Description

The Get-SCStep cmdlet gets the steps for the specified Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) job.

A job is composed of one or more steps, each of which has its own status. An earlier step must complete or be skipped before the next step runs.

Examples

Example 1: Get all steps for a specified job

PS C:\> $Job = Get-SCJob -ID "cb3a0f0a-9fbc-4bd0-a999-3fae8cd77177"
PS C:\> $Steps = Get-SCStep -Job $Job
PS C:\> $Steps.Children

The first command gets the VMM job object with the ID cb3a0f0a-9fbc-4bd0-a999-3fae8cd77177 and stores the object in the $Job variable.

The second command gets the step object for the VMM job in $Job.

The last command lists information about each step for the VMM job, including a description of the step, its progress, and its status.
