  1. You can use the command kubectl get virtualmachineclasses to see what classes are available to you to use within your Namespace.
  2. You can use the command kubectl get sc to see what storageclasses are available to use within your Namespace.  Please note that as of this documentation release in June of 2021, it is required to use a VMFS datastore to deploy the Tanzu Kubernetes Guest Cluster nodes to.
