Description

The New-SCStoragePool cmdlet creates a storage pool.

Examples

Example 1: Create pool from physical disks

PS C:\> $Disks = Get-SCStoragePhysicalDisk | where {$_.CanPool -eq $True}
PS C:\> New-SCStoragePool -StoragePhysicalDisk $Disks -Name "Pool01"

The first command gets all physical disk objects that can be pooled and stores the objects in the $Disks variable.

The second command creates a storage pool named Pool01 with the physical disks stored in $Disks.
