vCloud Director Provider and OrgV DC Storage Profile PowerCLI Module

PowerShell cmdlets to expose and add support for updating Organisation VDC and Provider Storage Profiles/Policies in vCloud Director 8.20/9.0


The rationale for creating these cmdlets was twofold;

  1. There is currently no way to set the Storage I/O control parameters in vCloud Director outside of the API
  2. The Org VDC/Provider Storage Profiles are not readily exposed in PowerCLI which makes them a bit difficult to work with (need to combine API calls and vCloud Views)



  • Get-OrgVdcStorageProfile : Returns the Storage Policies/Profiles which are defined on the target Organisation Virtual Datacenter object.
  • Set-OrgVdcStorageProfile : Sets the properties of a provided Org VDC Storage Policies/Profiles.
  • Get-ProviderVdcStorageProfile : Returns the Provider VDC Storage Profile objects for the target organisation.
  • Set-ProviderVdcStorageProfile: Allows the settings to be adjusted on a Provider VDC Storage Profile

Use get-help cmlet -full for usage/examples. For further information please see: or contact me on twitter/Slack @AdrianBegg
