The GetChainedPullDPs Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class method, in System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, ensures that when a source distribution point is assigned, a looping chain is not generated. (If distribution point 1 is the source of distribution point 2, and distribution point 2 is the source of distribution point 3, then distribution point 3 cannot be source of distribution point 1).

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and defines the method.

sint32 GetChainedPullDPs(
	 string SourceDPNALPath,
	 string ChainedDPs[]



Data type: StringQualifiers: [in]Source distribution point NAL path.

Data type: String ArrayQualifiers: [out]An array of chained distribution points.

Return Values

An SInt32 data type that is 0 to indicate success or non-zero to indicate failure.
