Examples

Example 1: Add a storage provider by its FQDN

The first command gets the RunAs account named RunAsAccount01, and then stores it in the $RunAsAcct variable.

The second command adds the storage provider named StorProv01.Contoso.com using the RunAs account stored in $RunAsAcct.


PS C:\> $RunAsAcct = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount01"
PS C:\> Add-SCStorageProvider -NetworkDeviceName "http://StorProv01.Contoso.com" -TCPPort 5988 -Name "StorProv01.Contoso.com" -RunAsAccount $RunAsAcct

Example 2: Add a storage provider by its IP address

The first command gets the RunAs account named RunAsAccount02, and then stores it in the $RunAsAcct variable.

The second command adds the storage provider with an IP address of 10.10.12.23 using the RunAsAccount stored in $RunAsAcct.


PS C:\> $RunAsAcct = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount02"
PS C:\> Add-SCStorageProvider -NetworkDeviceName "http://10.10.12.23" -TCPPort 5988 -Name "StorProv02.Contoso.com" -RunAsAccount $RunAsAcct02

Example 3: Add a WMI SMI-S storage provider

The first command gets the Run As account object named AdminRAA, and then stores the object in the $RunAsAccount variable.

The second command adds the storage provider with the name StorageProvider01 using the Run Account stored in $RunAsAccount. The SmisWmi parameter indicates that this is an SMI-S storage provider.


PS C:\> $RunAsAccount = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "AdminRAA"
PS C:\> Add-SCStorageProvider -SmisWmi -Name "StorageProvider01" -RunAsAccount $RunAsAccount -ComputerName "StorageHost01.Contoso.com"
