  • 1.  Script for VM and datastore information

    Posted Feb 02, 2023 09:58 PM

    I am working on a script that will list the datastore information i.e total space, used space, and percent free.

    also need to have the VM name (s) that those datastores have on it as well.

    this script has all of the datastore information that I am looking for however I can't seem to figure out how to get the VM names listed as well. 

    any help would be appreciated.

    $VIServer = "vCenter Name"
    Connect-VIServer $VIServer -WarningAction SilentlyContinue
    start-sleep -s 3
    #connect-viserver -Server $vcenter -WarningAction SilentlyContinue
    Function Percentcal {
    [parameter(Mandatory = $true)]
    [parameter(Mandatory = $true)]
    $InputNum1 / $InputNum2*100

    Write-Host "Please Wait while your datastore query is running" -ForegroundColor Cyan

    $datastores = Get-Datastore | Sort Name
    ForEach ($ds in $datastores)
    if (($ds.Name -match “Shared”) -or ($ds.Name -match “”))
    $PercentFree = Percentcal $ds.FreeSpaceMB $ds.CapacityMB
    $PercentFree = “{0:N2}” -f $PercentFree
    $ds | Add-Member -type NoteProperty -name PercentFree -value $PercentFree
    $datastores | Select Name,@{N=”UsedSpaceGB”;E={[Math]::Round(($_.ExtensionData.Summary.Capacity – $_.ExtensionData.Summary.FreeSpace)/1GB,0)}},@{N=”TotalSpaceGB”;E={[Math]::Round(($_.ExtensionData.Summary.Capacity)/1GB,0)}} ,PercentFree | Export-Csv C:\Support\Reports\Datastore\Datastore_Usage-$VIServer$(get-date -f MM-dd-yyyy).csv

    I have reported your post to the moderators, asking them to move it to the area for PowerCLI.
