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[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]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

Syntax


typedef enum  { 
  VDS_PT_UNKNOWN      = 0,
  VDS_PT_SOFTWARE     = 1,
  VDS_PT_HARDWARE     = 2,
  VDS_PT_VIRTUALDISK  = 3,
  VDS_PT_MAX          = 4
} VDS_PROVIDER_TYPE;

Constants

VDS_PT_UNKNOWN

The provider type is unknown.

VDS_PT_SOFTWARE

The provider is a software provider.

VDS_PT_HARDWARE

The provider is a hardware provider.

VDS_PT_VIRTUALDISK

The provider is a virtual disk provider.

Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2003:  Not supported.

VDS_PT_MAX

This value is reserved for system use.

Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2003:  Not supported.

Remarks

The VDS_PROVIDER_PROP structure includes a VDS_PROVIDER_TYPE value as a member to report the provider type. The IVdsAdmin::RegisterProvider method passes a VDS_PROVIDER_TYPE value as an argument to indicate the provider type during registration with VDS.

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