IVdsMaintenance::StartMaintenance method (vds.h)
Starts a maintenance operation.
HRESULT StartMaintenance( [in] VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION operation );
A maintenance operation enumerated by VDS_MAINTENANCE_OPERATION.
This method can return standard HRESULT values, such as E_INVALIDARG or E_OUTOFMEMORY, and VDS-specific return values. It can also return converted system error codes using the HRESULT_FROM_WIN32 macro. Errors can originate from VDS itself or from the underlying VDS provider that is being used. Possible return values include the following.
||This return value signals a software or communication problem inside a provider that caches information about the array. Use the IVdsHwProvider::Reenumerate method followed by the IVdsHwProvider::Refresh method to restore the cache.|
||The subsystem object is no longer present.|
||The subsystem is in a failed state, and is unable to perform the requested operation.|
||Another operation is in progress; this operation cannot proceed until the previous operation or operations are complete.|
||This operation or combination of parameters is not supported by this provider.|
Once an operation begins, it runs until the caller invokes either the StopMaintenance method or the PulseMaintenance method. When StopMaintenance is called on a running operation, the operation stops immediately. When PulseMaintenance is called on a running operation, the operation pulses the specified number of times and then stops.
