DESCRIPTION

The New-StorageSubsystemVirtualDisk cmdlet allows the creation of a VirtualDisk object on a storage subsystem that does not support creation of storage pools, or if its storage pool does not support virtual disk creation.

EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\> $stsubsys = (Get-StorageSubsystem)
PS C:\> New-StorageSubsystemVirtualDisk -StorageSubsystemUniqueId $stsubsys.UniqueID -FriendlyName "VirtualDisk01" -Size "5GB" -ProvisioningType Fixed

This example creates a Virtual Disk named VirtualDisk01 on the provided StorageSubsystem without the use of a Storage Pool

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

-FaultDomainAwareness

Specifies the default fault domain for new virtual disks created in this storage pool. The fault domain specifies at what level you want to be fault tolerant. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • PhysicalDisk
  • StorageScaleUnit
  • StorageChassis
  • StorageEnclosure
  • StorageRack
Type: FaultDomainType
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 
Accepted values: PhysicalDisk, StorageEnclosure, StorageScaleUnit, StorageChassis, StorageRack

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

-FriendlyName

Specifies a friendly name for a virtual disk. The friendly name may be defined by a user and is not guaranteed to be unique.

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

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

-InputObject

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

Type: CimInstance[]

Aliases: 

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

-Interleave

Specifies the interleave value to use during the creation of a storage tier. The interleave value represents the number of bytes that is written to a single physical disk. Therefore, Interleave * NumberOfColumns yields the size of one stripe of user data.

Type: UInt64
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-IsEnclosureAware

Specifies that the enclosure supports SCSI Enclosure Services (SES), which is utilized for providing things like Slot location for a physical disk, as well as to manage LEDs on the disks for visual identification.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-NumberOfColumns

Specifies the number of columns to create.

Type: UInt16
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-NumberOfDataCopies

Specifies the number of data copies to create.

Type: UInt16
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

Accepted values: NonRotatedParity, RotatedParity

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

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
