Last Updated: 3/8/2017

SYNOPSIS

Gets the minimum and maximum possible sizes of a storage tier.

SYNTAX

ByFriendlyName (Default)

Get-StorageTierSupportedSize [-FriendlyName] <String[]> [-ResiliencySettingName <String>]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [<CommonParameters>]

ByUniqueId

Get-StorageTierSupportedSize -UniqueId <String[]> [-ResiliencySettingName <String>]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [<CommonParameters>]

InputObject (cdxml)

Get-StorageTierSupportedSize -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-ResiliencySettingName <String>]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-StorageTierSupportSize cmdlet gets the minimum and maximum possible sizes of a storage tier. Use this information to create or extend a virtual disk with the specified resiliency setting on a Windows Storage subsystem.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get the size estimate for a mirror space

PS C:\> Get-StorageTierSupportedSize -FriendlyName "*SSD*" -ResiliencySettingName "Mirror" 
SupportedSizes                  TierSizeMin                  TierSizeMax                  TierSizeDivisor
--------------                  -----------                  -----------                  ---------------
{}                              4294967296                   2130303778816                4294967296
{}                              4294967296                   2130303778816                4294967296

This command gets the storage tier supported size estimates for capacity of a Fast (SSD) tier for a mirror space by using the FriendlyName and ResiliencySettingName parameters.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-FriendlyName

Specifies an array of friendly names. The cmdlet gets the storage tiers that match the names that you specify.

Type: String[]
Parameter Sets: ByFriendlyName
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-InputObject

Specifies the input object that is used in a pipeline command.

Type: CimInstance[]
Parameter Sets: InputObject (cdxml)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ResiliencySettingName

Specifies the name of the desired resiliency setting, for example, Simple, Mirror, or Parity.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Name

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

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.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-UniqueId

Specifies an array of unique IDs, as strings.

Type: String[]
Parameter Sets: ByUniqueId
Aliases: Id

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

CommonParameters

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

INPUTS

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_StorageTier

You can use the pipeline operator to pass an MSFT_StorageTier object to the InputObject parameter to get the storage tier supported size associated with the StorageTier object.

OUTPUTS

System.Management.Automation.PSCustomObject

This cmdlet returns an object that lists the minimum and maximum amounts of space that the specified type of virtual disk could use in the specified storage tier as well as the tier size divisor. These values are System.UInt64 objects.
