Requests an SMB client to move the associated SMB connection to a specified cluster node.

Syntax

Move-SmbWitnessClient
    [-ClientName] <String>
    [-DestinationNode] <String>
    [[-NetworkName] <String>]
    [-AsJob]
    [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
    [-Confirm]
    [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
    [-WhatIf]
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Move-SmbWitnessClient cmdlet requests the specified Server Message Block (SMB) client to move the associated SMB connection from the current cluster node to the specified cluster node. Only SMB connections to a Distributed Server Name can be moved.

Examples

Example 1: Move a client

PS C:\>Move-SmbWitnessClient -ClientName "Server01" -DestinationNode "FileServer22" -NetworkName "NetName07"

This example requests that the SMB client named Server01 move the associated SMB connection from the current cluster node to the cluster node named FileServer22. This cmdlet does not return any output. The Get-SmbOpenFile cmdlet can be used to validate the client that is moved. The specified SMB client must have an active connection with the cluster for this cmdlet to be effective.

Required Parameters

-ClientName

Specifies the SMB client by name.

Type:String

-DestinationNode

Specifies the destination cluster node by name.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
