Detailed Description

This cmdlet performs placement compatibility checking based on a storage requirement policy. If the compatibility checking for a hub does not produce any errors, the hub is considered as a viable candidate for virtual machine file storage.

When the CandidateStorage parameter is specified, each object in the output is equal to some of the objects in the input (the -eq operation returns true).
