IsNumericalPasswordValid method of the Win32_EncryptableVolume class
The IsNumericalPasswordValid method of the Win32_EncryptableVolume class indicates whether the numerical password meets the special format requirements for this authentication value.
uint32 IsNumericalPasswordValid( [in] string NumericalPassword, [out] boolean IsNumericalPasswordValid );
A string that specifies the numerical password.
The numerical password must contain 48 digits. These digits can be divided into 8 groups of 6 digits, with the last digit in each group indicating a checksum value for the group. Each group of 6 digits must be divisible by 11 and must be less than 720896. Assuming a group of six digits is labeled as x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, and x6, the checksum x6 digit is calculated as –x1+x2–x3+x4–x5 mod 11.
The groups of digits can optionally be separated by a space or hyphen. Therefore, "xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx" or "xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx" may also contain valid numerical passwords.
A Boolean value that is true if the numerical password meets the special format requirements for this authentication value, otherwise the value is false.
This method returns one of the following codes or another error code if it fails.
||The method was successful.
