Disable method of the Win32_Tpm class
The Disable method of the Win32_Tpm class allows the TPM owner to disable or suspend the TPM. This method suspends BitLocker if calling could cause BitLocker recovery to be required. BitLocker would automatically resume once TPM has been provisioned.
uint32 Disable( [in, optional] string OwnerAuth );
OwnerAuth [in, optional]
A string that identifies the TPM owner. This string must be a base64-encoded string that contains exactly 20 bytes of binary data. Use the ConvertToOwnerAuth method to translate a passphrase to this expected format. The OwnerAuth parameter is read from the registry if none is provided.
All TPM errors as well as errors specific to TPM Base Services can be returned.
The following table lists some of the common return codes.
||The method was successful.
||The provided owner authorization value cannot perform the request.
||The TPM is defending against dictionary attacks and is in a time-out period. For more information, see the ResetAuthLockOut method.
To disable the TPM without having the TPM owner authorization value, use the SetPhysicalPresenceRequest method.
