Add-TargetPortToMaskingSet

Adds one or more target ports to a specified masking set, allowing a connection between the target ports, and any virtual disks and initiator IDs that the masking set contains.

Description

The Add-TargetPortToMaskingSet cmdlet adds one or more target ports to a specified masking set, allowing a connection between the target ports, and any virtual disks and initiator IDs that the masking set contains. All target ports must use the same connection type (for example iSCSI or Fibre Channel).

Note: This cmdlet works only on storage subsystems that support multi-port per view selection (MaskingPortsPerView = 3). To view the MaskingPortsPerView property, type the following cmdlets: Get-StorageSubSystem | Format-Table -Property FriendlyName, MaskingPortsPerView

Examples

Example 1: Add a target port

PS C:\> $TargetPortObject = Get-TargetPort
PS C:\> $subSystem = Get-StorageSubSystem SANArray1
PS C:\> $maskingSet = Get-MaskingSet "Cluster1MaskingSet"
PS C:\> $subSystem | Get-TargetPort | Where-Object ConnectionType -eq "Fibre Channel" | Format-Table -AutoSize FriendlyName, PortAddress
FriendlyName          PortAddress
------------          -----------
Stor1_FCTargetPort.0a 500A098387995A75
Stor1_FCTargetPort.0b 500A098487995A75
Stor1_FCTargetPort.0c 500A098187995A75
Stor1_FCTargetPort.0d 500A098287995A75


PS C:\> $maskingSet | Add-TargetPortToMaskingSet -TargetPortAddresses "500A098187995A75"

This example demonstrates enumerating the Fibre Channel target ports on a given storage subsystem, and adding one of the target ports to an existing 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 assign a target port.

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

Specifies the UniqueID of the masking set to which you want to assign a target port.

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
-PassThru

Specifies that the cmdlet should output an object representing the masking set to which it added target ports. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

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

Specifies one or more target port addresses, which you can view by looking at the PortAddress property returned by the Get-TargetPort cmdlet. The target port addresses will be added to the masking set.

Type:String[]
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 a MaskingSet object 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 a target port.
