Description

The New-SCStorageLogicalUnit cmdlet creates a logical unit from unallocated capacity in a storage pool.

Examples

Example 1: Create a copy of an existing logical unit

PS C:\> $SourceLU = Get-SCStorageLogicalUnit -Name "LUN01"
PS C:\> New-SCStorageLogicalUnit -SetLogicalUnitCopySource -StorageLogicalUnit $SourceLU -Name "NewLU" -LogicalUnitCopyMethod Clone

The first command gets the storage logical unit object named LUN01 and stores the object in the $SourceLU variable.

The second command creates a new logical unit named NewLU by cloning LUN01.
