VMware: List VMFS version and blocksize of all datastores with PowerCLI

For a SAN to SAN migration I need to list all our datastores and blocksizes, It couldn’t be easier to do this with a script. LucD has written a great script to list VMFS Name, VMFS Version and VMFS Blocksize

New-VIProperty -Name VMFSVersion -ObjectType Datastore `      -Value {           param($ds)           $ds.ExtensionData.Info.Vmfs.Version      } `      -BasedONextensionProperty ‘Info’ `      -Force

New-VIProperty -Name VMFSBlockSizeMB -ObjectType Datastore `      -Value {           param($ds)           $ds.ExtensionData.Info.Vmfs.BlockSizeMB      } `      -BasedONextensionProperty ‘Info’ `      -Force

Get-Datastore | Select Name,VMFSVersion,VMFSBlockSizeMB

Output:
