Description

The Get-SCHardwareProfile cmdlet gets one or more hardware profile objects from the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library. You can use a hardware profile repeatedly to create new virtual machines or virtual machine templates.

Examples

Example 1: Get all hardware profiles from the library

PS C:\> Get-SCHardwareProfile -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"

This command gets all hardware profile objects from the library on VMMServer01 and displays information about these profiles to the user.

Example 2: Get a specific hardware profile from the library

C:\> Get-SCHardwareProfile | where { $_.Name -eq "NewHWProfile01" }

This command gets the hardware profile object named NewHWProfile01 and displays information about this hardware profile to the user.

Optional 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.
