Return value

C++

This method returns S_OK if the call is successful; otherwise, it returns an error code.

VB

This method has no return values. If the call is unsuccessful, an error is raised that can be intercepted by using an error handler.

Remarks

If user credentials are not supplied, the credentials of the user who is currently logged on are used.

After a connection to a Configuration Storage server is established and configuration changes are made, you should not call the DisconnectFromConfigurationStorageServer method and then the ConnectToConfigurationStorageServer or ConnectToConfigServerPort method to establish a new connection before saving the changes made using the current connection.

A computer on which Forefront TMG Management is installed without the Microsoft Firewall service can serve as a remote management computer and can create an instance of the root (FPC) object. However, that computer cannot access the properties of the root object or any other object in the administration COM object hierarchy until it connects to a Configuration Storage server using this method or the ConnectToConfigServerPort method.

The following types of Forefront TMG computers are Configuration Storage servers, and the ConnectToConfigurationStorageServer method can be used to connect to them from a remote management computer.

Examples

When run on a remote Forefront TMG computer, this VBScript subprocedure receives the name of a Configuration Storage server in the parameter passed to it, connects to the specified Configuration Storage server using the credentials of the user who is currently logged on, retrieves and displays the names of the existing arrays, and disconnects. This example does not include complete error handling.


Sub ConnectToCSS(cssName)
    ' Create the root object.
    Dim root  ' The FPCLib.FPC root object
    Set root = CreateObject("FPC.Root")
    ' Declare the other objects needed.
    Dim tmgArrays     ' An FPCArrays collection
    Dim tmgArray      ' An FPCArray object
    ' Connect to the Configuration Storage server.
    root.ConnectToConfigurationStorageServer cssName
    ' Display the name of each array in the enterprise.
    Set tmgArrays = root.Arrays
    For Each tmgArray In tmgArrays
        WScript.Echo tmgArray.Name
    Next
   ' Disconnect from the Configuration Storage server.
   root.DisconnectFromConfigurationStorageServer
End Sub
