The Get-PlatformIdentifier cmdlet gathers identifiers into an XML document. These items can identify a computer. These identifiers are the MAC addresses, SMBIOS GUID, computer serial number, the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) public endorsement key, and a name that you supply.

Examples

Example 1: Get identifiers

PS C:\>Get-PlatformIdentifier -Name "Computer03"

The command gets the properties that identify a computer, and returns them in an XML document, which includes the specified name.

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies a name that this cmdlet adds to the XML that it creates.

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
-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
-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.
