ScsiPortGetBusData routine

The ScsiPortGetBusData routine returns bus-type-specific configuration information that a miniport driver's HwScsiFindAdapter routine might use to determine whether it supports a particular adapter on a particular I/O bus, and to configure the HBA if it does.


ULONG ScsiPortGetBusData(
  _In_  PVOID DeviceExtension,
  _In_  ULONG BusDataType,
  _In_  ULONG SystemIoBusNumber,
  _In_  ULONG SlotNumber,
  _In_  PVOID Buffer,
  _In_  ULONG Length


DeviceExtension [in]

Pointer to the miniport driver's per-HBA storage area.

BusDataType [in]

Contains a value of type BUS_DATA_TYPE that specifies the type of bus-specific configuration data to be returned. Currently, this value can be one of the following: Cmos, EisaConfiguration, Pos, or PCIConfiguration. However, additional types of bus configuration will be supported in the future. The upper bound on the types supported is always MaximumBusDataType.

SystemIoBusNumber [in]

Specifies the system-assigned number of the I/O bus. The miniport driver's HwScsiFindAdapter routine obtains this value from the input PORT_CONFIGURATION_INFORMATION SystemIoBusNumber member.

SlotNumber [in]

Specifies the logical slot number or location of the device.

If PCIConfiguration is specified as the BusDataType, this parameter must be specified as a PCI_SLOT_NUMBER-type value.

Buffer [in]

Pointer to a buffer or area to which the configuration data is returned or, if the given Length is zero, points to a location to which the operating system-specific port driver returns a pointer to a buffer that it allocates.

Length [in]

Specifies the maximum number of bytes to return at Buffer, or zero if the caller requires the operating system-specific port driver to allocate a buffer to contain the data.

Return value

ScsiPortGetBusData returns the number of bytes of configuration information it stored in the buffer. When the input BusDataType is PCIConfiguration, ScsiPortGetBusData can return either of the following values to indicate an error.

Return codeDescription
0 (zero)

The PCI bus does not exist.


The PCI bus exists, but there is no device at the given PCI SlotNumber. The Buffer contains the value PCI_INVALID_VENDOR_ID at the PCI_COMMON_CONFIG VendorId member.



ScsiPortGetBusData can be called only from a miniport driver's HwScsiFindAdapter routine or from HwScsiAdapterControl when the control type is ScsiSetRunningConfig. Calls from other miniport driver routines will result in system failure or incorrect operation for the caller.

Configuration data returned by ScsiPortGetBusData is valid only until the miniport driver calls ScsiPortGetBusData again. As soon as the caller's HwScsiFindAdapter routine returns control, any returned configuration data becomes invalid.
