IMSAdminBase::GetDataPaths

IIS 6.0

The IMSAdminBase::GetDataPaths determines which keys in the metabase contain a specified data identifier. This method retrieves the paths of all keys in the subtree relative to a specified starting key that actually contains the identifier. You can use this method to determine the scope of inherited data values, because only keys that contain the identifier itself are returned. Paths to keys that contain only inherited data for the specified identifier will not be returned.

HRESULT GetDataPaths(
   METADATA_HANDLE hMDHandle,
   LPCWSTR pszMDPath,
   DWORD dwMDIdentifier,
   DWORD dwMDDataType,
   DWORD dwMDBufferSize,
   LPWSTR pszBuffer,
   DWORD* pdwMDRequiredBufferSize
);

hMDHandle

Specifies a handle to the metabase. This can either be METADATA_MASTER_ROOT_HANDLE or a handle returned by a previous call to IMSAdminBase::OpenKey.

pszMDPath

Points to a string that contains the path of the key to be opened, relative to hMDHandle. For example, if the handle references the /LM key, you could specify the Web services subkey using the path /W3SVC.

dwMDIdentifier

Specifies the identifier of the data, such as MD_ACCESS_PERM.

dwMDDataType

A DWORD that specifies the type of data to be located. This parameter can be one of the following values:

Data type

Meaning

ALL_METADATA

Copy or move all data, regardless of type.

BINARY_METADATA

Binary data in any form.

DWORD_METADATA

An unsigned 32-bit number.

EXPANDSZ_METADATA

A null-terminated string that contains unexpanded environment variables, such as %PATH%.

MULTISZ_METADATA

An array of null-terminated strings, terminated by two null characters.

STRING_METADATA

A null-terminated ASCII string.

dwMDBufferSize

Specifies the size, in wchars, of the buffer.

pszBuffer

Points to a buffer that receives the data. If the method call is successful, the buffer will contain a double-null terminated multsz of all paths in the subtree that contain the specified identifier. The returned paths are relative to the handle specified. If the identifier exists on the key designated by the handle and path specified, this path will be the first entry in the list.

pdwMDRequiredBufferSize

Points to a DWORD that contains the buffer length required, in wchars. This parameter is used only if the method returns HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER).

Returns an HRESULT that contains one of the following values:

Value

Description

E_INVALIDARG

The parameter is incorrect.

HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_MEMORY)

There is not enough memory to complete the operation.

HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND)

The specified path is not found.

S_OK

The method succeeded.
