You can retrieve a datastore compatible with storage policy and create a virtual machine in the datastore.

Verify that you are connected to a vCenter Server system.

Verify that a tag-based storage policy named Tag-Policy exists in the vCenter Server environment.

Verify that the tag of the Tag-Policy storage policy is associated with one of the available datastores in the vCenter Server environment.

1

Get the tag-based Tag-Policy storage policy and store it in the $policy variable.

$policy = Get-SpbmStoragePolicy -Name 'Tag-Policy'
2

Get the tag used in the Tag-Policy storage policy and store it in the $tag variable.

$tag = ($($($policy.AnyOfRulesets).AllOfRules).AnyOfTags)[0]
3

Get a datastore compatible with the $policy storage policy and store it in the $ds variable.

$ds = Get-CompatibleStorage -StoragePolicy $policy
4

Get the virtual machine host that contains the $ds datastore and store it in the $vmhost variable.

$vmHost = Get-VMHost -Datastore $ds
5

Create a virtual machine named VM-Tag in the $ds datastore and store the virtual machine object in the $vm variable.

$vm = New-VM -Name 'VM-Tag' -ResourcePool $vmHost -Datastore $ds -NumCPU 2 -MemoryGB 4 -DiskMB 1
6

Associate the $policy storage policy with the $vm virtual machine.

Set-SpbmEntityConfiguration $vm -StoragePolicy $policy
7

Verify that the $vm virtual machine is compliant with the $policy storage policy.

Get-SpbmEntityConfiguration $vm

The status should be Compliant.

8

Get the Tag-Assignment object for the $ds datastore and store it in the $tagAs variable.

$tagAs = Get-TagAssignment -Entity $ds
9

Remove the $tag tag association from the $ds datastore.

Remove-TagAssignment -TagAssignment $tagAs
10

Check the compliance of the $vm virtual machine with the $policy storage policy.

Get-SpbmEntityConfiguration $vm

The status should be NonCompliant.
