Description

The Set-StorageProvider cmdlet modifies whether to enable the symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) provider cache. Specify a value of Manual for the RemoteSubsystemCacheMode parameter to enable caching. If you enable the cache on the management node that manages storage on remote computers or clusters, the management node caches remote objects. This caching can improve enumeration operations, such as the Get-StoragePool cmdlet or the New-VirtualDisk cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Enable caching for a provider

PS C:\>Set-StorageProvider -ProviderName "Provider87" -RemoteSubSystemCacheMode Manual

This command enables caching for a provider.

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
-ProviderName

Specifies an array of names of providers. The cmdlet modifies the providers that you specify.

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

Specifies an array of unique IDs of providers. The cmdlet modifies the providers that you specify.

Type:String[]
Aliases:ProviderId
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 object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

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

Specifies the cache mode for a remote subsystem. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Disable
  • Manual
Type:RemoteSubsystemCacheMode
Parameter Sets:Disabled, ManualDiscovery
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

Inputs

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

You can use the pipeline operator to pass one or more MSFT_StorageProvider objects to the InputObject parameter.

Outputs

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

If you use the PassThru parameter, this cmdlet outputs an object that represents the storage provider for which you changed settings
