CI Datastore Category

Cmdlets are usually implemented around resource operations. The four basic operations are CREATE, READ, UPDATE and DELETE. This set of operations is known as CRUD. Most of the cmdlets support CRUD which are respectively cmdlets that start with the New/Get/Set/Remove cmdlet verbs but they also may have additional operations

Step 1: Retrieve a object by running a Get command

You can READ objects by using Get-CIDatastore cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves all datastores with names that start with "MyDatastore" from all available provider vDCs.

Get-CIDatastore -Name "MyDatastore*"

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

You can UPDATE objects by using Add-CIDatastore cmdlet. See example below:

# Adds all datastores with names that contain "cloud" to the specified provider vDC.

Get-Datastore -Name *cloud* | Add-CIDatastore -ProviderVdc 'MyProviderVdc'
