Get-SmbWitnessClient

Updated: August 15, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Get-SmbWitnessClient

Retrieves information about the Server Message Block (SMB) clients connected to the SMB witness servers in a cluster.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Query (cdxml)
Get-SmbWitnessClient [[-ClientName] <String[]> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-State <State[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-SmbWitnessClient cmdlet retrieves information about Server Message Block (SMB) witness client registrations with SMB witness servers in a failover cluster. SMB witness clients can register for notification for multiple resources in the failover cluster, so there may be multiple entries for the same SMB witness client.

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.
