One the new features in the Microsoft iSCSI Software Target 3.3 (included in Windows Storage Server 2008 R2) is the inclusion of PowerShell cmdlets for management. In this blog post, we will examine the details of the cmdlets available to manage targets and their associated virtual disks.
Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 is also now available to MSDN and TechNet subscribers for evaluation. This means subscribers can now use the Microsoft iSCSI Target 3.3 for Development, Test and all other non-production purposes. Find below the information from the MSDN/TechNet site where you download the bits.
Please find in the table below my “Extended Edition” of the mapping of the CLUSTER.EXE commands (including parameters) to PowerShell cmdlets, as they exist in Windows Server 2008 R2. I also added below a basic class diagram showing the main entities, attributes and methods involved. Below the table, you can also find a list of new PowerShell cmdlets that have no equivalent in the old CLUSTER.EXE.
