Description

The Get-SCOperatingSystem cmdlet gets one or more operating system objects from the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) database. An operating system object is used to identify the operating system that is installed on a particular virtual hard disk.

Examples

Example 1: Get all operating system objects in your VMM environment

PS C:\> Get-SCOperatingSystem -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"

This command gets all operating system objects from the VMM database on VMMServer01 and displays information about these operating system objects to the user.

Example 2: Get all operating system objects in your VMM environment with the specified processor architecture

PS C:\> Get-OperatingSystem -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where {$_.Architecture -eq "amd64"} | Format-Table -Property Name,Architecture
