New-SpbmStoragePolicy Command | Vmware PowerCLI Reference


This cmdlet creates a requirement storage policy in an SPBM server. A requirement policy contains requirements that are derived from tag-defined capabilities or from VMware VSAN capabilities. A policy is a collection of rule sets. A rule set references storage capabilities and defines requirements based on those capabilities. Rules from the VAIOFilter namespace are only accepted as value by the CommonRule parameter. These rules apply to all rule sets as common requirements.
