vSAN Disk 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-VsanDisk cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves all vSAN disks with canonical name "DiskCanonicalName" from the $vmHost virtual machine host.

Get-VsanDisk -CanonicalName "DiskCanonicalName" -VMHost $vmHost

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

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

# Creates a new vSAN disk and adds the disk to the $vsanDiskGroup vSAN disk group.

New-VsanDisk -CanonicalName "DiskCanonicalName" -VsanDiskGroup $vsanDiskGroup
You can REMOVE objects by using Remove-VsanDisk cmdlet. See example below:

# Removes the $vsanDisk vSAN disk without asking for confirmation.

Remove-VsanDisk -VsanDisk $vsanDisk -Confirm:$false
