Get-VIEvent (or VIEventPlus): who unmounted a datastore and when

This post was originally published on this site

I am looking for assistance in determining who unmounted a datastore and when they did so. The unmounted datastore is generating a backup failure and I’d like to approach them to find out if the storage device is going away as well.


Get-VIEvent or Get-VIEventPlus are likely the tools I’m to work with, but I’m not clear on how to get the exact data I’m looking for.


For argument sake, let’s call the datastore st290001no_prd_ds05. It would be nice to identify what cluster or esxi hosts the datastore was deleted from.
