VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG enumeration

[Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the Virtual Disk Service COM interface is superseded by the Windows Storage Management API.]

Defines the set of valid flags for provider query operations. Callers can query for hardware providers, software providers, or both.

Syntax


typedef enum  { 
  VDS_QUERY_SOFTWARE_PROVIDERS     = 0x1,
  VDS_QUERY_HARDWARE_PROVIDERS     = 0x2,
  VDS_QUERY_VIRTUALDISK_PROVIDERS  = 0x4
} VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG;

Constants

VDS_QUERY_SOFTWARE_PROVIDERS

If set, the operation queries for software providers.

VDS_QUERY_HARDWARE_PROVIDERS

If set, the operation queries for hardware providers.

VDS_QUERY_VIRTUALDISK_PROVIDERS

If set, the operation queries for virtual disk providers.

Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2003:  Not supported.

Remarks

This enumeration provides the value for the masks parameter of the IVdsService::QueryProviders method. You can specify more than one value in the same query. For example, to query for software and hardware providers, specify both VDS_QUERY_SOFTWARE_PROVIDERS and VDS_QUERY_HARDWARE_PROVIDERS in the masks parameter.

Note  Additional constants might be added to the VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG enumeration in future Windows versions. For this reason, your application must be designed to gracefully handle an unrecognized VDS_QUERY_PROVIDER_FLAG enumeration constant.
