Spbm Entity 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-SpbmEntityConfiguration cmdlet. See example below:

# Returns the SPBM configuration and compliance status of all Virtual Machine and Hard Disk objects associated with the $policy storage policy.

Get-SpbmEntityConfiguration -StoragePolicy $policy

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

You can UPDATE objects by using Set-SpbmEntityConfiguration cmdlet. See example below:

# Assigns the $policy storage policy as default storage policy to the $datastore1 datastore.

Set-SpbmEntityConfiguration -Configuration (Get-SpbmEntityConfiguration $datastore1) -StoragePolicy $policy
