vSAN 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-VsanClusterConfiguration cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves the vSAN cluster configuration of the clusters named "MyCluster".

Get-VsanClusterConfiguration -Cluster "MyCluster"

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

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

# Enables the space efficiency on the $cluster cluster and sets the periodic health check interval to 120 minutes.

Set-VsanClusterConfiguration -Configuration (Get-VsanClusterConfiguration $cluster) -SpaceEfficiencyEnabled $true -HealthCheckIntervalMinutes 120
