I am looking for a PowerCLI script that I can run from a Windows server that will report how much storage has been allocated to all resource pools (multiple) present in vCenter.

Hi There!

I would recommend VMware's developer resource guides for Cmdlets as a starting point. I'm not sure what version of vSphere you're on, here's the link for 5.5.

http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-55/topic/com.vmware.powercli.cmdletref.doc/Overview.html

I like to point folks to VMware Flings, check out Onyx, it will monitor the communication between vCenter and the vSphere client and translate it into PowerShell code.

Hope that helps!

Melly,

The information you provided is helpful. But I am still seeking a pre-written PowerShell script that can perform an audit of the each Resource Pool that exist on any given vCenter server.  

Let me know if you are aware of where I can look to find such a script.

If you don't get a response here, you could try the VMware forums. I've seen a few PowerCLI scripts shared out there and maybe someone has something that can get you started at least.  

Try Onyx though, because it will output powershell examples for you, but I see that what you're doing is pretty specific.

I found this great blog for you that has a ton of resources, and it includes the community forums.
