Description

The Get-VMDvdDrive cmdlet gets the DVD drives attached to a virtual machine or snapshot. This cmdlet has no ControllerType parameter, as the Get-VMHardDiskDrive cmdlet does, because virtual DVD drives can be attached only to the IDE controller.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\>Get-VMDvdDrive -VMName Test

Gets the virtual DVD drives from virtual machine Test.

Example 2

PS C:\>Get-VM -Name Test | Get-VMDvdDrive -ControllerNumber 1

Gets the virtual DVD drives from IDE controller 1 of virtual machine Test.

Example 3

PS C:\>Get-VMIdeController -VMName TestVM -ControllerNumber 1 -ComputerName Development | Get-VMDvdDrive

Gets the virtual DVD drives from IDE controller 1 of virtual machine TestVM located on Hyper-V server Development.

Example 4

PS C:\>Get-VMSnapshot -VMName TestVM -Name 'Before applying updates' | Get-VMDvdDrive

Gets the virtual DVD drives from snapshot Before applying updates of virtual machine TestVM.
