Detailed Description

The Get-InitiatorId cmdlet gets the InitiatorID objects for the specified iSCSI initiators.

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.

-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.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_MaskingSet

    You can pipe a MaskingSet object to the MaskingSet parameter.


  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_StorageSubsystem

    You can pipe a StorageSubsystem object to the StorageSubsystem parameter.


  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_VirtualDisk

    You can pipe a VirtualDisk object to the VirtualDisk parameter.


Outputs

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

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_InitiatorId

    This cmdlet returns an object that represents an initiator ID.


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: Get all InitiatorIDs

This example gets and displays all iSCSI initiator IDs on the computer.


PS C:\> Get-InitiatorID

Example 2: Get the storage providers for each InitiatorID

This example gets and displays the storage providers for each InitiatorID by piping the output from the Get-InitiatorId cmdlet to the Get-StorageSubSystem cmdlet, and then piping that cmdlet’s output to the Get-StorageProvider cmdlet.


PS C:\> Get-InitiatorId | Get-StorageSubSystem | Get-StorageProvider

Example 3:Get the InitatorID objects for a masking set

This example uses the Get-MaskingSet cmdlet to get the masking set with a friendly name that ends with EQLV1, and then gets all associated InitiatorID objects.


PS C:\> Get-InitiatorId -MaskingSet (Get-MaskingSet -FriendlyName *EQLV1)
