Detailed Description

The Get-MaskingSet cmdlet returns a list of created masking sets. Masking sets are used to grant access to a virtual disk or iSCSI VHD for one or more servers.

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.

<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: Get all masking sets

This example gets and displays all existing MaskingSet objects which have been created using any available Storage Management Providers across all visible storage subsystems.


PS C:\> Get-MaskingSet

Example 2: Get all Microsoft Windows masking sets

This example gets and displays all masking sets hosted by a computer running Microsoft Windows.


PS C:\> Get-MaskingSet -HostType MicrosoftWindows

Example 3: Get the masking set for a specific virtual disk

This example gets the masking set for the CompanyData virtual disk. It does so by using the Get-VirtualDisk cmdlet to get the appropriate VirtualDisk object and provide it to the VirtualDisk parameter of Get-MaskingSet.


PS C:\> Get-MaskingSet -VirtualDisk (Get-VirtualDisk -FriendlyName CompanyData)
