Description

The Get-VamtProduct cmdlet retrieves the record of a product or list of products from a dep_nextref_vamt database. The results are saved to a file, or a Microsoft.Licensing.VolumeActivation.Product object is returned.

Examples

Example 1: Save all products in a file

PS C:\>Get-VamtProduct > c:\users\me\windowslist.txt

This command outputs the list of all products in the dep_nextref_vamt database to the specified file.

Example 2: Get all Windows products that are not licensed

PS C:\>$Products = Get-VamtProduct -ProductName "windows" | where { $_.licensestatus -ne 'Licensed' }

This command returns all Windows products whose license status does not equal licensed.

Default value:None

-DbConnectionString

Specifies the database that the product or list of products are retrieved from. If no database connection string is provided, dep_nextref_vamt attempts to use the database that the dep_nextref_vamt user console used on the local computer. If dep_nextref_vamt does not find a database, it returns an error. You can find the connection string in the dep_nextref_vamt UI in the Preferences dialog box. On the menu bar, click View, and then click Preferences to open the Volume Activation Management Tool Preferences dialog box. The connection string is in the Database Settings section under Current connection string.
