New-SCStorageZone

Creates a zone in a zone set for a given fabric.

Syntax

New-SCStorageZone [-StorageZoneSet] <StorageZoneSet> [-AddZoneAlias <StorageZoneAlias[]>]
 [-AddZoneMembership <String[]>] [-Description <String>] [-JobVariable <String>] -Name <String>
 [-PROTipID <Guid>] [-RunAsynchronously] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-SCStorageZone cmdlet creates a zone in a zone set for a given fabric.

Examples

Example 1: Create a zone and commit it to the zone set

PS C:\> $ZoneSet = Get-SCStorageZoneSet -Name "ZoneSet01"
PS C:\> $Alias = Get-SCStorageZoneAlias -Name "MyArrayPorts"
PS C:\> $Members = @()
PS C:\> $Members += "D113ED3B8A310220"
PS C:\> $Members += "C003FF3B8A610000"
PS C:\> New-SCStorageZone -StorageZoneSet $ZoneSet -Name "MyZone" -Description "Zone for virtual machine host" -AddZoneAlias $Alias -AddZoneMembership $Members -ForceZoneSetActivation

The first command gets the zone set object named ZoneSet01, and then stores that object in the $ZoneSet variable.

The second command gets the storage zone alias named MyArrayPorts, and then stores that object in the $Alias variable.

The third command creates an array named $Members. The fourth and fifth commands populate the $Members array.

The final command creates a storage zone and commits the zone to the zone set stored in $ZoneSet.

Example 2: Create a zone without committing it to the zone set

PS C:\> $ZoneSet = Get-SCStorageZoneSet -Name "ZoneSet01"
PS C:\> $Members = @()
PS C:\> $Members += "D113ED3B8A310220"
PS C:\> $Members += "C003FF3B8A610000"
PS C:\> New-SCStorageZone -StorageZoneSet $ZoneSet -Name "MyZone" -Description "Zone for virtual machine host" -AddZoneMembership $Members

The first command gets the zone set object named ZoneSet01, and then stores that object in the $ZoneSet variable.

The second command creates an array named $members. The third and fourth commands populate the $Members array.

The last command creates a storage zone without committing it to the zone set.
