Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

Test-SCVMHostCluster

Validates whether hosts that are managed by VMM are suitable as a nodes of a failover cluster.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ValidateCluster
Test-SCVMHostCluster -VMHostCluster <HostCluster> [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ValidateNodes
Test-SCVMHostCluster -VMHost <Host[]> [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Test-SCVMHostCluster cmdlet validates whether one or more hosts that are managed by Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) is suitable as a node of a failover cluster.

Parameters

-Credential<PSCredential>

Specifies a credential object or, for some cmdlets, a Run As account object that contains the user name and password of an account that has permission to perform this action. Or, in the case of Restart-SCJob, has permission to complete a restarted task.

For more information about the PSCredential object, type Get-Help Get-Credential. For more information about Run As accounts, type Get-Help New-SCRunAsAccount.

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • ClusterValidationResult

Examples

Example 1: Validate nodes to be clustered

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

The second command gets all host objects with names beginning with Cluster from the New York host group, and then stores the objects in the $Nodes variable.

The third command validates the host objects stored in $Nodes for failover cluster creation, and then stores the results in $Result.

The fourth command displays the validation result to the user.

The last command displays the location of the validation report file to the user.


PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup -Name "New York"
PS C:\> $Nodes = Get-SCVMHost | where {$_.Name -like "Cluster*" -and $_.VMHostGroup "eq $HostGroup}
PS C:\> $Result = Test-SCVMHostCluster -VMHost $Nodes
PS C:\> Write-Output $Result.ValidationResult
PS C:\> Write-Output $Result.ResultFileLocation

Example 2: Validate an existing cluster

The first command gets the cluster object named Cluster01, and then stores the object in the $Cluster variable.

The second command tests the cluster stored in $Cluster, and then stores the results of the test in $Result.

The third command displays the results for the user.

The last command displays the location of the validation report file for the user.


PS C:\> $Cluster = Get-SCVMHostCluster -Name "Cluster01"
PS C:\> $Result = Test-SCVMHostCluster -VMHostCluster $Cluster
PS C:\> Write-Output $Result.ValidationResult
PS C:\> Write-Output $result.ResultFileLocation
