Updated: June 4, 2014

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Server 2012 R2

Update-HostStorageCache

Initiates an update on the host storage cache to reflect the current status of storage.

Syntax

Parameter Set: UpdateHostStorageCache2
Update-HostStorageCache [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Update-HostStorageCache cmdlet initiates an update on the host storage cache to reflect the current status of storage. This is equivalent to a VDS Rescan, in that it will re-enumerate Disk, Partition, and Volume objects.

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.

-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.
