ps_cimcommon_asjob

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

Specifies the bus type via which the device is connected to the system. The acceptable values for this parameter are: iSCSI, SAS, and FibreChannel.

Parameter Sets:FibreChannel, iSCSI, SAS
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227967 or Get-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227966 cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named

Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IsMultipathed

Specifies that the device is currently multipath enabled by Microsoft MPIO.

Type:Boolean[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
