Description

The Get-InitiatorId cmdlet gets the InitiatorID objects for the specified iSCSI initiators.

Examples

Example 1: Get all InitiatorIDs

PS C:\>Get-InitiatorID

This example gets and displays all iSCSI initiator IDs on the computer.

Example 2: Get the storage providers for each InitiatorID

PS C:\>Get-InitiatorId | Get-StorageSubSystem | Get-StorageProvider

This example gets and displays the storage providers for each InitiatorID by piping the output from the Get-InitiatorId cmdlet to the Get-StorageSubSystem cmdlet, and then piping that cmdlet's output to the Get-StorageProvider cmdlet.

Example 3:Get the InitatorID objects for a masking set

PS C:\>Get-InitiatorId -MaskingSet (Get-MaskingSet -FriendlyName *EQLV1)

This example uses the Get-MaskingSet cmdlet to get the masking set with a friendly name that ends with EQLV1, and then gets all associated InitiatorID objects.

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
-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. If the HostType property is blank for the object you want to get, omit this parameter.

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:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InitiatorAddress

Specifies the address of the InitiatorID object you want to get. These are the port addresses of the hosts to which the virtual disks will be made available.

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

Gets the InitiatorID objects associated with the specified MaskingSet object. Enter a MaskingSet CIM object, which is exposed by the Get-MaskingSet cmdlet.

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

Gets the InitiatorID objects associated with the specified StorageSubsystem object. Enter a StorageSubsystem CIM object, which is exposed by the Get-StorageSubSystem cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
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
-UniqueId

Specifies the UniqueID(s) of the InitiatorID(s) you want to get. Separate multiple UniqueIDs with commas, and enclose brackets in quotation marks.

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

Gets the InitiatorID objects associated with the specified VirtualDisk object. Enter a VirtualDisk CIM object, which is exposed by the Get-VirtualDisk cmdlet.

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

Inputs

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

You can pipe a MaskingSet object to the MaskingSet parameter.

Inputs

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

You can pipe a StorageSubsystem object to the StorageSubsystem parameter.

Inputs

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

You can pipe a VirtualDisk object to the VirtualDisk parameter.

Outputs

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

This cmdlet returns an object that represents an initiator ID.
