Description

The Set-VMDvdDrive cmdlet configures the controller and location of a virtual DVD drive.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Set-VMDvdDrive -VMName TestVM -Path .\WinBuild.iso

Configures the virtual DVD drive of virtual machine TestVM to use WinBuild.iso as its media.

Example 2

PS C:\> Set-VMDvdDrive -VMName TestVM -ControllerNumber 1 -ControllerLocation 0 -Path $null

Configures the virtual DVD drive at IDE 1,0 of virtual machine TestVM to use no media. (This ejects any existing media from the virtual DVD drive.)

Example 3

PS C:\> Get-VMDvdDrive -VMName TestVM -ControllerNumber 1 -ControllerLocation 0 | Set-VMDvdDrive -ToControllerLocation 1

Moves virtual DVD drive from IDE 1,0 to IDE 1,1 on virtual machine TestVM.
