Can you try using


Re: Get-NcVolOption and Set-NcVolOption for vol Comment

You can use the Update-NcVol cmdlet for this.  The example for that cmdlet describes this exact scenario (updating the comment field).  Or, as Vinith mentions, Invoke-NcSsh works just as well.

--------------  Example 1 --------------

C:\PS>$q = Get-NcVol -Template

Initialize-NcObjectProperty $q VolumeIdAttributes

$q.VolumeIdAttributes.Name = "vol1|vol2"

$q.VolumeIdAttributes.OwningVserverName = "vserver1"

$a = Get-NcVol -Template

Initialize-NcObjectProperty $a VolumeIdAttributes

$a.VolumeIdAttributes.Comment = "Database volumes"

Update-NcVol -Query $q -Attributes $a

Using this cmdlet and others, execute an advanced query to set the comment field on multiple volumes.

NcController :

SuccessCount : 2

FailureCount : 0

SuccessList  : {vol1, vol2}

FailureList  : {}
