DESCRIPTION

The Export-IscsiVirtualDiskSnapshot cmdlet exports a snapshot. This cmdlet creates a virtual disk object and associates the snapshot with it. Once the virtual disk object adds to a target, the initiator can access the snapshot.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Expose a snapshot as a virtual disk

PS C:\> Export-IscsiVirtualDiskSnapshot -Snapshot "{E9A5BA03-85B9-40CA-85DF-DC1695690B40}"

This example exposes a snapshot with the Id {E9A5BA03-85B9-40CA-85DF-DC1695690B40} as a virtual disk object. To access it, assign the virtual disk with path \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy{41667F16-0FDD-11E1-BA2A-0010184F53D6}\vhd01 to a target.
