Examples

The following C# example shows how to call the GetVirtualHardDiskState method. The referenced utilities can be found in Common utilities for the virtualization samples (V2).


public static void GetVirtualHardDiskSettingData(string vhdPath)
{
    ManagementScope scope = new ManagementScope(@"root\virtualization\V2", null);
    ManagementObject imageService = Utility.GetServiceObject(scope, "Msvm_ImageManagementService");
    ManagementBaseObject inParams = imageService.GetMethodParameters("GetVirtualHardDiskSettingData");

    inParams["Path"] = vhdPath;

    ManagementBaseObject outParams = imageService.InvokeMethod("GetVirtualHardDiskSettingData", inParams, null);
    if ((UInt32)outParams["ReturnValue"] == ReturnCode.Started)
    {
        if (Utility.JobCompleted(outParams, scope))
        {
            Console.WriteLine("GetVirtualHardDiskSettingData was successful.");
        }
        else
        {
            Console.WriteLine("GetVirtualHardDiskSettingData was not successful.");
        }
    }
    else if ((UInt32)outParams["ReturnValue"] == ReturnCode.Completed)
    {
        string diskStateString = outParams["SettingData"].ToString();
        Utility.PrintEmbeddedInstance(diskStateString);
    }

    outParams.Dispose();
    inParams.Dispose();
    imageService.Dispose();
}
