Description

The Get-SCVMTemplate cmdlet gets virtual machine template objects from the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library.

For information about how virtual machine templates are used to create new virtual machines, type Get-Help New-Template -Detailed.

Examples

Example 1: Get all templates stored in the library

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

This command gets all template objects from the VMM library on VMMServer01, and then displays information about these templates.

Example 2: Get all templates stored in the library that have a similar name

PS C:\> Get-SCVMTemplate -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -like "Windows Server 2008*" }

This command gets all template objects from the VMM library on VMMServer01 whose name begins with "Windows Server 2008," and then displays information about these templates.

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.
