The VerifyNoLoops Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class method, in Configuration Manager, determines if the insertion of a site in the Configuration Manager hierarchy at a specific point will result in a recursive loop of the sites.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and is intended to show the definition of the method.

SInt32 VerifyNoLoops(
	 String CentralSiteCode,
	 String TargetSiteCode,
	 String ParentSiteCode,
	 Boolean Result



Data type: String Qualifiers: [in, SizeLimit("3")]Not used.

Data type: String Qualifiers: [in, SizeLimit("3")]Site code of the child site to insert.

Data type: String Qualifiers: [in, SizeLimit("3")] Site code of the site that will be the parent of the target site.

Data type: Boolean Qualifiers: [out]true if no loop is formed by inserting the new site in the Configuration Manager hierarchy

Return Values

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

For information about handling returned errors, see About Configuration Manager Errors.

Example Code

The following example shows how to call the VerifyNoLoops method.

  Copy Code
Dim Site As SWbemObject
Dim NoLoop As Boolean

Set Site = GetObject("winmgmts:root\sms\site_<sitecode>:SMS_Site")
Site.VerifyNoLoops "", "<child sitecode>", "<parent sitecode>", NoLoop

MsgBox "NoLoop = " & NoLoop
