Get-ClusterAvailableDisk

Gets information about the disks that can support Failover Clustering and are visible to all nodes, but are not yet part of the set of clustered disks.

Syntax

Get-ClusterAvailableDisk
   [[-Cluster] <String>]
   [-Disk <CimInstance>]
   [-All]
   [-InputObject <PSObject>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-ClusterAvailableDisk cmdlet gets information about the disks that can support Failover Clustering and are visible to all nodes, but are not yet part of the set of clustered disks.

If a disk is unexpectedly missing from the list of disks that are available for use in the cluster, then make sure that the configuration of the storage allows the operating system on all clustered servers to recognize and mount the disk as needed. The disk must be a basic disk, not a dynamic disk, and should not be exposed to any other servers.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Get-ClusterAvailableDisk
Cluster     : cluster1 
Id          : 2654136007 
Name        : Cluster Disk 4 
Number      : 7 
ScsiAddress : 50331651 
Size        : 2097152000 
Partitions  : {\\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\Harddisk7\Partition1\} 
 
Cluster     : cluster1 
Id          : 2654136015 
Name        : Cluster Disk 5 
Number      : 9 
ScsiAddress : 67108867 
Size        : 2097152000 
Partitions  : {\\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\Harddisk9\Partition1\}

This example lists the disks that are ready to be added to the cluster.

Example 2

PS C:\> Get-ClusterAvailableDisk | Add-ClusterDisk
Name                State               Group               ResourceType 
----                -----               -----               ------------ 
Cluster Disk 4      OnlinePending       Available Storage   Physical Disk 
Cluster Disk 5      OnlinePending       Available Storage   Physical Disk

This example adds all disks that are ready to be added to the local cluster.
