Description

The Add-InitiatorIdToMaskingSet cmdlet adds an initiator ID to an existing masking set, granting the host associated with the initiator ID access to the virtual disk and target port resources defined in the masking set.

Examples

Example 1: Adding an InitiatorID to a masking set by masking set object

PS C:\> $fcPorts = Get-InitiatorPort -CimSession Srv1 -ConnectionType FibreChannel
PS C:\> $maskingSet = Get-MaskingSet Cluster1MaskingSet
PS C:\> $fcPorts.NodeAddress 2000001b328d33cd2001001b32ad33cd
PS C:\> $maskingSet | Add-InitiatorIdToMaskingSet -InitiatorIds $fcPorts.NodeAddress

This example shows getting Fibre Channel initiator ports from the Srv1 computer, then getting the masking set object for the Cluster1MaskingSet, then enabling Srv1 access to all virtual disks defined in the masking set.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Specifies the input object that is used in a pipeline command.

Type:CimInstance[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MaskingSetFriendlyName

Specifies the friendly name of the masking set to which you want to add an initiator ID.

Type:String[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MaskingSetUniqueId

Specifies the unique ID of the masking set to which you want to add an initiator ID.

Type:String[]
Aliases:Id
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: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.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-HostType

Specifies the host operating system or other host environmental factors that may influence the behavior that the storage system should have when showing a virtual disk to an initiator.

Type:HostType
Parameter Sets:Unknown, Other, Standard, Solaris, HPUX, OpenVMS, Tru64, Netware, Sequent, AIX, DGUX, Dynix, Irix, CiscoISCSIStorageRouter, Linux, MicrosoftWindows, OS400, TRESPASS, HIUX, VMwareESXi, MicrosoftWindowsServer2008, MicrosoftWindowsServer2003
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InitiatorIds

Specifies one or more initiator IDs on which this cmdlet acts. The initiator IDs will be added to this masking set. Note: The initiator IDs do not need to be displayed in the output of the Get-InitiatorId cmdlet to be added to a masking set.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Specifies that the cmdlet should output an object representing the masking setto which it added an initiator ID. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
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.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_MaskingSet

You can pipe one or more MSFT_MaskingSet objects to the InputObject parameter.

Outputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/Storage/MSFT_MaskingSet

If you specify the Passthru parameter, this cmdlet outputs an object that represents the masking set to which you added an initiator ID.
