Looking for HostDatastoreBrowserSearch

Hi guys, this is my situation:

in dynprop there is a Managed Object Reference to a datastoreBrowser Object

then I create a new HostDatastoreBrowserSearchSpec

then I retrieve the Managed Object Reference to a task with the command searchDatastore_Task

then I retrieve the "info" property of this task and obtain the TaskInfo Data Object (info.result doesn't work)

All is good until now. Yes because in the TaskInfo Data Object I can't found the

object "result" that should be an HostDatastoreBrowserSearch Object

And this happen even if the "state" of the task is running and if the "error" field

in the TaskInfo is null.

I suppose it is not a problem of permissions (I'm the only administrator).

Maybe I wrong datastore path? Should I put the path of a virtual machine? Is there a mistake in the code?

thnk you

for (int pci = 0; pci < pcary.length; pci++)

{

dynprop=pcary\[pci];

ManagedObjectReference mor= (ManagedObjectReference)dynprop.getVal();

HostDatastoreBrowserSearchSpec hdbss = new HostDatastoreBrowserSearchSpec();

hdbss.setSearchCaseInsensitive(true);

FileQueryFlags fqa=new FileQueryFlags();

fqa.setFileSize(true);

fqa.setFileType(true);

fqa.setModification(true);

hdbss.setDetails(fqa);

ManagedObjectReference task = service.searchDatastoreTask(mor, "\[storage1] /",hdbss);

PropertySpec prtask = new PropertySpec();

prtask.setPathSet(new String[] \{"info"});

prtask.setType("Task");

PropertyFilterSpec spectask = new PropertyFilterSpec();

spectask.setPropSet(new PropertySpec[] \{prtask});

spectask.setObjectSet(new ObjectSpec[] \{ new ObjectSpec() });

spectask.getObjectSet(0).setObj(task);

spectask.getObjectSet(0).setSkip(new Boolean(false));

spectask.getObjectSet(0).setSelectSet(new SelectionSpec[] \{ folderTraversalSpec });

ObjectContent\[] ocarytask = service.retrieveProperties(propCol, new PropertyFilterSpec[] \{ spectask });

ObjectContent octask = null;

ManagedObjectReference mortask = null;

DynamicProperty[] pcarytask = null;

for (int ocitask = 0; ocitask < ocarytask.length; ocitask++)

{

octask = ocarytask\[ocitask];

mortask = octask.getObj();

pcarytask = octask.getPropSet();

}

}

the SearchDatastore_Task returns a mor to task you need to monitor (wait till its done), then you retrieve the properties of the taskMor: Set type = "Task" and pathSet = "info.result".

In place of 'Task' set the type of PropertySpec to 'TaskInfo'

info property is of 'TaskInfo' type and not 'Task'

prtask.setType("TaskInfo");

Hi SaranshG, I'm sorry for the late, I was on Holiday Smiley Happy

I tried your suggestion but it gives me an error on the

Retrieveproperties

AxisFault

faultCode: ServerFaultCode

faultSubcode:

faultString: The request refers to an unexpected or unknown type.

faultActor:

faultNode:

faultDetail:

\{urn:vim2}InvalidTypeFault:

ecc. ecc.

Is it normal?

Ehm...yes, in fact it's this that I did (I think),

but the problem is that the info.result in each case is empty Smiley Sad

Try this running this code

package com.vmware.samples.version;

import com.vmware.apputils.*;

public class FilterVMDisk {

private void getDataStore(String [] args) throws Exception{

com.vmware.apputils.ClientBase cb = ClientBase.initialize("FilterVMDisk",args);

cb.connect();

com.vmware.vim.ManagedObjectReference dsmor = null;

String dsName = null;

com.vmware.vim.ManagedObjectReference vmmor = cb.getServiceUtil().getDecendentMoRef(null,"VirtualMachine","First");

if(vmmor != null) {

com.vmware.vim.ManagedObjectReference \[] dsArray = (com.vmware.vim.ManagedObjectReference [])cb.getServiceUtil().getDynamicProperty(vmmor,"datastore");

for(int i=0; i<dsArray.length; i++) {

com.vmware.vim.DatastoreSummary dsSummary = (com.vmware.vim.DatastoreSummary)cb.getServiceUtil().getDynamicProperty(dsArray[i],"summary");

if(dsSummary.getName().equalsIgnoreCase("storage1")) {

dsmor = dsArray[i];

dsName = dsSummary.getName();

}

}

if(dsmor != null) {

com.vmware.vim.ManagedObjectReference dsBrowser = (com.vmware.vim.ManagedObjectReference)cb.getServiceUtil().getDynamicProperty(dsmor,"browser");

com.vmware.vim.HostDatastoreBrowserSearchSpec searchSpec = new com.vmware.vim.HostDatastoreBrowserSearchSpec();

com.vmware.vim.VmDiskFileQuery fQuery = new com.vmware.vim.VmDiskFileQuery();

com.vmware.vim.FileQuery [] arr = \{fQuery};

searchSpec.setQuery(arr);

com.vmware.vim.ManagedObjectReference taskmor = cb.getConnection().getService().searchDatastore_Task(dsBrowser,"\["\+dsName+"]",null);

String res = cb.getServiceUtil().waitForTask(taskmor);

System.out.println("Result " + res);

com.vmware.vim.TaskInfo tInfo = (com.vmware.vim.TaskInfo)cb.getServiceUtil().getDynamicProperty(taskmor,"info");

System.out.println(tInfo.getResult().getClass().getCanonicalName());

com.vmware.vim.HostDatastoreBrowserSearchResults searchResult = (com.vmware.vim.HostDatastoreBrowserSearchResults)tInfo.getResult();

com.vmware.vim.FileInfo \[] fInfos = (com.vmware.vim.FileInfo [])searchResult.getFile();

for(int j=0 ; j<fInfos.length; j++) {

System.out.println("File Name " + fInfos[j].getPath());

}

}

else {

System.out.println("No datastore found");

}

}

else {

System.out.println("No Host Found");

}

}

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

FilterVMDisk obj = new FilterVMDisk();

obj.getDataStore(args);

}

}

Hi

I discovered which was the problem: I didn't wait the end of task, and if I want the results of the search I have to wait until the SUCCESS state

I just added this line after the searchtask line

Thread.sleep(1000);

and now it works!

tnk you for all guys. you sent me on the right direction
