DscFileSet.AddNewFile Method (UInt64)

Creates an entry for a new file with the specified size estimate in a DSC file set.

Namespace: Microsoft.Hpc.Dsc
Assembly: Microsoft.Hpc.Dsc (in Microsoft.Hpc.Dsc.dll)

Dim instance As DscFileSet
Dim estimatedFileSizeInBytes As ULong
Dim returnValue As DscFile

returnValue = instance.AddNewFile(estimatedFileSizeInBytes)

public DscFile AddNewFile (
	ulong estimatedFileSizeInBytes
public DscFile AddNewFile (
	UInt64 estimatedFileSizeInBytes
public function AddNewFile (
	estimatedFileSizeInBytes : ulong
) : DscFile



An unsigned long integer that specifies the estimated final size in bytes of the DSC file that you want to add to the file set.

Return Value

A DscFile that represents the new DSC file.

You cannot add new files to a file set after you call the Seal method to finalize the data in the file set.

The DSC service chooses the nodes on which to store the DSC file. To specify the name of the compute node on which you prefer the DSC file to be stored, use the AddNewFile(UInt64,String) version of the method instead.
