  • 1.  Rescan for Datastores.. at Cluster level with PowerCLI 5 ??

    Posted Nov 03, 2011 01:12 PM

    Hello,

    Since vSphere was release ( I think) the option to initiate a Rescan of the HBA on all host in the ESXs in the cluster has been available in the GUI if you right click the cluster and select Rescan for Datastores.

    I have been reading several threads of people requesting this option in Powercli but have not found a solution for it.

    When you do Get-Cluster -name | get-vmhost | get-vmhoststorage -RescanAllHBA it does the rescan one host a time in the cluster.

    Is there a solution for this now in PowerCLI 5.0 ?

    BR

    Ok, thank you for the answer.

    Is this anything you heard of that is being implemented in feature release?

    I'm afraid not, I have no access to PowerCLI roadmaps either.

    And I doubt if VMware will be willing (allowed) to make any statements concerning future releases :smileygrin:
