ValidateVirtualHardDisk method of the Msvm_ImageManagementService class

Determines whether a virtual hard disk file is valid.

Syntax


uint32 ValidateVirtualHardDisk(
  [in]  string              Path,
  [out] CIM_ConcreteJob REF Job
);

Parameters

Path [in]

Type: string

A fully qualified path that specifies the location of the virtual hard disk file.

Job [out]

Type: CIM_ConcreteJob

If the operation is performed asynchronously, this method will return 4096, and this parameter will contain a reference to an object derived from CIM_ConcreteJob.

Return value

Type: uint32

This method can return one of the following values.

Completed with No Error (0)
Method Parameters Checked - JobStarted (4096)
Failed (32768)
Access Denied (32769)
Not Supported (32770)
Status is unknown (32771)
Timeout (32772)
Invalid parameter (32773)
System is in use (32774)
Invalid state for this operation (32775)
Incorrect data type (32776)
System is not available (32777)
Out of memory (32778)
File Not Found (32779)

Remarks

If the virtual hard disk is a differencing disk, the entire virtual disk chain is opened. If the link is broken in the disk chain, a job object is returned with the appropriate error initialized and the child and parent properties are initialized to the location where the link is broken.

Access to the Msvm_ImageManagementService class might be restricted by UAC Filtering. For more information, see User Account Control and WMI.

Examples

The following C# example validates a virtual hard disk image. The referenced utilities can be found in Common utilities for the virtualization samples (V2).


public static void ValidateVirtualHardDisk(string vhdPath)
{
    ManagementScope scope = new ManagementScope(@"root\virtualization\v2", null);
    ManagementObject imageService = Utility.GetServiceObject(scope, "Msvm_ImageManagementService");

    ManagementBaseObject inParams = imageService.GetMethodParameters("ValidateVirtualHardDisk");
    inParams["Path"] = vhdPath;
    ManagementBaseObject outParams = imageService.InvokeMethod("ValidateVirtualHardDisk", inParams, null);
    if ((UInt32)outParams["ReturnValue"] == ReturnCode.Started)
    {
        if (Utility.JobCompleted(outParams, scope))
        {
            Console.WriteLine("{0} is a valid virtual hard disk.", inParams["Path"]);
        }
        else
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Unable to validate {0}", inParams["Path"]);
        }
    }

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