New-​Azure​Stor​Simple​Storage​Account​Credential

Adds an Azure storage access credential.

Syntax

New-AzureStorSimpleStorageAccountCredential
   [-Endpoint <String>]
   [-Profile <AzureSMProfile>]
   -StorageAccountKey <String>
   -StorageAccountName <String>
   -UseSSL <Boolean>
   [-WaitForComplete]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-AzureStorSimpleStorageAccountCredential cmdlet adds an Azure storage access credential to StorSimple manager for use by StorSimple OneSDK cmdlets. Most of the StorSimple OneSDK cmdlets deal with entities that are eventually tied to a specific storage account, such as volumes, volume containers, backups, and backup policies. For some cmdlets, you must provide the credentials of the storage account in use. A storage account credential is an access object created in OneSDK that points to an existing Azure storage account. You provide the name and access key of an existing storage account to create a storage account credential. You can then use that credential object with other cmdlets.

This cmdlet uses the registration key that you provide when you select the resource by using the Select-AzureStorSimpleResource cmdlet. Be sure that value is correct to avoid encryption failure. To modify the registration key to a correct value, use Select-AzureStorSimpleResource.

Examples

This command creates a storage access credential for the specified storage account. This command specifies the WaitForComplete parameter, and, so, the cmdlet waits until the task finishes to return control to the console.

Example 2: Create a credential and query that status of the task

PS C:\>New-AzureStorSimpleStorageAccountCredential -Name "ContosoAccount08" -Key "6BlMpSVrCQVQy3iOpkxiyY8uk/e3PiHIhadxV4qpPlKInr/eRFrGcWKDrfNC1IHj6oh0If/h3rALdZ0zuaf9cQ==" -UseSSL $True

VERBOSE: ClientRequestId: 6104a834-ea57-4687-8e0b-1d97dc1c038b_PS
VERBOSE: Found storage account with name : ContosoAccount08
VERBOSE: Storage credential verification succeeded.

53816d8d-a8b5-4c1d-a177-e59007608d6d
VERBOSE: The create task is submitted successfully. Please use the command Get-AzureStorSimpleTask -InstanceId
53816d8d-a8b5-4c1d-a177-e59007608d6d for tracking the task's status

The first command creates a storage access credential for the specified storage account. The command returns a task ID.

The second command queries the status of the task by using the Get-AzureStorSimpleTask cmdlet. The command specifies the task ID from the first command.

Example 3: Create a credential to use with another cmdlet

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorSimpleStorageAccountCredential -Name "ContosoAccount09" | New-AzureStorSimpleDeviceVolumeContainer -Name "VC03" -DeviceName "Contoso63-AppVm" -BandWidthRate 256 -EncryptionEnabled $True -EncryptionKey "<your encryption key>" -WaitForComplete
