Examples

Example 1 – Display physical disks

This example displays all physical disks available to Storage Spaces on the local computer.


PS C:\> Get-SpacesPhysicalDisk
FriendlyName        CanPool             OperationalStatus   HealthStatus        Usage                              Size

PhysicalDisk5 True OK Healthy Auto-Select 1000 GB
PhysicalDisk6 True OK Healthy Auto-Select 1000 GB
PhysicalDisk0 False OK Healthy Auto-Select 40 GB

Example 2 – Display physical disks not in a pool

This example displays physical disks that are not currently allocated to a storage pool.


PS C:\> Get-SpacesPhysicalDisk -OnlyListAvailable

Example 3 – Display physical disks common to the local computer and remote servers

This example displays all common physical disks between the local computer and two servers, BigOrange1 and BigOrange2.


PS C:\> Get-SpacesPhysicalDisk -ServerToCompare BigOrange1, BigOrange2

Example 4 – Display physical disks common to a failover cluster

This example displays all common physical disks among nodes in cluster named DeepSpaceCluster.
