Description

The New-StorageSubsystemVirtualDisk cmdlet allows the creation of a VirtualDisk object on a storage subsystem that does not support creation of storage pools, or if its storage pool does not support virtual disk creation.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\> $stsubsys = (Get-StorageSubsystem)
PS C:\> New-StorageSubsystemVirtualDisk -StorageSubsystemUniqueId $stsubsys.UniqueID -FriendlyName "VirtualDisk01" -Size "5GB" -ProvisioningType Fixed

This example creates a Virtual Disk named VirtualDisk01 on the provided StorageSubsystem without the use of a Storage Pool

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
-StorageSubSystemFriendlyName

Specifies the friendly name of the storage subsystem. The friendly name may be defined by the user.

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

Specifies the name of the storage subsystem provided by the Storage Management.

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

Specifies an ID used to uniquely identify the storage subsystem in the system. The ID persists through reboots.

Type:String[]
Aliases:StorageSubsystemId
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
-FaultDomainAwareness

Specifies the default fault domain for new virtual disks created in this storage pool. The fault domain specifies at what level you want to be fault tolerant. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • PhysicalDisk
  • StorageScaleUnit
  • StorageChassis
  • StorageEnclosure
  • StorageRack
Type:FaultDomainType
Parameter Sets:PhysicalDisk, StorageEnclosure, StorageScaleUnit, StorageChassis, StorageRack
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-FriendlyName

Specifies a friendly name for a virtual disk. The friendly name may be defined by a user and is not guaranteed to be unique.

Type:String
Aliases:VirtualDiskFriendlyName
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Interleave

Specifies the interleave value to use during the creation of a storage tier. The interleave value represents the number of bytes that is written to a single physical disk. Therefore, Interleave * NumberOfColumns yields the size of one stripe of user data.

Type:UInt64
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IsEnclosureAware

Specifies that the enclosure supports SCSI Enclosure Services (SES), which is utilized for providing things like Slot location for a physical disk, as well as to manage LEDs on the disks for visual identification.

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

Specifies the number of columns to create.

Type:UInt16
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NumberOfDataCopies

Specifies the number of data copies to create.

Type:UInt16
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-OtherUsageDescription

Specifies the usage of this object.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ParityLayout

Specifies the parity layout to be used with the virtual disk to be created.

Type:ParityLayout
Parameter Sets:NonRotatedParity, RotatedParity
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PhysicalDiskRedundancy

Specifies the physical disk redundancy value to use during the creation of a virtual disk.

Type:UInt16
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ProvisioningType

Specifies the type of provisioning. The acceptable values for this parameter are: Unknown, Fixed, or Thin.

Type:ProvisioningType
Parameter Sets:Unknown, Thin, Fixed
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RequestNoSinglePointOfFailure

Requests that the virtual disk is created on hardware that has path redundancy to provide resilience to storage path faults. This cannot be guaranteed.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Size

Specifies the size of the partition to create. If not specified, then the number will default to Bytes. The acceptable values for this parameter are: Bytes, KB, MB, GB, or TB. The size may be defined by a user.

Type:UInt64
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
-Usage

Specifies the intended usage.

Type:Usage
Parameter Sets:Other, Unrestricted, ReservedForComputerSystem, ReservedForReplicationServices, ReservedForMigrationServices, LocalReplicaSource, RemoteReplicaSource, LocalReplicaTarget, RemoteReplicaTarget, LocalReplicaSourceOrTarget, RemoteReplicaSourceOrTarget, DeltaReplicaTarget, ElementComponent, ReservedAsPoolContributer, CompositeVolumeMember, CompositeVirtualDiskMember, ReservedForSparing
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-UseMaximumSize

Uses the maximum allowable size for this virtual disk.

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

Inputs

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

The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
