  • StoragePolicy
  • SkipHardDisks
  • StoragePolicy

Host Profile Updates

There have been a lot of requests coming in for updates to the set of cmdlets available to manage Host Profiles. The VMware.VimAutomation.Core module has some updates you’ll want to check out!

The following cmdlets have been added to help manage Host Profiles:

  • Get-VMHostProfileUserConfiguration
  • Set-VMHostProfileUserConfiguration
  • Get-VMHostProfileStorageDeviceConfiguration
  • Set-VMHostProfileStorageDeviceConfiguration
  • Get-VMHostProfileImageCacheConfiguration
  • Set-VMHostProfileImageCacheConfiguration

Storage Module Updates

The VMware.VimAutomation.Storage module has grown by leaps and bounds in the last couple releases. This release adds two new cmdlets and quite a few updates to existing cmdlets. Some of the improvements include an update to support predefined time ranges when using Get-VsanStat. Get-VsanDisk has some additional properties which are returned, such as: capacity, used percentage, and reserved percentage. Also receiving an update is the Get/Import/Export-SpbmStoragePolicy cmdlets, as they now support storage policy components.

The following cmdlets have been added to help automate vSAN:

  • Get-VsanObject
  • Get-VsanComponent

More details on these updates for vSAN can be found on the Virtual Blocks blog, by Jase McCarty: More vSAN Cmdlets in PowerCLI 11!

vCloud Director Updates

This update is another direct result from feedback. There has been an impressive amount of people requesting updates to the VMware.VimAutomation.Cloud module. With this release, we are updating the module to support vCloud Director 9.5. There are also a couple of new cmdlets being added.

The following cmdlets have been added to help automate vCloud Director networking:

  • Get-EdgeGateway
  • New-OrgVdcNetwork
