Description

The Get-IscsiSession cmdlet returns information about iSCSI sessions.

There is an association between the iSCSI session and the disk object. It is possible to return all disks connected by using a specific iSCSI session by running the following command:

PS C:\> Get-iSCSISession | Get-Disk

This command returns information about iSCSI sessions.

Optional 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.

Type:SwitchParameter
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[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Disk

Accepts a MSFT disk object as an input. The MSFT disk object is output from the Get-Disk cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InitiatorPort

Accepts a MSFT initiator port object as an input. The MSFT initiator port object is output from the Get-InitiatorPort cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InitiatorSideIdentifier

Specifies the initiator side identifier.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IscsiConnection

Accepts a MSFT iSCSI connection object as an input. The MSFT iSCSI connection object is output from the Get-IscsiConnection cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IscsiTarget

Accepts a MSFT iSCSI target object as an input. The MSFT iSCSI target object is output from the Get-IscsiTarget cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IscsiTargetPortal

Accepts a MSFT iSCSI target portal object as an input. The MSFT iSCSI target portal object is output from the Get-IscsiTargetPortal cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NumberOfConnections

Specifies the number of connections.

Type:UInt32[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SessionIdentifier

Specifies the session identifier.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-TargetSideIdentifier

Specifies the target side identifier.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
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
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
