VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION enumeration

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Defines the set of valid subsystem maintenance operations.

Syntax


typedef enum  { 
  BlinkLight  = 1,
  BeepAlarm   = 2,
  SpinDown    = 3,
  SpinUp      = 4,
  Ping        = 5
} VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION;

Constants

BlinkLight

Blinks a light on a drive.

BeepAlarm

Beeps an alarm on a drive.

SpinDown

Slows the spinning of a drive such that the drive enters an idle state. Typically used for the purpose of saving power.

SpinUp

Starts the spinning of a drive in preparation for data reads.

Ping

Pings a drive.

Remarks

The IVdsMaintenance::StartMaintenance, IVdsMaintenance::StopMaintenance, and IVdsMaintenance::PulseMaintenance methods pass a VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION value as an argument to specify operation details.

Note  Additional constants might be added to the VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION enumeration in future Windows versions. For this reason, your application must be designed to gracefully handle an unrecognized VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION enumeration constant.

Requirements

Minimum supported client

Windows Vista [desktop apps only]

Minimum supported server

Windows Server 2003 [desktop apps only]

Header

Vds.h;
