Cluster 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-Cluster cmdlet. See example below:

# Get a list of the available clusters in the Folder folder.

Get-Cluster -Location Folder

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

You can CREATE objects by using New-Cluster cmdlet. See example below:

# Creates a new cluster named "MyCluster" in the "MyDatacenter" data center.

New-Cluster -Name "MyCluster" -Location "MyDatacenter"
You can UPDATE objects by using Move-Cluster cmdlet. See example below:

# Moves the cluster named Cluster into the folder called Folder on the same datacenter

Move-Cluster -Cluster Cluster -Destination Folder
You can REMOVE objects by using Remove-Cluster cmdlet. See example below:

# Creates and then removes, without asking for user confirmation, the Custer cluster on the Datacenter datacenter.

$cluster = New-Cluster -Name Cluster -Location Datacenter Remove-Cluster $cluster -Confirm:$false
