vRO Return Datastores over a specified TB size

This code will return only the datastores over a specified Terabyte size.

Set two input parameters

inputTB as type number, this will be the TB size that will determine the Datastores to return.

set another input parameter as inDS as array type VC:Datastore

Set the output parameter as outDS as array type VC:Datastore


var tbSize = inputTB * 1073741824;

System.log("Variable tbSize is "+tbSize);

var ds = new Array();

for each (d in inDS){ if (d.summary.capacity >= tbSize){ ds.push(d);} System.log("name: " + d.name +" Size: "+ d.summary.capacity);}

outDS = ds;

vRO vMotion VM to SDRS Datastore cluster and inflate disk

The following can be used to vMotion a machine to an SDRS Datastore Cluster, inflating the disk to Lazy Zero at the same time (done by VcVirtualMachineRelocateTransformation.flat)

Create two input parameters. vMotionVM of type VC:VirtualMachine & a parameter name SDRSCL of type VC:StoragePod

The output parameter will be myVcTask of type VC:Task


var storageSpec = new VcStoragePlacementSpec();
var StorageResourceManager = vMotionVM.sdkConnection.storageResourceManager;
var myStoragePlacementResult = VcStoragePlacementResult();
var myKey = new Array();
var podSelectionSpec = new VcStorageDrsPodSelectionSpec();
var relocateSpec = new VcVirtualMachineRelocateSpec();
relocateSpec.transform = VcVirtualMachineRelocateTransformation.flat;

podSelectionSpec.storagePod = SDRSCL;

storageSpec.type = "relocate";
storageSpec.vm = vMotionVM;
storageSpec.podSelectionSpec = podSelectionSpec;
storageSpec.relocateSpec = relocateSpec

myStoragePlacementResult = StorageResourceManager.recommendDatastores(storageSpec);

myKey[0] = myStoragePlacementResult.recommendations[0].key
myVcTask = StorageResourceManager.applyStorageDrsRecommendation_Task(myKey);

vRO Remove CD ROM Workflow

The following can be used to remove a CDROM drive from a powered on Virtual Machine using vRO, vRealize Orchestrator.

Paste the following into a Scriptable task and create an input Parameter of type VC:VirtualMachine called workflowVM

 


var configSpec = new VcVirtualMachineConfigSpec();
var deviceConfigSpecs = new Array();
var deviceConfigSpec = new VcVirtualDeviceConfigSpec();
var devices = workflowVM.config.hardware.device;

for ( var ii in devices) {
var device = devices[ii];
if ( device instanceof VcVirtualCdrom) {
deviceConfigSpec.device = device;
deviceConfigSpec.operation = VcVirtualDeviceConfigSpecOperation.remove;
deviceConfigSpecs.push (deviceConfigSpec);
configSpec.deviceChange = deviceConfigSpecs
}
}

workflowVM.reconfigVM_Task(configSpec);
