The Hyper-V extensible switch extension issues an object identifier (OID) method request of OID_SWITCH_PORT_PROPERTY_ENUM to obtain an array. This array contains the provisioned port policies that match the specified criteria. Each element in the array specifies the properties of a policy for a specified extensible switch port.
The InformationBuffer member of the NDIS_OID_REQUEST structure contains a pointer to a buffer. This buffer contains the following data:
An NDIS_SWITCH_PORT_PROPERTY_ENUM_PARAMETERS structure that specifies the parameters for the policy enumeration of a specified port.
An array of NDIS_SWITCH_PORT_PROPERTY_ENUM_INFO structures. Each of these structures contains information about the properties of an extensible switch port policy.
Before it issues an OID method request of OID_SWITCH_PORT_PROPERTY_ENUM, the extensible switch extension must follow these guidelines:
The extension can only issue the OID_SWITCH_PORT_PROPERTY_ENUM request after the protocol edge of the extensible switch issues an OID_SWITCH_PORT_CREATE request and before it issues an OID_SWITCH_PORT_TEARDOWN request.
The extension must call ReferenceSwitchPort before it calls NdisFOidRequest to issue the OID_SWITCH_PORT_PROPERTY_ENUM request. This ensures that the specified port will not be deleted until after the OID request is completed.
After the OID request is completed, the extension must call DereferenceSwitchPort. The extension must call this function regardless of whether the OID request was completed with NDIS_STATUS_SUCCESS.
The OID_SWITCH_PORT_PROPERTY_ENUM OID must only be issued when the Hyper-V extensible switch has completed activation. Please see Querying the Hyper-V Extensible Switch Configuration for more details.
The underlying miniport edge of the extensible switch completes the OID query request of OID_SWITCH_PORT_PROPERTY_ENUM and returns the following status code.
The OID request completed successfully.
