DESCRIPTION

The Update-StoragePool cmdlet updates the metadata of a Windows Server® 2012 storage pool to a Windows Server® 2012 R2 storage pool. If you upgrade Windows Server 2012 to Windows Server 2012 R2, storage pools hosted on that server continue to work, but new Storage Spaces functionality, such as storage tiers, is not available. This cmdlet enables new Storage Spaces functionality for a storage pool on a server that runs Windows Server 2012 R2.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Upgrade a storage pool by using a friendly name

PS C:\>Update-StoragePool -FriendlyName "Win8Pool32"

This command upgrades the storage pool that has the friendly name Win8Pool32.
