1: Create a copy of an existing logical unit.

The first command gets the storage logical unit object named LUN01 and stores the object in the $SourceLU variable.

The second command creates a new logical unit named NewLU by cloning LUN01.


PS C:\> $SourceLU = Get-SCStorageLogicalUnit -Name "LUN01"PS C:\> New-SCStorageLogicalUnit -SetLogicalUnitCopySource -StorageLogicalUnit $SourceLU -Name "NewLU" -LogicalUnitCopyMethod Clone
