Description

The Disable-PhysicalDiskIndication cmdlet turns off the identification LED on the specified physical disk. The LED is typically used for visual identification of the location of a physical disk in an enclosure for removal and replacement operations. This cmdlet requires a storage enclosure that supports SCSI Enclosure Services (SES).

Examples

Example 1: Disable the identification LED on all physical disks in a pool

PS C:\>$StPool = (Get-StoragePool -FriendlyName "SpacePool")
PS C:\> Disable-PhysicalDiskIndication -StoragePool $StPool

The first command gets the storage poll named SpacePool by using the Get-StoragePool cmdlet. The command stores the pool in the $StPool variable.

The second command disables the identification LED on all physical disks associated with the storage pool in $StPool.
