    Detailed Description

    This cmdlet modifies settings of Dell EMC Isilon storage systems. When you modify storage system settings, the cmdlet automatically rescans storage systems.

    To modify settings, enter the necessary parameters with new values. The parameters that you omit will remain unchanged.

    Set-VBRIsilonHost Tip:

    You can specify the scope of volumes that you want to rescan with the VBRVolumeScanType parameter.

    Run the Get-VBRIsilonInfrastructureVolume cmdlet to get an array of volumes from Dell EMC Isilon storage systems.

    Examples

    Example 1. Excluding Dell EMC Isilon Volumes from Rescan

    This example shows how to exclude the Isilon Storage Dell EMC Isilon volumes from rescan.

    $storage = Get-VBRIsilonHost -Name "Isilon Storage"

    $volumes = Get-VBRIsilonInfrastructureVolume -Name "Volume4", "Volume5"

    Set-VBRIsilonHost -Host $storage -NASVolumeScanType Exclude -NASExcludedVolume $volumes

    Perform the following steps:

    1. Run the Get-VBRIsilonHost cmdlet. Provide the Name parameter value. Save the result to the $storage variable.
    2. Run the Get-VBRIsilonInfrastructureVolume cmdlet. Provide the Name parameter value. Save the result to the $volumes variable.
    3. Run the Set-VBRIsilonHost cmdlet. Specify the following settings:
    • Set the $storage variable as the Host parameter value.
    • Specify the NASVolumeScanType parameter value.
    • Set the $volumes variable as the NASExcludedVolume parameter value.

    Example 2. Rescanning All Dell EMC Isilon Volumes

    This example shows how to rescan all volumes added to the Isilon Storage Dell EMC Isilon storage system.

    $storage = Get-VBRIsilonHost -Name "Isilon Storage"

    $volumes = Get-VBRIsilonInfrastructureVolume -Host $storage

    Set-VBRIsilonHost -Host $storage -VolumeScanType Include -Included $volumes

    Perform the following steps:

    1. Run the Get-VBRIsilonHost cmdlet. Provide the Name parameter value. Save the result to the $storage variable.
    2. Run the Get-VBRIsilonInfrastructureVolume cmdlet. Provide the Host parameter value. Save the result to the $volumes variable.
    3. Run the Set-VBRIsilonHost cmdlet. Specify the following settings:
    • Set the $storage variable as the Host parameter value.
    • Specify the VolumeScanType parameter value.
    • Set the $volumes variable as the NASIncludedVolume parameter value.
