Detailed Description

The Update-StorageProviderCache cmdlet updates the cache of the service for a particular provider and associated child objects.

Note: Using the Full value for the DiscoveryLevel parameter without using additional parameters to limit the scope to particular storage providers or storage subsystems causes all accessible storage providers to enumerate and report all state information, which can be extremely time intensive in large environments.

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.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-DiscoveryLevel<DiscoveryLevel>

Defines the level (or depth) of discovery that should be performed. Increasing levels are cumulative; the storage providers will discover objects starting from Level0 and continuing to the highest level specified. Acceptable values are:

Full, which discovers all objects on all accessible storage providers. This is the same as a Level3 discovery.

Level0, which discovers storage provider and storage subsystem objects.

Level1, which performs a Level0 discovery and then discovers storage pools, resiliency settings, target ports, target portals, and initiator identifiers.

Level2, which performs a Level1 discovery and then discovers virtual disk and masking set objects.

Level3, which performs a Level2 discovery and then discovers physical disk objects. This is the same as a Full discovery.

All storage providers perform a Level0 or higher level discovery when loaded by Windows.

-RootObject<PSReference>

Specifies a reference to the object from which you want to begin discovering associated objects. When the DiscoveryLevel parameter is not specified, well-defined actions will be taken depending on the type of object reference specified:

StorageSubsystem: All associated objects will be discovered.

StoragePool: The pool, along with any associated resiliency settings, virtual disks, and physical disks will be discovered.

MaskingSet: The masking set, along with any associated target ports, initiator identifiers, and virtual disks will be discovered.

For all other objects, only the specified object will be discovered or refreshed.

-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.

<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.

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: Perform a Full update of all objects

This example performs a Full update of the storage provider cache on all accessible storage providers, rescanning all associated physical disks and reporting the state. This operation can be extremely time intensive in large or enterprise environments; instead use parameters to scope the update.


PS C:\> Update-StorageProviderCache -DiscoveryLevel Full

Example 2: Update PhysicalDisk objects for a particular storage provider

This example uses the StorageSubsystem parameter in association with the Get-StorageSubSystem cmdlet to get a particular storage subsystem and then perform a Level3 update on its associated storage provider, discovering all associated PhysicalDisk objects.


PS C:\> Update-StorageProviderCache -StorageSubSystem (Get-StorageSubSystem -FriendlyName "StorageArray*") -DiscoveryLevel Level3

Example 3: Update all objects for a specific storage pool

This example uses the Name parameter to specify the storage provider to update, and uses the RootObject parameter to specify the specific storage pool for which to update objects. Because RootObject takes PSReference objects as input, you need to prepend the object call with [ref] to get a reference to the object instead of the object itself.


PS C:\> Update-StorageProviderCache -Name "StorageArray" -RootObject ([ref](Get-StoragePool "Storage pool"))
