Description

The Get-SCVirtualDVDDrive cmdlet gets one or more Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) virtual DVD drive objects from a virtual machine object, a virtual machine template object, or a hardware profile object.

Examples

Example 1: Get virtual DVD drives from a virtual machine

PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM01"
PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualDVDDrive -VM $VM

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM01 and stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command gets all DVD drive objects on VM01 and displays information about these virtual DVD drives to the user.

Example 2: Get virtual DVD drives from a template

PS C:\> $VMTemplate = Get-SCVMTemplate | where { $_.Name -eq "VMTemplate01" }
PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualDVDDrive -Template $VMTemplate

The first command gets all virtual machine template objects stored in the VMM library, selects the template object named VMTemplate01, and then stores the object in the $Template variable.

The second command gets all virtual DVD drive objects on VMTemplate01 and displays information about these virtual DVD drives to the user.

Example 3: Get virtual DVD drives from a hardware profile

PS C:\> $HWProfile = Get-SCHardwareProfile | where { $_.Name -eq "NewHWProfile01" }
PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualDVDDrive -HardwareProfile $HWProfile

The first command gets all hardware profile objects in the VMM library, selects the profile object named NewHWProfile01, and then stores the object in the $HWProfile variable.

The second command gets all virtual DVD drive objects on NewHHWProfile01 and displays information about these virtual DVD drives to the user.

Parameters

-All

Indicates that this cmdlet gets all subordinate objects independent of the parent object. For example, the command Get-SCVirtualDiskDrive -All gets all virtual disk drive objects regardless of the virtual machine object or template object that each virtual disk drive object is associated with.

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

Specifies a hardware profile object.

Type:HardwareProfile
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ID

Specifies the numerical identifier as a globally unique identifier, or GUID, for a specific object.

Type:Guid
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-OnBehalfOfUser

Specifies a user name. This cmdlet operates on behalf of the user that this parameter specifies.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-OnBehalfOfUserRole

Specifies a user role. To obtain a user role, use the Get-SCUserRole cmdlet. This cmdlet operates on behalf of the user role that this parameter specifies.

Type:UserRole
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VM

Specifies a virtual machine object.

Type:VM
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMMServer

Specifies a VMM server object.

Type:ServerConnection
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMTemplate

Specifies a VMM template object used to create virtual machines.

Type:Template
Aliases:Template
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Outputs

VirtualDVDDrive

This cmdlet returns a VirtualDVDDrive object.

Notes

  • Requires a VMM virtual machine object, virtual machine template object, or hardware profile object. You can retrieve these objects by using the Get-SCVirtualMachine, Get-SCVMTemplate, or Get-SCHardwareProfile cmdlets, respectively.
