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.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a masking set

This example removes the masking set named MaskingSet01. The virtual disks that were defined in this masking set are no longer accessible to any initiators defined in this masking set. A new masking set must be created to restore access to the virtual disks from a Windows computer acting as a client to the storage subsystem.
