Get-MPIOAvailableHW

Updated: October 8, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Get-MPIOAvailableHW

Lists devices available to the system that can be managed by the Microsoft Device Specific Module (MSDSM) for Multipath I/O (MPIO).

Syntax

Parameter Set: DefaultSet
Get-MPIOAvailableHW [[-VendorId] <String[]> ] [[-ProductId] <String[]> ] [-AsJob] [-BusType <BusType[]> ] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-IsMultipathed <Boolean[]> ] [-IsSPC3Supported <Boolean[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The cmdlet lists available hardware devices in the system that can be managed by the Microsoft Device Specific Module (MSDSM) for Multipath I/O (MPIO).

Note: To add one of the devices to MSDSM supported hardware list, use the vendor identifier (ID) and product ID of the device that are outputs from this cmdlet as inputs for the New-MSDSMSupportedHW cmdlet.

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.
