Description

The Disable-StorageEnclosureIdentification cmdlet turns off the identification LED on the specified storage enclosure and, optionally, on the slots for individual disks. Administrators typically use LEDs to locate a physical disk in an enclosure for removal or replacement. This cmdlet requires a storage enclosure that supports SCSI Enclosure Services (SES).

Examples

Example 1: Disable identification of an enclosure

PS C:\>Disable-StorageEnclosureIdentification -FriendlyName "E11"

This command disables identification for the enclosure named E11.

Example 2: Disable identification of specified slot numbers

PS C:\>Disable-StorageEnclosureIdentification -FriendlyName "E11" -SlotNumbers @(20, 14)

This command disables identification for the slots numbers 20 and 14 of the enclosure named E11.

Required Parameters

-FriendlyName

Specifies an array of friendly names. This cmdlet turns off the identification LEDs for the enclosures that the names specify or for slots that belong to the specified enclosures.

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

Specifies an array of IDs. This cmdlet turns off the identification LEDsfor the enclosures that the IDs specify or for slots that belong to the specified enclosures.

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
-PassThru

Returns an array of StorageEnclosure objects. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

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

Specifies an array of slot numbers. This cmdlet turns off the identification LEDs for the slots that the numbers identify.

Type:UInt32[]
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

Outputs

MSFT_StorageEnclosure[]

This cmdlet does not generate any output. If you specify the Passthru parameter, the cmdlet returns an array of MSFT_StorageEnclosure objects.
