Assigns a file to a storage tier.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByDesiredStorageTierFriendlyName
Set-FileStorageTier -DesiredStorageTierFriendlyName <String> -FilePath <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByDesiredStorageTier
Set-FileStorageTier -DesiredStorageTier <CimInstance> -FilePath <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByDesiredStorageTierUniqueId
Set-FileStorageTier -DesiredStorageTierUniqueId <String> -FilePath <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-FileStorageTier cmdlet assigns a file to a specified storage tier. Assigning a file to a tier is also called pinning the file to a tier. To pin a file to a storage tier, the file must be on a volume that is hosted by the same tiered storage space. If you pin a file that is already assigned to a different tier, the file changes assignment the next time tier optimization takes place.

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.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • This cmdlet does not generate any output.

  • The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.

Examples

Example 1: Pin a file to a storage tier

The first command uses the Get-StorageTier cmdlet to get a storage tier named Tier07, and then stores the tier in the $StorageTier variable.

The second command pins the specified file to a storage tier. The command specifies the storage tier by using the object stored in the $StorageTier variable.


PS C:\> $StorageTier = Get-StorageTier -FriendlyName "Tier07"
PS C:\> Set-FileStorageTier -DesiredStorageTier $StorageTier -FilePath "D:\DataFile06.txt"

Example 2: Pin a file to a storage tier by using an ID

The first command uses the Get-StorageTier cmdlet to get a storage tier named Tier07, and then stores the tier in the $StorageTier variable.

The second command pins the specified file to a storage tier. The command specifies the ID of the storage tier by using the UniqueID property of the storage tier object stored in the $StorageTier variable.


PS C:\> $StorageTier = Get- StorageTier -FriendlyName "Tier07"
PS C:\> Set-FileStorageTier -DesiredStorageTierUniqueId $StorageTier.UniqueId -FilePath "D:\DataFile06.txt"
