Description

The Resize-IscsiVirtualDisk cmdlet resizes a virtual disk either by expanding or compacting an existing virtual disk. Virtual disks that use the VHDX format can remain online while the cmdlet resizes them. If the cmdlet resizes an online disk, when the virtual disk is mapped to an iSCSI Target, initiators can continue to access the virtual disk even while the cmdlet resizes it. However, an initiator will not automatically see the resized virtual disk. To get access to the capacity of the expanded virtual disk, the initiator must use the Resize-Partition cmdlet to modify the volume hosted on the virtual disk.

This cmdlet can compact a disk only when the logical unit number (LUN) on the initiator side created some partitions on the LUN, and the compacting process shrinks the unallocated part of the LUN.

Examples

Example 1: Resize a virtual disk

PS C:\> Resize-IscsiVirtualDisk -Path "E:\temp\test06.vhdx" -Size 20GB

This command resizes the virtual disk at the path E:\temp\test06.vhdx to 20GB.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Accepts an iSCSI Virtual Disk object from the input pipeline.

Type:IscsiVirtualDisk
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Path

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

Type:String
Aliases:DevicePath
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SizeBytes

Specifies the cluster resource group network name, or cluster node name, if this cmdlet is run on a cluster configuration.

If you do not specify a value for this parameter, the cmdlet uses the local computer.

Type:UInt64
Aliases:Size
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-ComputerName

Specifies the computer name, or IP address, of the remote computer, if this cmdlet is run on a remote computer.

Specifies the cluster resource group network name, or cluster node name, if this cmdlet is run on a cluster configuration.

If you do not specify a value for this parameter, the cmdlet uses the local computer.

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

Specifies the credentials when connecting to a remote computer.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
