  • 1.  How to use powershell script to automate datastore removal

    Posted Jul 17, 2012 05:59 PM

    Hi,

    I just downloaded the script located here: http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-18008

    I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to use it.  It looks like it bundles some built-in powershell commands into more advanced functions to read in datastores you want to have removed and then carry out the process of removing them.

    How do I get this in there?  Do I need to install the script into powershell some place or do I pipe to it?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance,

    Don

    hi Don,

      if you have already powercli installed, open it. If you have downloaded this file for example to c:\newfuntions.ps1

    while being in powercli please type:

    . c:\newfunctions.ps1

    By this you will source this file and will gain those functions in your current powercli session.

    If you want to use them simple write for example:

    Get-Datastore | Get-DatastoreMountInfo | Sort Datastore, VMHost | FT -AutoSize

    You have examples in this file at the end.

    I hope that helps.
