  • VMHostCluster

Examples

1: Create a cluster from managed hosts.

The first command gets the host group object named New York and stores the object in the $HostGroup variable.

The second command gets all host objects whose name contains "myclus" from the New York host group (stored in $HostGroup), and then stores the host objects in the $Nodes variable.

The third command gets all unassigned LUNs from the storage pool associated with the host group stored in $HostGroup (New York).

The fourth command creates a GUID and stores it in the $JobID variable.

The fifth command assigns the LUNs stored in $Luns to the nodes that are to be clustered. The JobGroup parameter will delay running this command until the last command containing the JobGroup parameter runs.

The last command creates the cluster and names it Cluster01. Using the JobGroup parameter assigns the LUNs just propr to creating the cluster.


PS C:\> $RunAsAcct = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount01"PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup -Name "New York"PS C:\> $Nodes = Get-SCVMHost | where {$_.Name -like "HostClus*" -and $_.VMHostGroup -eq $HostGroup}PS C:\> Install-SCVMHostCluster -VMHost $Nodes -ClusterName "Cluster01" -Credential $RunAsAcct
