Description

The Disable-MSDSMAutomaticClaim cmdlet stops a Microsoft Device Specific Module (MSDSM) from automatically claiming storage area network (SAN) disks for Microsoft Multipath I/O (MPIO) for a specified bus type.

The valid bus types are serial attached storage (SAS) and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI). This cmdlet does not change previously claimed SAN disks.

Examples

Example 1: Disable automatic claim for iSCSI

PS C:\> Disable-MSDSMAutomaticClaimSettings -BusType "iSCSI"

This command stops MSDSM from automatically claiming SAN disks for MPIO for iSCSI bus types. The command does not affect previously claimed disks.

The command does not affect the settings for an SAS bus type. If you want to disable automatic claims for both bus types, use the cmdlet again and specify SAS.
