Search-SmisProvider

Last Updated: 4/3/2017

SYNOPSIS

Searches for a list of SMI-S providers.

SYNTAX

Search-SmisProvider [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [<CommonParameters>]

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.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Search for an SMI-S provider

PS C:\>Search-SmisProvider

This command searches for all SMI-S providers on the same subnet as the server.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-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.

-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.
