Export-IscsiTargetServerConfiguration

Exports an iSCSI Target Server configuration.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Export-IscsiTargetServerConfiguration [-Filename] <String> [[-ComputerName] <String> ] [[-Credential] <String> ] [-Force] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Export-IscsiTargetServerConfiguration cmdlet exports a Microsoft iSCSI Target Server configuration. Use this cmdlet to archive an iSCSI Target Server configuration, or to create a file to import by using the Import-IscsiTargetServerConfiguration cmdlet.

The configuration information includes the following:

-- If the cmdlet exports the configuration from a clustered iSCSI Target Server instance, the resource group name.
-- For an import of the configuration into an iSCSI Target Server clustered instance, the name of the resource group into which to import the configuration. This resource group name is the same as the iSCSI virtual disk attribute named MigrationResourceGroup.
-- The following attributes for each iSCSI target that iSCSI Target Server hosts: Enabled (target state), HostName, TargetIQN, Description, ResourceGroup, MigrationResourceGroup, EnforceIdleTimeoutDetection, FirstBurstLength, MaxBurstLength, MaxRecvDataSegmentLength, NumRecvBuffers, EnableCHAP, CHAPUserName, EnableReverseCHAP, ReverseCHAPUserName, InitiatorIDs, and LunMappings.
-- The following attributes for each iSCSI virtual disk that iSCSI Target Server recognizes: DiskId, Type, Enabled, DevicePath, ParentPath, Description, SnapshotStorageSize, MigrationDevicePath, MigrationParentPath, and MigrationResourceGroup.

MigrationParentPath and ParentPath always have a value of null.

This cmdlet does not export Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) secret keys, logical unit (LU) snapshot information, or transient state information such as current session information.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String>

Specifies the computer name, or IP address, of the remote computer, if this cmdlet is run on a remote computer.

Specifies the cluster resource group network name, or cluster node name, if this cmdlet is run on a cluster configuration.

The cmdlet exports the configuration for the iSCSI Target Server instance that runs on the computer or cluster that you specify. If you do not specify a value for this parameter, the cmdlet uses the local computer.

Examples

Example 1: Export configuration of a standalone server

This command exports the iSCSI Target Server configuration of a standalone iSCSI Target Server to a specified file.


PS C:\> Export-IscsiTargetServerConfiguration -Filename "D:\Server07Config.xml" –ComputerName "StandAloneIscsiServer07.Contoso.com" "

Example 2: Export configuration of a clustered server

This command exports the iSCSI Target Server configuration of a clustered iSCSI Target Server to a specified file. The command includes the Force, and, therefore, it overwrites an existing file without prompting you.


PS C:\> Export-IscsiTargetServerConfiguration -Filename "D:\Server07Config.xml" –ComputerName "ClusteredIscsiInstance07.Contoso.com" –Force 

Example 3: Export configuration of all clustered servers in a specified node

This command exports the iSCSI Target Server configuration of all clustered iSCSI Target Server instances hosted on the named cluster node to a specified file.


PS C:\> Export-IscsiTargetServerConfiguration -Filename "D:\Node22config.xml" –ComputerName "Node22-iSCSIServer.Contoso.com"
