Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>New-VirtualDiskClone -VirtualDiskFriendlyName "SQLData5" -TargetVirtualDiskName "SQLData5Clone" -TargetStoragePoolName "ClonePool"

This example creates a full clone of the specified Virtual Disk object. Note: This cmdlet requires support from the Storage Management Provider. This cmdlet returns the Virtual Disk object for the newly clone.

Required Parameters

-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
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input: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
-VirtualDiskFriendlyName

Specifies the friendly name of the virtual disk to be snapshot. The friendly name may be defined by a user.

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

Specifies the name of the virtual disk. This parameter is typically read-only. This parameter is not equivalent to the VirtualDiskFriendlyName parameter that can be set by a user.

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

Specifies the unique ID of the virtual disk to be snapshot.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-TargetStoragePoolName

Specifiess the name of the target storage pool. The name of the target storage pool that contains the virtual disk to be snapshot.

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
