Description

The New-SCCustomProperty cmdlet creates a custom property definition in the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) database.

You can create a custom property for the following object types:

- VM

  • Template
  • VMHost
  • HostCluster
  • VMHostGroup
  • ServiceTemplate
  • ServiceInstance
  • ComputerTier
  • Cloud

Examples

Example 1: Create a custom property

PS C:\> $CustomProp = New-SCCustomProperty -Name "Cost Center" -AddMember "VM"
PS C:\> $CustomProp

The first command creates a custom property object named Cost Center with VM as a member and stores the object in the $CustomProp variable.

The second command displays the properties of the custom property object stored in $CustomProp to the user.

Parameters

-AddMember

Specifies an array of members that this cmdlet adds to an object that has the concept of members, such as a group. For example, this cmdlet can add one or more Active Directory® Domain Services domain users or groups to a user role. Specify members in the following formats:

- Domain\User

  • User
  • User@Domain
  • Domain\LabGroupAlias
  • LabGroupAlias

    The lab group alias is an Active Directory Domain Services security group, not an email alias.
