Parameter Set: InputObject (cdxml)
Add-InitiatorIdToMaskingSet -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-HostType <HostType> ] [-InitiatorIds <String[]> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-InitiatorIdToMaskingSet cmdlet adds an initiator ID to an existing masking set, granting the host associated with the initiator ID access to the virtual disk and target port resources defined in the masking set.

This cmdlet is not needed when using the Storage Spaces subsystem.

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.

-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.

Examples

Example 1: Adding an InitiatorID to a masking set by masking set object

This example shows getting Fibre Channel initiator ports from the Srv1 computer, then getting the masking set object for the Cluster1MaskingSet, then enabling Srv1 access to all virtual disks defined in the masking set.


PS C:\> $fcPorts = Get-InitiatorPort -CimSession Srv1 -ConnectionType FibreChannel
PS C:\> $maskingSet = Get-MaskingSet Cluster1MaskingSet
PS C:\> $fcPorts.NodeAddress 2000001b328d33cd2001001b32ad33cd
PS C:\> $maskingSet | Add-InitiatorIdToMaskingSet -InitiatorIds $fcPorts.NodeAddress
