Description

VixHandle
VixVM_UpgradeVirtualHardware(VixHandle vmHandle,
                             int options,
                             VixEventProc *callbackProc,
                             void *clientData);

Upgrades the virtual hardware version of the virtual machine to match the version of the VIX library. This has no effect if the virtual machine is already at the same version or at a newer version than the VIX library.

Parameters

vmHandle
Identifies a virtual machine. Call VixVM_Open() to create a virtual machine handle.
options
Must be 0.
callbackProc
A callback function that will be invoked when the operation is complete.
clientData
A parameter that will be passed to the callbackProc function.

Return Value

VixHandle. A job handle that describes the state of this asynchronous operation.

Remarks

Side Effects

None.

Requirements

vix.h, since VMware Server 1.0
