How Mount Disk Image in Powershell


I have some code in the script which can identify the drive letter assigned 

Answer: The Powershell code below will create the temporary drive letter and Mount the image. 

 %SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe  -Command  Mount-DiskImage  -ImagePath  '"\\my_network_path\Microsoft\SQL2017\SW_DVD9_NTRL_SQL_Svr_Ent_Core_2017_64Bit_English_OEM_VL_X21-56995.ISO"'

This is similar as if you were attempting to Mount a Disk image ISO  via the manual method.

If you want to dismount the drive - you can either restart the server or alternatively use the Dismount-Image powershell cmdlet. 

PowerShell  -Command  Dismount-DiskImage  -ImagePath  '"\\my_network_path\Microsoft\SQL2017\SW_DVD9_NTRL_SQL_Svr_Ent_Core_2017_64Bit_English_OEM_VL_X21-56995.ISO"'

These sort of techniques can be used in automated procedures - where you could complete repeatable tasks with code. For example if you were building multiple servers - rather than staging the code on the server - you could mount the disk image and install from this point - saving you disk space and keeping the process streamlined
