Get-disk select friendlyname firmware version
Yesterday I showed how to get the disk, partition and logical disk information using CIM. Today I want to show more diskinfo techniques. Underneath the covers it uses CIM — just different classes. Some of the property names are different. A question of the forums was asking about discovering disk information. There is another way.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Using PowerShell - Collecting Information About Computers (Processor,Disks,RAM ...)

The Get-StorageFirmwareInformation cmdlet gets information about firmware on storage objects. On Non-Volatile Memory Express NVMe devices, it lists the number of firmware slots, the active firmware image, and slots that are writeable. This command uses the Get-PhysicalDisk cmdlet to get all physical disks in the system, and uses the pipeline operator to pass them to Get-StorageFirmwareInformation to get the firmware information for each disk.
Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. Specifies an ID used to uniquely identify a Disk object in the system. The ID persists through restarts.

Look up hard disk information with PowerShell
I got new hardware for my lab today and needed to install Server Hyper-V on it. I needed to be able to install Windows via a USB thumb drive and I didn't want to use anything other than what comes with Windows. I used PowerShell for almost all of this.
Question: You need to check firmware versions on the disks of your Windows Server and Windows 8 computers and above. How can you do this? Select the friendly name and the firmware version. This command appears here:.
Determining Disk Type with Get-PhysicalDisk
The modern versions of Windows and other operating systems can use one of two standards to store information about hard disk partitions structures. In Microsoft Windows, the partition table reserves entries, which allows you to create up to partitions. In order to determine which partition table is used by your disk GPT or MBR , there are three useful, simple and accessible tools: Disk Management snap-in, command-line utility Diskpart and PowerShell. To get the partition table type for each of the disks that are available in the system, run a Command Prompt with Administrator privileges and execute the following commands one by one:. Note the last column in the results of the command list disk. You can get the partition table style using Windows PowerShell. Run PowerShell console as Administrator and execute the following cmdlet:.
Find disk firmware versions using PowerShell
Windows Storage Spaces Storage Spaces aka virtual disks are within a Storage Pool and define resiliency, size and various parameters related to storage performance. Virtual Disks can be defined or tuned specifically to different workloads. Disk failures are also repaired within a Storage Pool Microsoft Storage Spaces structure where disk drives are grouped into a group or pool. Disk failures are localized and repaired within each pool. For the following example, we will not include all the disks available.
The Get-StorageFirmwareInformation cmdlet gets information about firmware on storage objects. On Non-Volatile Memory Express NVMe devices, it lists the number of firmware slots, the active firmware image, and slots that are writeable. This command uses the Get-PhysicalDisk cmdlet to get all physical disks in the system, and uses the pipeline operator to pass them to Get-StorageFirmwareInformation to get the firmware information for each disk.

GPT or MBR: How to Check HDD Partition Table Style
As usual in virtual environment Storage Spaces was unable to detect MediaType correctly. For some reason mysql was causing heavy read IO — to iops. I created a 4GB read-only cache. After 30 minutes cache was warmed and mysql was no longer stressing the storage array.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: How to run disk defrag via powershell - Slow Read and writes on disks - resolved
Ta da! Like magic, you can now determine your disk types! By default, just running Get-PhysicalDisk will not get you the MediaType, so be sure to select it specifically. You can go home now and show off your new and powerful knowledge to your friends and neighbors. Knowing the class, here is how you would query that information with PowerShell:.
