DFS_INFO_2 info  Overview  Group

[This is preliminary documentation and subject to change.]

The DFS_INFO_2 structure contains information about a junction point in a Distributed File System (Dfs) tree structure. The information includes Dfs name, status, and the number of alternate paths associated with the junction point.

typedef struct _DFS_INFO_2 {

    LPWSTR  EntryPath;    // Dfs name for the top of the junction point

    LPWSTR  Comment;      // comment for the junction point

    DWORD   State;        // state of the junction point

    DWORD   NumberOfStorages; // number of storage shares for the junction point




Pointer to a null-terminated Unicode character string that specifies the Universal Naming Convention path of a junction point in a Dfs tree structure. The string will be of the form:


where Dfsname is the name of a Windows NT server that hosts the Dfs root volume; sharename is the name of a share that is published on the Dfs host server; and path-to-junction-point specifies the path on the physical share.

Pointer to a null-terminated Unicode character string that contains a comment associated with the junction point.
A set of bit flags that specify the status of the junction point. This member must be one of the following values.




The specified junction point is in the normal state.


The internal Dfs database is inconsistent with the specified junction point. Attempts to repair the inconsistency have failed.


The specified junction point is offline or unavailable.


The specified junction point is available.

Specifies the number of alternate paths, that is, the number of shares, associated with the junction point.


The Dfs functions use the DFS_INFO_2 structure to retrieve information about a Dfs junction point.
