Resource Pool 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-ResourcePool cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves information of the resource pool to which the virtual machine MS Win belongs.

$server = Connect-VIServer -Server Get-ResourcePool -Server $server -VM VM

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

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

# Creates a new resource pool named ResourcePool2 in the cluster's root resource pool ResourcePool1.

$resourcepool1 = Get-ResourcePool -Location Cluster -Name ResourcePool1 New-ResourcePool -Location $resourcepool1 -Name ResourcePool2 -CpuExpandableReservation $true -CpuReservationMhz 500 -CpuSharesLevel high -MemExpandableReservation $true -MemReservationGB 5 -MemSharesLevel high
You can UPDATE objects by using Move-ResourcePool cmdlet. See example below:

# Moves the resource pool named ResourcePool to the virtual machine host Host.

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

# Removes the resource pool named ResourcePool.

Remove-ResourcePool -ResourcePool ResourcePool
