Connects to storage subsystems on a remote computer.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByName
Register-StorageSubsystem [-ProviderName] <String[]> -ComputerName <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByUniqueId
Register-StorageSubsystem -ComputerName <String> -ProviderUniqueId <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: InputObject (cdxml)
Register-StorageSubsystem -ComputerName <String> -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Register-StorageSubsystem cmdlet connects to storage subsystems on a remote computer or cluster. In data centers and clustered environments, a management node manages storage on the remote computers. From the management node, you must connect to the storage subsystems on the remote computer or cluster before you can manage storage on the remote computer.

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.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

Notes

  • 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: Register a storage subsystem on a remote computer

This command registers the storage subsystem named Storage Spaces Management Provider on the computer named StorageCluster01.


PS C:\> Register-StorageSubsystem -ProviderName "Storage Spaces Management Provider" –ComputerName "StorageCluster01"
