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