Add-SCOperatingSystem

Adds an operating system to an application profile to specify which operating systems the application profile is compatible with.

Syntax

Add-SCOperatingSystem -ApplicationProfile <ApplicationProfile> [-JobVariable <String>]
 -OperatingSystem <OperatingSystem> [-PROTipID <Guid>] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>]
 [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-SCOperatingSystem cmdlet adds an operating system to an application profile object. Setting the operating system for an application profile determines which operating systems the profile is compatibile with. If no operating system is set, by default the profile is compatible with all operating systems.

Examples

Example 1: Add an operating system to an application profile

PS C:\> $AppProfile = Get-SCApplicationProfile -Name "SvcWebAppProfile01"
PS C:\> $OS = Get-SCOperatingSystem -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where {$_.Name -eq "64-bit edition of Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise"}
PS C:\> Add-SCOperatingSystem -ApplicationProfile $AppProfile -OperatingSystem $OS

The first command gets the application profile object named SvcWebAppProfile01 and stores the object in the $AppProfile variable.

The second command gets the operating system object named 64-bit edition of Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise from VMMServer01 and stores the object in the $OS variable.

The last command adds the operating system stores in $OS to the application profile stored in $AppProfile.
