Detailed Description

The Disconnect-VirtualDisk cmdlet disconnects a virtual disk from the specified computer, revoking access to the virtual disk.

To disconnect a virtual disk from a remote computer, from a management node in a subsystem that is registered on the management node, specify the StorageNodeName parameter.

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 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: Disconnect a virtual disk by friendly name

This example disconnects a virtual disk named VirtualDisk01 from the local machine to prevent futher access to the virtual disk.


PS C:\> Disconnect-VirtualDisk -FriendlyName VirtualDisk01

Example 2: Disconnect a virtual disk from a remote computer from a management node

This command disconnects a virtual disk to from remote computer from a management node in a subsystem that is registered on the management node.


PS C:\> Get-StorageSubSystem –FriendlyName "Clustered Storage Spaces on Cluster01" | Get-VirtualDisk –FriendlyName "VDisk01" | Disconnect-VirtualDisk –StorageNodeName "ClustNode1"
