Detailed Description

The Set-StorageTier cmdlet modifies a storage tier. Use this cmdlet to change the name and description of a storage tier, and to change the media type that is associated with storage tier.

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.

Examples

Example 1: Change the name of a storage tier

This command changes the friendly name of the storage tier that has the specified ID.


PS C:\> Set-StorageTier -UniqueId '{49dde1c4-5c34-11e2-8441-00155de88701}' -NewFriendlyName "FastTier"

Example 2: Change the description of a storage tier

This command uses the Get-StorageTier cmdlet to get the storage tier named FastTier, and then passes the storage tier to the Set-StorageTier cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The Set-StorageTier cmdlet changes the description of the storage tier to the specified string.


PS C:\> Get-StorageTier -FriendlyName "FastTier" | Set-StorageTier -Description "This tier denotes fast media in the system"
