Add-IscsiVirtualDiskTargetMapping

Assigns a virtual disk to an iSCSI target.

Syntax

Add-IscsiVirtualDiskTargetMapping
   [-TargetName] <String>
   [-Path] <String>
   [-Lun <Int32>]
   [-ComputerName <String>]
   [-Credential <PSCredential>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-IscsiVirtualDiskTargetMapping cmdlet assigns a virtual disk to an iSCSI target. Once a virtual disk has been assigned to a target, and after the iSCSI initiator connects to that target, the iSCSI initiator can access the virtual disk. All of the virtual disks assigned to the same iSCSI target can be accessed by the connected iSCSI initiator.

Examples

Example 1: Associate a VHD with a target

PS C:\> Add-IscsiVirtualDiskTargetMapping -TargetName "TargetOne" -DevicePath "E:\Temp\vhd1.vhdx"

This example associates the VHD with the path E:\Temp\vhd1.vhdx to the target named TargetOne.

Example 2: Associate a VHD with a target and set the LUN

PS C:\> Add-IscsiVirtualDiskTargetMapping -TargetName "TargetOne" -DevicePath "E:\Temp\vhd1.vhdx" -Lun 0

This example associates the VHD with the path E:\Temp\vhd1.vhdx to the target named TargetOne, and sets the LUN to 0. It is important that the LUN number for a given target is unique.

Example 3: Associate a ramdisk with a target

PS C:\> Add-IscsiVirtualDiskTargetMapping -TargetName "TestTarget" -Path "ramdisk:test.vhdx"

This example assigns the ramdisk called test to the target object named TestTarget. If the initiator connects to the TestTarget, it can access the RAMdisk.

Required Parameters

-Path

Specifies the path of the virtual hard disk (VHD) file that is associated with the iSCSI virtual disk. Filter the iSCSI Virtual Disk object by using this parameter.
