Import-SCStorageProvider

Imports storage providers that are installed and registered on a VMM management server.

Syntax

Import-SCStorageProvider [-JobVariable <String>] [-PROTipID <Guid>] [-RunAsynchronously]
 [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Import-SCStorageProvider cmdlet imports storage providers that are installed and registered on a VMM management server.

Windows Server 2016 offers SMP as a storage provider model for storage array automation. SMP providers are installed locally on the same server running the VMM service. Credentials are not needed to connect to the provider (as with SMI-S providers). After the provider is installed, Import-SCStorageProvider imports those providers into Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).

Examples

Example 1: Import storage providers
