Detailed Description

The Disable-StorageEnclosureIdentification cmdlet turns off the identification LED on the specified storage enclosure and, optionally, on the slots for individual disks. Administrators typically use LEDs to locate a physical disk in an enclosure for removal or replacement. This cmdlet requires a storage enclosure that supports SCSI Enclosure Services (SES).

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.
