Note: This cmdlet is deprecated and might be removed in a future release. We recommend that you do not use this cmdlet.

The Mount-IscsiVirtualDiskSnapshot cmdlet mounts a snapshot locally. This cmdlet operates on snapshots in the virtual disk 1.0 (VHD) format only.

Mounting a snapshot locally exposes the snapshot as a disk to the local computer. Use diskmgmt.msc or cmdlets to bring the disk online.
