GetInvertedIfStackTable function

The GetInvertedIfStackTable function retrieves a table of inverted network interface stack row entries that specify the relationship of the network interfaces on an interface stack.

Syntax


NETIOAPI_API  GetInvertedIfStackTable(
  _Out_  PMIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_TABLE *Table
);

Parameters

Table [out]

A pointer to a buffer that receives the table of inverted interface stack row entries in a MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_TABLE structure.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is NO_ERROR.

If the function fails, the return value is one of the following error codes.

Return codeDescription
ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER

An invalid parameter was passed to the function. This error is returned if a NULL pointer is passed in the Table parameter.

ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_MEMORY

Insufficient memory resources are available to complete the operation.

ERROR_NOT_FOUND

No interface stack entries were found.

Other

Use the FormatMessage function to obtain the message string for the returned error.

 

Remarks

The GetInvertedIfStackTable function is defined on Windows Vista and later.

The GetInvertedIfStackTable function enumerates the physical and logical network interfaces on an interface stack on a local system and returns this information in an inverted form in the MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_TABLE structure.

Interface stack entries are returned in a MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_TABLE structure in the buffer pointed to by the Table parameter. The MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_TABLE structure contains an interface stack entry count and an array of MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_ROW structures for each interface stack entry.

The relationship between the interfaces in the interface stack is that the interface with index in the HigherLayerInterfaceIndex member of the MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_ROW structure is immediately above the interface with index in the LowerLayerInterfaceIndex member of the MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_ROW structure.

Memory is allocated by the GetInvertedIfStackTable function for the MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_TABLE structure and the MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_ROW entries in this structure. When these returned structures are no longer required, free the memory by calling the FreeMibTable.

Note that the returned MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_TABLE structure pointed to by the Table parameter may contain padding for alignment between the NumEntries member and the first MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_ROW array entry in the Table member of the MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_TABLE structure. Padding for alignment may also be present between the MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_ROW array entries. Any access to a MIB_INVERTEDIFSTACK_ROW array entry should assume padding may exist.
