Examples

Example 1: Create a cluster from managed hosts

The first command gets the Run As account named RunAsAccount01, and then stores it in the $RunAsAcct variable.

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

The third command gets the cluster nodes that begin with the name HostClus in the host group stored in $HostGroup. The command then stores the nodes in the $Nodes variable.

The last command creates the cluster, and then names it Cluster01.


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
