Description

The Debug-VM cmdlet debugs a virtual machine.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> debug-vm "VM to Debug" -InjectNonMaskableInterrupt -Force

This example injects a non-maskable interrupt into the virtual machine named "VM to Debug". A kernel debugger should be connected to the guest operating system before attempting to do this.

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies an array of names of virtual machines to be debugged.

Type:String[]
Aliases:VMName
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VM

Specifies an array of virtual machine objects that are to be debugged. To obtain virtual machine objects, use the Get-VM cmdlet.

Type:VirtualMachine[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ComputerName

Specifies an array of Hyper-V hosts. The cmdlet debugs the virtual machines on the hosts you specify.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Credential

Specifies one or more user accounts that have permission to perform this action. The default is the current user.

Type:PSCredential[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

Forces the command to run without asking for user confirmation.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InjectNonMaskableInterrupt

Indicates that the cmdlet sends a nonmaskable interrupt (NMI) to the virtual machine. An interrupt handler must process a nonmaskable interrupt.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Passthru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
