vVol creatiion on VSAN Free

Postby DataBitz » Thu Feb 21, 2019 2:52 am

I'm looking for some guidance about how to create a vVol using Powershell on VSAN free.
Based on what can be done in the UI, it looks like there should be an option with the New-Target command to specify a type of vVol.

UI reference.

These are the options I see.
Code: Select all
SYNTAX
    New-Target [-server] <Object> [-alias] <String> [[-name] <String>] [[-devices] <String[]>] [[-clustered]
    <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Unfortunately, VVols configuration is not available via StarWindX library.

IStarwindServer has a method:
CreateTarget(string targetAlias, string TargetName, Parameters builder)

You have to build your parameters for vvols:
$param.AppendParam("targetType", "vvols")
The other parameter which can be set is "clustered" which can be "Yes" or " No"

TargetName can be an empty string.
