I am trying to get a for loop going that just gives the CanonicalName option from the output below... what do I need to do to just get that field?

foreach ($LUN in $DS) { Write-Output $LUN ; get-cluster "VDI" | Get-VMHost | Get-Datastore $LUN |
Get-ScsiLun }

You can select CanonicalName  at the end of the pipeline.. For example..
foreach ($LUN in $DS) { Write-Output $LUN ; get-cluster "VDI" | Get-VMHost | Get-Datastore $LUN | Get-ScsiLun | Select CanonicalName }
