Detailed Description

This cmdlet retrieves SPBM-related configuration data of Virtual Machine, Hard Disk and Cluster objects.
The configuration data includes:
1. Associated storage policy for virtual machines or hard disks.
2. Compliance status for virtual machines or hard disks.
3. SPBM enablement status for cluster.

Parameters

NameTypeDescriptionRequired?Pipeline InputDefault Value
VMVIObject[]Specifies the virtual machines, hard disks, and clusters, for which you want to retrieve SPBM-related configuration data.falsetrue (ByValue)
CheckComplianceNowSwitchParameterIf the value is $true, checks the compliance status and updates the server cache. If $false, returns the latest available compliance status from the server cache.falsefalse
ClusterCluster[]Specifies the clusters, for which you want to check whether SPBM is enabled or disabled on them.falsefalse
HardDiskHardDisk[]Specifies virtual disks for which you want to check compliance.falsefalse
HardDisksOnlySwitchParameterIf the value is $true, retrieves the configuration data only for hard disks.falsefalse
ServerVIServer[]Specifies the vCenter Server systems on which you want to run the cmdlet. If no value is given to this parameter, the command runs on the default servers. For more information about default servers, see the description of Connect-VIServer.falsefalse
StoragePolicySpbmStoragePolicy[]Specifies the storage policies against which the compliance status will be evaluated. A storage policy can be associated with one or multiple StorageObjects (VM Home or Disks). There will be one association object with compliance status for each policy - entity combination.
If no storage policy is specified, the cmdlet returns the status for all available storage policies.
falsetrue (ByValue)
VMsOnlySwitchParameterIf the value is $true, retrieves the configuration data only for virtual machines.falsefalse

Return Type

Zero or more objects derived from SpbmEntityConfiguration

Notes

Works only with vCenter Server 5.5 or later.
