Description

The Remove-SCVirtualDVDDrive cmdlet removes one or more virtual DVD drive objects from a hardware profile, a virtual machine, or a virtual machine template used in a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) environment. The cmdlet also deletes any .iso file that the virtual DVD drive uses from the file system on the library server.

This cmdlet returns the object upon success (with the property MarkedForDeletion set to True) or returns an error message upon failure.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a specific virtual DVD drive from a virtual machine

PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM01"
PS C:\> $DVDDrive = Get-SCVirtualDVDDrive -VM $VM | where { $_.Bus -eq 1 -and $_.LUN -eq 0 }
PS C:\> Remove-SCVirtualDVDDrive -VirtualDVDDrive $DVDDrive

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

The second command gets the virtual DVD drive object located on the first slot of the Secondary Channel (specified by -Bus 1 and -LUN 0) on the IDE bus on VM01 and then stores the virtual DVD drive object in the $DVDDrive variable.

The last command removes the virtual DVD drive object stored in $DVDDrive from VM01 and deletes any .iso file that this virtual DVD drive uses from the file system on the library server.

Example 2: Remove the third virtual DVD drive from a virtual machine

PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM02"
PS C:\> $DVDDrive = Get-SCVirtualDVDDrive -VM $VM
PS C:\> $DVDDrive[2] | Remove-SCVirtualDVDDrive

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM02 and stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command gets all virtual DVD drive objects connected to VM02 and stores each virtual DVD drive object in the $DVDDrive object array. This example assumes that VM02 has three virtual DVD drives and therefore the array contains three elements (counting 0 to 2).

The last command passes the third virtual DVD drive (object [2]) stored in $DVDDrive to the Remove-SCVirtualDVDDrive cmdlet, which removes this virtual DVD drive object from VM02 and deletes any .iso file used by this virtual DVD drive from the file system on the library server.

Required Parameters

-SourceBus

Specifies the source IDE bus for the drive.

Type:Byte
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SourceLUN

Specifies the source logical unit number (LUN) for a virtual DVD drive object on an IDE bus.

Type:Byte
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VirtualDVDDrive

Specifies a virtual DVD drive object.

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

Optional Parameters

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-JobGroup

Specifies an identifier for a series of commands that will run as a set just before the final command that includes the same job group identifier runs.

Type:Guid
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-JobVariable

Specifies that job progress is tracked and stored in the variable named by this parameter.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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
-PROTipID

Specifies the ID of the Performance and Resource Optimization tip (PRO tip) that triggered this action. This parameter lets you audit PRO tips.

Type:Guid
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RunAsynchronously

Indicates that the job runs asynchronously so that control returns to the command shell immediately.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
