32768)
Access Denied (32769)
Not Supported (32770)
Status is unknown (32771)
Timeout (32772)
Invalid parameter (32773)
System is in used (32774)
Invalid state for this operation (32775)

Remarks

Access to the Msvm_VirtualSystemManagementService class might be restricted by UAC Filtering. For more information, see User Account Control and WMI.

Examples

The following C# sample adds resources to a virtual system. The referenced utilities can be found in Common Utilities for the Virtualization Samples.

Important  To function correctly, the following code must be run on the VM host server, and must be run with Administrator privileges.
