Get-ResiliencySetting

Updated: July 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Get-ResiliencySetting

Gets the resiliency settings (also known as storage layouts) available for creating virtual disks on the specified storage subsystem.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByName
Get-ResiliencySetting [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Name <String[]> ] [-StoragePool <CimInstance> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByUniqueId
Get-ResiliencySetting [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-UniqueId <String[]> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-ResiliencySetting cmdlet gets the resiliency settings (storage layouts) available for creating virtual disks on the specified storage subsystem. The resiliency settings vary depending on the storage subsystem; the Storage Spaces subsystem supports the Simple, Mirror, and Parity resiliency settings.

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.

-Name<String[]>

Specifies the name of the resiliency setting or settings to get. The supported resiliency setting names vary by storage subsystem; the Storage Spaces subsystem supports the following values: Simple, Mirror, or Parity.

-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_StoragePool

    You can pipe an MSFT_StoragePool object to the StoragePool parameter to get the resiliency setting associated with the StoragePool object.


Outputs

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

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

    The Get-ResiliencySetting cmdlet returns objects representing resiliency settings for a particular storage pool.


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 resiliency setting objects

This example gets all resiliency setting objects for each storage pool, showing which resiliency settings are available for use when creating virtual disks. If there are multiple storage pools, the same resiliency setting might appear more than once, with each object representing the resiliency setting support for a particular storage pool.


PS C:\> Get-ResiliencySetting
Name                    NumberOfDataCopies      PhysicalDiskRedundancy  NumberOfColumns         Interleave 
----                    ------------------      ----------------------  ---------------         ---------- 
Simple                  1                       0                       8                       65536 
Mirror                  2                       1                       4                       65536 
Parity                  1                       1                       8                       65536 

Example 2: Get only Mirror, Parity, and Simple resiliency setting objects

This example displays only the resiliency settings for the types Mirror, Parity and Simple. Other defined resiliency settings are not displayed.


PS C:\> Get-ResiliencySetting -Name Mirror,Parity,Simple

Example 3: Get a resiliency setting object by UniqueID

This example displays one particular resiliency setting object by specifying its UniqueID value, enclosed in quotation marks.


PS C:\> Get-ResiliencySetting -UniqueId "{5d792e9b-ca00-11e1-9350-00155db7aa01}:1"
