Description

The Enable-MSDSMAutomaticClaim cmdlet enables an Microsoft Device Specific Module (MSDSM) to automatically claim storage area network (SAN) disks for Microsoft Multipath I/O (MPIO) for a bus type.

You must specify a valid bus type, either serial attached storage (SAS) and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI). You can enable MSDSM to automatically claim both SAS and iSCSI disks. Run the cmdlet two times, one time for SAS, one time for iSCSI.

Examples

Example 1: Enable automatic claims for iSCSI
