Description

The Stop-PcsvDevice cmdlet shuts down a remote hardware device by using Web Services for Management (WS-Management) or Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI). The cmdlet puts the device in the Disabled state, which corresponds to a hard shutdown of the hardware device. Specify the remote hardware device by the management name or IP address, provide credentials necessary to shut down the remote hardware device, and specify which management protocol to use. The credentials must have administrator permissions on the remote hardware device.

Examples

Example 1: Shut down a computer

PS C:\> $Credential = Get-Credential
PS C:\>Stop-PcsvDevice -TargetAddress "10.1.12.43" -Credential $Credential -ManagementProtocol IPMI

This example shuts down a computer.

The first command uses the Get-Credential cmdlet to create a credential, and then stores it in the $Credential variable. The cmdlet prompts you for a user name and password. For more information, type Get-Help Get-Credential.

The second command shuts down the computer that has the management IP address 10.1.12.43 by using the IPMI management protocol. The command specifies the credential object, stored in the $Credential variable, needed to connect to the computer. By default, the cmdlet prompts you before it stops the remote hardware device.

Required Parameters

-Credential

Specifies a PSCredential object based on a user name and password. To obtain a PSCredential object, use the Get-Credential cmdlet. For more information, type Get-Help Get-Credential. This parameter specifies the credential for the remote hardware device.

Type:PSCredential
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InputObject

Specifies the input object that is used in a pipeline command.

Type:CimInstance[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ManagementProtocol

Specifies a management protocol used to communicate with a device. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • WSMAN
  • IPMI

Refer to your hardware documentation for supported management protocols.

Specify WSMAN for devices that represent information by using Systems Management Architecture for Server Hardware (SMASH), Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH), or Physical Computer System View profiles.

Type:ManagementProtocol
Aliases:MP
Parameter Sets:WSMan, IPMI
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-TargetAddress

Specifies the name or IP address of the management port on the remote hardware device. For server hardware, this is typically a dedicated Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) IP address. For other devices, like network switches, this is the IP address of their management port. For desktop and mobile devices, the BMC sometimes shares the same IP address as the computer.

Type:String
Aliases:CN, ComputerName, IpAddress
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

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

Specifies an authentication method to use for devices managed by using WS-Management. Do not specify this parameter for devices managed by using IPMI. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Basic
  • Digest
  • Default

If you specify Default for this parameter and a value of WSMAN for the ManagementProtocol parameter, the cmdlet uses Basic authentication.

Type:Authentication
Parameter Sets:Default, Basic, Digest
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
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[]
Aliases:Session
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
-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
-Port

Specifies a port on the remote computer to use for the management connection. If you do not specify a port, the cmdlet uses the following default values:

  • IPMI and WSMAN over HTTP. Port 623.
  • WSMAN over HTTPS. Port 664.
Type:UInt16
Position:4
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ShutdownType
Type:PossibleShutdownTypes
Parameter Sets:Forced, Graceful
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SkipCACheck

Indicates that the client connects by using HTTPS without validating that a trusted CA signed the server certificate. Do not specify this parameter if you specify a value of IPMI for the ManagmentProtocol parameter.

Do not specify this parameter unless you can establish trust in another way, such as if the remote computer is part of a network that is physically secure and isolated, or if the remote computer is a trusted host in a Windows Remote Management (WinRM) configuration.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SkipCNCheck

Indicates that the certificate CN of the server does not need to match the host name of the server. Do not specify this parameter if you specify a value of IPMI for the ManagmentProtocol parameter.

Specify this parameter only for managing devices by using WS-Management over HTTPS. Be sure to specify this parameter only for trusted computers.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SkipRevocationCheck

Indicates that the cmdlet skips the revocation check of server certificates. Do not specify this parameter if you specify a value of IPMI for the ManagmentProtocol parameter.

Be sure to specify this parameter only for trusted computers.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-TimeoutSec

Specifies how long to wait, in seconds, for a response from the remote hardware device. After this period, the cmdlet abandons the connection attempt.

Type:UInt32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-UseSSL

Indicates that the server connects to the target computer by using SSL. WSMAN encrypts all content transmitted over the network. Specify this parameter to use the additional protection of HTTPS instead of HTTP. If you specify this parameter and SSL is not available on the connection port, the command fails.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
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

Inputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/HardwareManagement/MSFT_PCSVDevice

A MSFT_PCSVDevice object that is the target for the operation. To obtain a MSFT_PCSVDevice object, use the Get-PcsvDevice cmdlet.

Outputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/HardwareManagement/MSFT_PCSVDevice

The cmdlet only returns an MSFT_PCSVDevice object if you specify the PassThru parameter.
