Description

The Set-SCCustomResource cmdlet sets the properties of a custom resource. A custom resource is a folder-based library object in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). The resource is declared at the folder level, and the contents of the folder are unknown to VMM.

To add a custom resource to the VMM library, create a folder with a .CR extension, place content in the folder, and then use the VMM console to drag the folder to a VMM library share. VMM discovers and imports the folder into the VMM library as a custom resource.

Examples

Example 1: Change the description and release of a custom resource

PS C:\> $CR = Get-SCCustomResource -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -eq "Folder.CR" -and $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" }
PS C:\> Set-SCCustomResource -CustomResource $CR -Release "v1.1" -Description "My LOB Application version 1.1 Install Package"

The first command gets the custom resource object named Folder.CR on LibraryServer01 from the VMM library on VMMServer01 and then stores the object in the $CR variable.

The second command changes the values for the Release and Description properties of the custom resource object stored in $CR.

Required Parameters

-CustomResource

Specifies an array of custom resource objects.

Type:CustomResource[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SetAsEquivalent

Indicates that the cmdlet marks multiple custom resources as equivalent.

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

Optional Parameters

-Description

Specifies a description for the custom resource.

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

Enables an object when set to $True, or disables an object when set to $False. For example, if you want to upgrade software on a virtual machine template, you can disable the template object in the VMM library to temporarily prevent users from using that object.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-FamilyName

Specifies a family name for a physical resource in the VMM library. This value is used in conjunction with Release, Namespace, and Type to establish equivalency among library resources.

Type:String
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
-Name

Specifies the name of a VMM object.

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

Specifies the owner of a VMM object in the form of a valid domain user account.

  • Example format: -Owner "Contoso\PattiFuller"
  • Example format: -Owner "PattiFuller@Contoso"
Type:String
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
-Release

Specifies a string that describes the release of a library resource. VMM automatically creates a release value for every resource imported into the library. After the resource has been imported, the string can be customized.

Type:String
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
-SharePath

Specifies a path to a valid library share on an existing library server that uses a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path.

Example format: -SharePath "\\LibServer01\LibShare"

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

Specifies a user role object.

Type:UserRole
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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

Outputs

CustomResource

This cmdlet returns a CustomResource object.
