Here is a workflow I use.  I was trying to find the thread I got it from, since I copied most if not all of it, but could not find it. Hope it helps.

Zbyszek, it seems you need to clarify the versions of:

vCenter Orchestrator:

vCenter plug-in for vCO:

vCenter:

VC:StoragePod is a standard object exposed by the vCenter plug-in that ships with current vCO 5.5.x. The object is available when the vCenter plug-in is enabled. It should obviously be configured as well Smiley Wink

Hey,

sorry for the confusion. I have vCO 4.1.3. I added only Onyx and VIX.

First off, I don't think that such an old version of vCO is going to work with storage pods... second, be careful with the VIX plug-in fling as it is pretty old and has been deprecated by newer vCenter API features that expose Guest Operations. Additionally, if the VIX plug-in IS installed, but has not been configured properly, it can prevent many different workflows/plug-ins from functioning properly, causing all kinds of interesting issues. If at all possible, I HIGHLY recommend and encourage you to move to more current versions of VMware software.

As to your earlier issue of invalid return -- if you are attempting to use the return statement in a Scriptable task of a workflow, that error is expected. The return statement is only valid for Actions and within a javascript function.
