-StorageDisk<StorageDisk>

Specifies a disk on a Hyper-V or VMware ESX host that a virtual machine on that host can use instead of using a virtual hard disk. This disk is referred to as a pass-through disk (the corresponding VMware term is Raw Device Mapping, or RDM). The host disk is either a local hard disk or a logical unit on a Storage Area Network (SAN). VMM lets the virtual machine bypass the host's file system and access the pass-through disk directly.

TYPE OF HOST PASS-THROUGH DISK SUPPORT

------------ -------------------------

Hyper-V Supports pass-through disks

Supports converting a pass-through disk to a VHD

VMware ESX Supports pass-through disks (RDP), but not disk conversion

Citrix XenServer Does not support pass-through disks

<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

  • Requires a VMM storage disk object, which can be retrieved using the Get-SCStorageDisk cmdlet.

Examples

1: Format a new disk.

The first command generates a globally unique identifier (GUID) and stores the GUID string in variable $JobGroup. Subsequent commands that include this GUID are collected into a single job group.

The second command gets the host object nmaed VMHost01 and stores the object in the $VMHost variable.

The third command gets the storage logical unit object named LUN01 and stores the object in the $LU variable.

The fourth command registers LUN01 with VMHost01. Using the JobGroup parameter specifies tha this command will not run until just before the final command that includes the JobGroup with the same GUID.

The fifth command mounts LUN01 on VMHost01, performs a quick format on the volume, labels the volume "New Volume", and sets the mount point to S:\. Using the JobGroup parameter specifies tha this command will not run until just before the final command that includes the JobGroup with the same GUID.

The last command updates VMHost01 with the mounted storage disk. This command uses the JobGroup parameter to register and mount LUN01 prior to running Set-SCVMHost.


PS C:\> $JobGroup = [Guid]::NewGuid().ToString()PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01"PS C:\> $LU = Get-SCStorageLogicalUnit -Name "LUN01"PS C:\> Register-SCStorageLogicalUnit -StorageLogicalUnit $LU -VMHost $VMHost -JobGroup $JobGroupPS C:\> Mount-SCStorageDisk -QuickFormat -MasterBootRecord -VolumeLabel "New Volume" -StorageLogicalUnit $LU -MountPoint "S:\" -JobGroup $JobGroupPS C:\> Set-SCVMHost -VMHost $VMHost -JobGroup $JobGroup
