SYNTAX

ByFriendlyName (Default)

Enable-StorageEnclosureIdentification [-FriendlyName] <String[]> [-SlotNumbers <UInt32[]>]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-PassThru] [<CommonParameters>]

ByUniqueId

Enable-StorageEnclosureIdentification -UniqueId <String[]> [-SlotNumbers <UInt32[]>]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-PassThru] [<CommonParameters>]

InputObject (cdxml)

 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-PassThru] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Enable-StorageEnclosureIdentification cmdlet enables the identification LED on the specified storage enclosure and, optionally, on the slots for individual disks. Administrators typically use LEDs to locate a physical disk in an enclosure for removal or replacement. This cmdlet requires a storage enclosure that supports SCSI Enclosure Services (SES).

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Enable identification of an enclosure

PS C:\>Enable-StorageEnclosureIdentification -FriendlyName "E11"

This command enables identification for the enclosure named E11.

Example 2: Enable identification of specified slot numbers

PS C:\>Enable-StorageEnclosureIdentification -FriendlyName "E11" -SlotNumbers @(20, 14)

This command enables identification for the slots numbers 20 and 14 of the enclosure named E11.

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. This cmdlet turns on the identification LED for the enclosures that the names specify or for slots that belong to the specified enclosures.

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

-PassThru

Returns an array of StorageEnclosure objects. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-SlotNumbers

Specifies an array of slot numbers. This cmdlet turns on the identification LEDs for the slots that the numbers identify.

Type: UInt32[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
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 IDs. This cmdlet turns on the identification LED for the enclosures that the IDs specify or for slots that belong to the specified enclosures.

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

OUTPUTS

MSFT_StorageEnclosure[]

This cmdlet does not generate any output by default. If you specify the PassThru parameter, the cmdlet returns an array of MSFT_StorageEnclosure objects.
