Windows

Last modified: October 25, 2012

Applies to: Windows | Windows Server

The JetSetSessionParameter function configures the database engine.

JET_ERR JET_API JetSetSessionParameter (
  __in_opt      JET_SESID sesid,
  __in          unsigned long sesparamid,
  __in_read_bytes_opt_(cbParam)  void* pvParam,
  __in          unsigned long cbParam
);

Parameters

sesid

Specifies the session to use for this call.

When specified, the specified instance is ignored and the instance associated with the session will be used.

sesparamid

The ID of the session parameter to set.

pvParam

The data to set in this session parameter.

cbParam

The size of the data provided.

Return value

This function returns the JET_ERR data type with one of the return codes listed in the following table. For more information about the possible Extensible Storage Engine (ESE) errors, see Extensible Storage Engine Errors and Error Handling Parameters.

Return code

Description

JET_errSuccess

The operation completed successfully.

JET_errAlreadyInitialized

The instance has been initialized by using a call to the JetInit function and this operation cannot be performed as a result. This can happen when an attempt is made to configure a system parameter after a change in the parameter value can no longer affect the state of the database engine.

JET_errClientRequestToStopJetService

It is not possible to complete the operation because all activity on the instance associated with the session has ceased as a result of a call to the JetStopService function.

JET_errIndexTuplesInvalidLimits

The specified tuple index parameters were illegal. This error is returned only when the JET_paramIndexTuplesLengthMin, JET_paramIndexTuplesLengthMax, or JET_paramIndexTuplesToIndexMax parameter is set to an illegal value. For information about these parameters, see Index Parameters.

JET_errInitInProgress

It is not possible to complete the operation because the instance associated with the session is being initialized.

JET_errInstanceUnavailable

It is not possible to complete the operation because the instance associated with the session has encountered a fatal error that requires that access to all data be revoked to protect the integrity of that data.

JET_errInvalidParameter

One of the parameters provided contained an unexpected value or contained a value that did not make sense when combined with the value of another parameter. This can happen when the following occurs:

  • The specified system parameter ID is invalid or unsupported.

  • An attempt was made to set a string-valued system parameter with a string the length of which was outside the legal range for the parameter.

  • An attempt was made to set a string-valued system parameter with a file path where the length of its absolute path representation was outside the legal range for that parameter.

  • An attempt was made to set an integer-valued system parameter with an integer that was outside the legal range for the parameter.

  • An attempt was made to set JET_paramUnicodeIndexDefault with a null JET_UNICODEINDEX pointer, an invalid LCID, or an unsupported set of LCMapString flags.

  • The specified system parameter cannot be set because it is read-only.

  • An attempt was made to set a system parameter after the JetInit function was called, the database engine is in single-instance mode, and a session was not specified.

  • The specified system parameter is global only and an attempt was made to set an instance-specific value for that system parameter.

  • The specified system parameter is per-instance only and an attempt was made to set the global value for that system parameter.

JET_errInvalidPath

The specified file system path was invalid. This error may be returned by JetSetSessionParameter only when setting system parameters that represent file system paths. For example, the JET_paramSystemPath parameter may return this error. For information about this parameter, see Transaction Log Parameters.

JET_errNotInitialized

It is not possible to complete the operation because the instance associated with the session has not been initialized yet.

JET_errRestoreInProgress

It is not possible to complete the operation because a restore operation is in progress on the instance associated with the session.

JET_errTermInProgress

It is not possible to complete the operation because the instance associated with the session is being shut down.

JET_errInvalidSesid

The session handle is invalid or refers to a closed session.

This error is not returned under all circumstances. Handles are validated on a best effort basis only.

JET_errInvalidInstance

The instance handle is invalid or refers to an instance that has been shut down.

This error is not returned under all circumstances. Handles are validated on a best effort basis only.

On success, the system parameter will be set to the provided value.

On failure, the system parameter value will remain unchanged.
