    Examples

    Find-VBRViDatastoreClusterExample 1. Looking for VMware Datastores Clusters Connected to Specific ESXi Host

    This example shows how to look for VMware datastore clusters on the esx05.tech.local host.

    $server = Get-VBRServer -Type ESXi -Name "esx05.tech.local"

    Find-VBRViDatastoreCluster -Server $server

    Perform the following steps:

    1. Run the Get-VBRServer cmdlet. Specify the Type and Name parameter values. Save the result to the $server variable.
    2. Run the Find-VBRViDatastoreCluster cmdlet. Set the $server variable as the Server parameter value.

    Find-VBRViDatastoreClusterExample 2. Looking for VMware Datastores Clusters Compatible with Specific Storage Policy Profiles

    This example shows how to get the list of the vol2 cluster datastores and cluster datastores which names start with cluster0*. These datastores are compatible with the SP Virtual SAN Default storage policy profile.

    $server = Get-VBRServer -Type ESXi -Name "esx05.tech.local"

    $policy = Find-VBRViStoragePolicy -Server $server -Name "SP Virtual SAN Default"

    Find-VBRViDatastoreCluster -StoragePolicy $policy -Name "vol2", "cluster0*"

    Perform the following steps:

    1. Run the Get-VBRServer cmdlet. Specify the Type and Name parameter values. Save the result to the $server variable.
    2. Run the Find-VBRViStoragePolicy cmdlet. Specify the Server and Name parameter values. Save the result to the $policy variable
    3. Run the Find-VBRViDatastoreCluster cmdlet. Set the $policy variable as the StoragePolicy parameter value. Specify the Name parameter value.
