RequestStateChange method of the MSFT_NetIPAddress class

[Some information relates to pre-released product which may be substantially modified before it's commercially released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here.]

Requests that the state of the element be changed to the value specified in the RequestedState parameter. When the requested state change takes place, the EnabledState and RequestedState of the element will be the same. Invoking the RequestStateChange method multiple times could result in earlier requests being overwritten or lost.

A return code of 0 shall indicate the state change was successfully initiated.

A return code of 3 shall indicate that the state transition cannot complete within the interval specified by the TimeoutPeriod parameter.

A return code of 4096 (0x1000) shall indicate the state change was successfully initiated, a ConcreteJob has been created, and its reference returned in the output parameter Job. Any other return code indicates an error condition.

RequestedState [in]

The state requested for the element.

Job [out]

May contain a reference to the ConcreteJob created to track the state transition initiated by the method invocation.

TimeoutPeriod [in]

A timeout period that specifies the maximum amount of time that the client expects the transition to the new state to take. The interval format must be used to specify the TimeoutPeriod. A value of 0 or a null parameter indicates that the client has no time requirements for the transition.

If this property does not contain 0 or null and the implementation does not support this parameter, a return code of \'Use Of Timeout Parameter Not Supported\' shall be returned.
