ERASE_BAND_PARAMETERS structure

The ERASE_BAND_PARAMETERS structure contains the selection criteria for a band to erase. Additionally, a new authentication key can be set. This structure is input for an IOCTL_EHSTOR_BANDMGMT_ERASE_BAND request.

Syntax


typedef struct _ERASE_BAND_PARAMETERS {
  ULONG         StructSize;
  ULONG         Flags;
  ULONG         Reserved;
  ULONG         BandId;
  LARGE_INTEGER BandStart;
  ULONG         NewAuthKeyOffset;
} ERASE_BAND_PARAMETERS, *PERASE_BAND_PARAMETERS;

Members

StructSize

The size of this structure in bytes. Set to sizeof(ERASE_BAND_PARAMETERS).

Flags

Delete operation flags. This value is a bitwise OR combination of the following.

ValueMeaning
ERASEBAND_AUTHKEY_CACHING_ENABLED

The new authentication key for this band is cached allowing for automation of later operations.

 

Reserved

Reserved.

BandId

The identifier of a single band to return information for. BandSize must be 0 when a single band is selected with BandId. To use BandStart and BandSize instead of BandId to select a band, set BandId = (ULONG) –1.

BandStart

The starting byte location on the storage device to begin a band search. An attempt is made to match a band at or after BandStart.

NewAuthKeyOffset

The offset, in bytes, of an AUTH_KEY structure containing the new authorization key for the band. The offset is from the beginning of ERASE_BAND_PARAMETERS. AUTH_KEY is declared in ehstorbandmgmt.h as the following.


typedef struct _AUTH_KEY
{
    ULONG   KeySize;
    UCHAR   Key[ANYSIZE_ARRAY];
} AUTH_KEY;

KeySize

The size of the key, in bytes, of the key data at Key. If KeySize is set to 0, a default key is used.

Key

A variable-length byte array that contains the key data.

To specify a default authentication key to the band, set NewAuthKeyOffset = EHSTOR_BANDMGR_NO_KEY.

Remarks

Precedence is given to BandID for band selection. If BandID is greater than 0 and BandID is less than the MaxBandCount member of BAND_MANAGEMENT_CAPABILITIES, then BandID is used as the only selection criteria for a band match. If BandID == –1, then BandStart is used as the match criteria to select a band. If no band matches either selection criteria, then STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER is returned in the IoStatus block for IOCTL_EHSTOR_BANDMGMT_ERASE_BAND.
