Check for Thick Provisioned Disk Space in VMWare

Check-for-Thick-Provisioned-Disk-Space

If you want to run a check against your VMWare infrastructure for virtual machines that have thick provisioned disks, you can use VMWare PowerCLI to do this quickly and easily.

Our step by step guide below will show you what you need to do to bring back the results that you need.

Check for Thick Provisioned Disk – Step by Step Guide

Download VMWare PowerCLI

The first thing that you need to do is download the VMWare PowerCLI utility from the VMWare website. You can do this by clicking the link below:

Download VMWare PowerCLI

Go ahead and install this onto a machine that is on the same network as the VMWare infrastructure.

Connecting to the vCSA

Once you have installed PowerCLI, run the utility as an administrator (elevated):

open powercli

This will now go through and install the modules that PowerCLI requires and you should be left with a console ready to enter commands:

VMWare PowerCLI Console

Now you will need to connect to the vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA). To do this, run the following command:

Connect-VIServer -Server vCSA-1 -User admin@vmware.local -Password Pa55w0rd

where:

  • vCSA-1 = Your VCSA server
  • admin@vmware.local = administrator username with access to the vCSA
  • Pa55w0rd = Your administrator password

This should now show that you are connected to the vCSA.

Thick Disk Provision Command

Now that you are connected successfully to your local vCSA, you can run this command to get the Thick Provisioned Disks and which virtual machines that they are on:

Get-Datastore | Get-VM | Get-HardDisk | Where {$_.storageformat -eq "EagerZeroedThick" } | Select Parent, Name, CapacityGB, storageformat | FT -AutoSize

This will then output into a formatted table within the PowerCLI console, the full list of virtual machines, which disk it is, the capacity (GB) of the disk and the storage format.

Windows 10 Language Packs

windows language pack

We manage a number of businesses across the world and we very often have to ensure that end-users in different countries have their required Windows languages available to them.

We do this in two ways, one is that when Windows devices get built for a user in, let’s say France, the System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) Operating System Deployment (OSD) task sequence is set up so that the French language pack is installed for them. This is based on the selection that the local IT technicians select during the pre-deployment OSD UDI wizard.

The second option is pushing (or making available) through the Software Center on an end-users machine.

There are many other ways, like Group Policy, Windows Deployment Services (WDS), Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) and even the old fashioned way of doing a manual installation.

But before you can carry out any of that, you will need the language pack downloads. This, surprisingly, was harder than we thought, just a quick Google and there they are – but they weren’t!

We eventually found a load of downloads on different locations so we have collated them all, stuffed them into the table below and you can now download the language pack you require when you need it.
