Detailed Description

The Update-StoragePool cmdlet updates the metadata of a Windows Server® 2012 storage pool to a Windows Server® 2012 R2 storage pool. If you upgrade Windows Server 2012 to Windows Server 2012 R2, storage pools hosted on that server continue to work, but new Storage Spaces functionality, such as storage tiers, is not available. This cmdlet enables new Storage Spaces functionality for a storage pool on a server that runs Windows Server 2012 R2.

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.
