New-SCVirtualScsiAdapter

Creates a virtual SCSI adapter on a virtual machine, virtual machine template, or hardware profile used in VMM.

Syntax

Parameter Set: VM
New-SCVirtualScsiAdapter [[-AdapterID] <Byte> ] -VM <VM> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-ScsiControllerType <VMSCSIControllerType> ] [-ShareVirtualScsiAdapter <Boolean> ] [-Synthetic] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: HardwareProfile
New-SCVirtualScsiAdapter [[-AdapterID] <Byte> ] -HardwareProfile <HardwareProfile> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-ScsiControllerType <VMSCSIControllerType> ] [-ShareVirtualScsiAdapter <Boolean> ] [-Synthetic] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: JobGroup
New-SCVirtualScsiAdapter [[-AdapterID] <Byte> ] -JobGroup <Guid> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-ScsiControllerType <VMSCSIControllerType> ] [-ShareVirtualScsiAdapter <Boolean> ] [-Synthetic] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: Template
New-SCVirtualScsiAdapter [[-AdapterID] <Byte> ] -VMTemplate <Template> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-ScsiControllerType <VMSCSIControllerType> ] [-ShareVirtualScsiAdapter <Boolean> ] [-Synthetic] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-SCVirtualScsiAdapter cmdlet creates a virtual SCSI adapter on a virtual machine, virtual machine template, or hardware profile used in a System Center Virtual Machine Manager environment. After you create the virtual SCSI adapter, you can use the Set-SCVirtualScsiAdapter cmdlet to modify its settings.

Note: Using the ShareVirtualScsiAdapter parameter to share a virtual SCSI adapter on a virtual machine in order to enable guest clustering is supported only if the virtual machine is deployed on an ESX host. The SharedVirtualScsiAdapter parameter is not used for a virtual machine on a Hyper-V host because a virtual machine on a Hyper-V host uses iSCSI for shared storage.

A virtual machine on a Citrix XenServer host always has one virtual SCSI adapter. You cannot remove this adapter or add additional adapters.

Parameters

-AdapterID<Byte>

Specifies the logical unit number, or LUN ID. Hyper-V and XenServer do not expose this value, and it cannot be changed. For a VMware ESX host, the default is 7 and cannot be changed.

-ShareVirtualScsiAdapter<Boolean>

Specifies that a virtual SCSI adapter will be shared so that it can be used in guest clustering.

TYPE OF HOST USES THIS PARAMETER

------------ --------------------

Hyper-V host No (for guest clustering, use iSCSI storage)

XenServer host No (Xen VMs always have exactly one SCSI adapter)

Note: When sharing a SCSI controller on a virtual machine on an ESX host, VMM defaults the SCSI sharing policy on VMware to "physical."

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

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

Outputs

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

  • VirtualSCSIAdapter

Notes

  • Requires a VMM virtual machine object, virtual machine template object, or hardware profile object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-SCVirtualMachine, Get-SCVMTemplate, or Get-SCHardwareProfile cmdlets, respectively.

Examples

1: Create a virtual SCSI adapter on a virtual machine.

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM01 and stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command creates a virtual SCSI adapter on VM01.


PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM01"PS C:\> New-SCVirtualScsiAdapter -VM $VM

2: Create a virtual SCSI adapter on a virtual machine template.

The first command gets the virtual machine template object named VMTemplate01 from the VMM library and stores the object in the $VMTemplate variable.

The second command creates a virtual SCSI adapter on VMTemplate01.


PS C:\> $VMTemplate = Get-SCVMTemplate | where { $_.Name -eq "VMTemplate01" }PS C:\> New-SCVirtualScsiAdapter -VMTemplate $VMTemplate

3: Create a virtual SCSI adapter on a hardware profile.

The first command gets the hardware profile object named NewHWProfile01 from the VMM library and stores the object in the $HWProfile variable.

The second command creates a virtual SCSI adapter on NewHWProfile01.


PS C:\> $HWProfile = Get-SCHardwareProfile | where { $_.Name -eq "NewHWProfile01" }PS C:\> New-SCVirtualScsiAdapter -HardwareProfile $HWProfile
