IConnectionBrokerClient::GetTargetInfo method

Requests information about the target computer where the connection should be redirected. This method is used by the redirector to get redirection information for the incoming connection request.

Syntax


HRESULT GetTargetInfo(
  [in]   CB_CONNECTION_INFO       *pConnectionInfo,
  [in]   DWORD                    Reserved,
  [in]   HANDLE                   hStatusEvent,
  [out]  CB_TARGET_INFO           *pTargetInfo,
  [out]  DWORD                    *pResult,
  [out]  IConnectionBrokerRequest **ppCbReq
);

Parameters

pConnectionInfo [in]

The address of a CB_CONNECTION_INFO structure that contains information about the incoming connection request.

Reserved [in]

This parameter is reserved for future use and must be zero.

hStatusEvent [in]

The handle of an event that will get set whenever there is an update to the progress of the request. You are responsible for creating and closing this event.

pTargetInfo [out]

The address of a CB_TARGET_INFO structure that receives information about the target computer where the incoming connection should be redirected. Because this is an asynchronous method, this memory must remain available until the request is complete. For more information, see Remarks.

pResult [out]

The address of a DWORD variable that receives a result code. Because this is an asynchronous method, this memory must remain available until the request is complete. For more information, see Remarks.

This result code will be one of the following values.

ValueMeaning
0

Success.

0x0000400

The destination computer could not be found.

0x0000401

The destination computer is not available.

0x0000402

Error loading destination computer.

0x0000403

Error bringing destination computer online.

0x0000404

Error redirecting to destination computer.

0x0000405

Error waking virtual machine.

0x0000406

Error booting virtual machine.

0x0000407

Error finding the IP address of the virtual machine.

0x0000408

The session broker could not find any available computers in the pool.

0x0000409

The session broker canceled the connection.

0x0000410

The session broker could not validate the connection settings.

 

ppCbReq [out]

The address of an IConnectionBrokerRequest interface pointer that you use to obtain status updates for an asynchronous operation. This interface is used in conjunction with the hStatusEvent parameter to wait for and get the results of this asynchronous operation.

Return value

Returns E_PENDING if the asynchronous request is created. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

This method is asynchronous. The pTargetInfo and pResult parameters must remain valid until the IConnectionBrokerRequest::CheckStatus method obtains CB_STATUS_REQUEST_COMPLETED.
