Enables MSDSM to automatically claim SAN disks for MPIO.


      [-BusType] <String>


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 need to 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 twice, once for SAS, once for iSCSI.


Example 1: Enable automatic claims for iSCSI

PS C:\> Enable-MSDSMAutomaticClaim -BusType iSCSI

This command enables MSDSM to automatically claim resources with an iSCSI bus type. Specify SAS instead of iSCSI to enable for an SAS bus type.
