Getting Job ID from c-mode asyncronous commands



Several c-mode commands (available in 1.6 beta) such as New-NcAggr don't complete immediately, instead they result with an asynchronous job.

Is there a way to get the job ID so it can be used with the Get-NcJob command? (I tried $a=New-NcAggr... but $a contained the aggregate details and no information on the job).




Re: Getting Job ID from c-mode asyncronous commands


As Michael points out, Toolkit 1.6 does include a number (148, to be exact) of Cluster-mode cmdlets.  There aren't that many asynchronous APIs in Data ONTAP 8.1 (Cluster-mode), but we expect that to change over time.  Those we support with cmdlets do indeed return job ID info, suitable for passing to Get-NcJob.  Here's an example:

PS C:\> Start-NcVolMove bigvol aggr1 -Vserver vserver1 | Get-NcJob | fl *

NcController            :

IsRestarted             : False

JobAffinity             : cluster
