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-VasaProvider cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves all VASA providers named "MyProvider".

Get-VasaProvider -Name "MyProvider"

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

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

# Registers a VASA provider running at "MyUrl" with the Storage Monitoring Service.

New-VasaProvider -Name "MyProvider" -Username "UserName" -Password "Password" -Url "MyUrl"
You can REMOVE objects by using Remove-VasaProvider cmdlet. See example below:

# Unregisters the $provider VASA provider from the Storage Monitoring Service without asking for confirmation.

Remove-VasaProvider -Provider $provider -Confirm:$false
