vSAN Direct 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-VsanDirectDisk cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves all vSAN Direct disks with the specified canonical name.

Get-VsanDirectDisk -diskcanonicalname "mpx.vmhba0:C0:T3:L0"

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

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

# Creates a new vSAN Direct disk with the specified canonical name on the specified host.

New-VsanDirectDisk -diskcanonicalname "mpx.vmhba0:C0:T1:L0" -vmhost ""
You can REMOVE objects by using Remove-VsanDirectDisk cmdlet. See example below:

# Removes the specified vSAN Direct disks from the specified cluster.

Remove-VsanDirectDisk -cluster "VSAN-Cluster" -Vsandirectdisk $disk[0]
