          You can use Powershell and connect to your vCenter



          PowerCLI C:\> Connect-VIServer


          Cmdlet Connect-VIServer an der Befehlspipelineposition 1

          Geben Sie Werte für die folgenden Parameter an:

          Server[0]: foo.bar.local



          Name                           Port  User

          ----                           ----  ----

          foo.bar.local                443   ad\user


          PowerCLI C:\> If($(Get-Cluster | where {$_.VsanEnabled} | Measure).Count -gt 0){

          Write-Host "VSAN Enabled Cluster"

          Get-Cluster | where {$_.VsanEnabled} | Get-Datastore | where {$_.type -match "vsan"}



          VSAN Enabled Cluster


          Name                               FreeSpaceGB      CapacityGB

          ----                               -----------      ----------

              Iam pretty sure that in your API also something like "get-datastore" exists and you only have to filter for "type = vsan".


              A short search brings up

              VMware-vSphere-Automation-SDK-Java where a get-type exists. So you can enumerate each datastore and check the type of.


              I preferer only to investigate the way if there is are Clusters with VSAN enabled and than check for the datastores.
