vSAN Iscsi 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-VsanIscsiInitiatorGroup cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves all vSAN iSCSI initiator groups from the "vsan-cluster" cluster.

Get-VsanIscsiInitiatorGroup -Cluster "vsan-cluster"

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

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

# Creates a new vSAN iSCSI initiator group named "Group1" in the "vsan-cluster" cluster.

New-VsanIscsiInitiatorGroup -Name "Group1" -Cluster "vsan-cluster"
You can UPDATE objects by using Set-VsanIscsiInitiatorGroup cmdlet. See example below:

# Adds iSCSI initiators with IQN "initiator1-iqn" and "initiator2-iqn" to the $initiatorGroup initiator group and removes iSCSI initiator with IQN "initiator3-iqn" from the initiator group.

Set-VsanIscsiInitiatorGroup -InitiatorGroup $initiatorGroup -AddInitiator "initiator1-iqn", "initiator2-iqn" -RemoveInitiator "initiator3-iqn"
You can REMOVE objects by using Remove-VsanIscsiInitiatorGroup cmdlet. See example below:

# Removes the $initiatorGroup iSCSI initiator group without asking for confirmation.

Remove-VsanIscsiInitiatorGroup -InitiatorGroup $initiatorGroup -Confirm:$false
