Suspends a virtual machine managed by VMM.

Syntax

Suspend-SCVirtualMachine
       [-VM] <VM>
       [-RunAsynchronously]
       [-PROTipID <Guid>]
       [-JobVariable <String>]
       [-OnBehalfOfUser <String>]
       [-OnBehalfOfUserRole <UserRole>]
       [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Suspend-SCVirtualMachine cmdlet suspends one or more virtual machines deployed on hosts managed by Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). This cmdlet pauses activity on a virtual machine, and returns an object that represents that virtual machine in a paused state.

To resume running a suspended virtual machine, use the Resume-SCVirtualMachinecmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Suspend a specified virtual machine

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

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

The second command pauses the virtual machine stored in $VM, and displays information about the paused object.

Required Parameters

-VM

Specifies a virtual machine object.
