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-VsanWipeDiskStatus cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves the vSAN wipe disk status of "DiskCanonicalName" from the $host host.

Get-VsanWipeDiskStatus -CanonicalName "DiskCanonicalName" -VMHost $host

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

You can UPDATE objects by using Start-VsanWipeDisk cmdlet. See example below:

# Starts the secure wipe disk process of "DiskCanonicalName" from the $host host.

Start-VsanWipeDisk -CanonicalName "DiskCanonicalName" -VMHost $host
