Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk

Gets virtual floppy disk objects from the VMM library.

Syntax

Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk [-All] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -FamilyName <String> [-Release <String>] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>]
 [<CommonParameters>]
Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk [-ID <Guid>] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -Name <String> [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk cmdlet gets one or more virtual floppy disk objects from the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library. The virtual floppy disk file (either a Windows-based .vfd file or a VMware-based .flp file) that a virtual floppy disk object represents is stored on a library server.

Examples

Example 1: Get all virtual floppy disks on all VMM library servers

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

This command gets all virtual floppy disk objects VMM library on VMMServer01 and then displays information about these virtual floppy disk objects to the user. The virtual floppy disk files themselves are stored in library shares on library servers.

Example 2: Get all virtual floppy disks on a specific VMM library server

PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" }

This command gets all virtual floppy disk objects stored on LibraryServer01 and displays information about these virtual floppy disk objects to the user.

Example 3: Get all virtual floppy disks with a specific name on any VMM library server

PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk | where { $_.Name -eq "BootFloppy.vfd" }

This command gets all virtual floppy disk objects named BootFloppy.vfd that are stored on any library server managed by VMM, and then displays information about these virtual floppy disk objects to the user.

Note: By default, the name of a virtual floppy disk object in the library is the same name (including the extension) as the name of the actual virtual floppy disk file on the library server.

Parameters

-All

Indicates that this cmdlet gets all subordinate objects independent of the parent object. For example, the command Get-SCVirtualDiskDrive -All gets all virtual disk drive objects regardless of the virtual machine object or template object that each virtual disk drive object is associated with.

Type:SwitchParameter
Required:False
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
Required:True
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ID

Specifies the numerical identifier as a globally unique identifier, or GUID, for a specific object.

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

Specifies the name of a VMM object.

Type:String
Required:True
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
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMMServer

Specifies a VMM server object.

Type:ServerConnection
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Outputs

VirtualFloppyDisk

This cmdlet returns a **VirtualFloppyDisk** object.
