Hey all! 

 

I was needing help from the pro's at VMTurbo to create a group just for a certain type of VM so I could report off of them.  Figured I would pass on their knowledge on how they were able to help.

 

So we label our vm's according to its function, I.E. PRD=Production, DEV=Development, TST=Test, you get the idea...

I needed to create a group for storage placement and wanted to exclude DEV and TST from going on the higher tiered storage.

 

How to filter out DEV boxes?  Oh.. and exclude a couple of dev boxes from the list in the process....

Here is the argument:

 

^DEV((?!UAG01|VAS01).)*$

 

So we had two vms, named DEVUAG01 and DEVVAS01 and so needed to exclude them from this list.

 

I know some of you may be saying, well, duh..  but for me.. I was at a loss.  This was exactly what I needed!

Anyway.. More to come later..

Have a great day!
