    Validate storage vmotion compatibility with powerCLI

    TheVMinator Master

      If I use vSphere Web Client to storage vMotion a VM, it does a compatibility / validation when I select the datastore and tells me whether the storage vmotion will succeed before I try it.  If there are any issues such as the datastore isn't mounted to the ESXi host the VM is on - it will tell me before I attempt the sVmotion and the compatibility check / validation will fail.

       

      What I'd like to do is take a VM I'm about to sVmotion and do a compatibility check before I actually attempt the storage vMotion and see if there are any issues first.

       

      Can this be done in PowerCLI?

       

      Thanks!
