Search-SmisProvider

Search-SmisProvider

Searches for a list of SMI-S providers.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Search0
Search-SmisProvider [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Search-SmisProvider cmdlet searches for Storage Management Initiative - Specification (SMI-S) providers available on the same subnet as your server as long as they are advertised through the Service Location Protocol v2 (SLPv2). The cmdlet returns a list of Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) that you can use with other cmdlets to register or remove a provider. If the cmdlet finds no SMI-S providers, it returns nothing.

To register a provider, use the Register-SmisProvider cmdlet. To remove a registered provider so that it can no longer be used, use the Unregister-SmisProvider cmdlet. Both cmdlets take a URI as input.
