Working with VMware Application Group

In this article

    This example shows how to create an application group containing a DC server and the DNS server and perform other actions on it.

    Create an application group

    You will need to perform the following steps:

    1. Get the domain controller server and the DNS server and assign them to a variable. Because the DC server is first in the search, it will boot first. Run Find-VBRViEntity for this.
    2. Create the application group with Add-VSBViApplicationGroup using the created variable.

    // Get the VMs:

    $vms = Find-VBRViEntity -Name "DC", "DNSServer"

     

    // Create the application group:

    Add-VSBViApplicationGroup -Name "Production Application Group" -Vm $vms

    Look for the application group

    Run Get-VSBApplicationGroup to get the application group.

    Get-VSBApplicationGroup -Name "Production Application Group"

    Remove the application group

    Run Remove-VSBApplicationGroup to remove the application group.

    Get-VSBApplicationGroup -Name "Production Application Group"| Remove-VSBApplicationGroup
