Read-SCVirtualizationManager

Refreshes the properties of a VMware vCenter Server so that the VMM console displays updated information about vCenter Server entities.

Syntax

Read-SCVirtualizationManager [-VirtualizationManager] <VirtualizationManager> [-JobVariable <String>]
 [-PROTipID <Guid>] [-RunAsynchronously] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Read-SCVirtualizationManager cmdlet refreshes the properties of a VMware vCenter Server managed by Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) so that the VMM console displays updated information about vCenter Server entities.

Examples

Example 1: Refresh all VMware vCenter Servers managed by VMM

PS C:\> $VirtManagers = Get-SCVirtualizationManager -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> ForEach ($VManager in $VirtManagers) {Read-SCVirtualizationManager -VirtualizationManager $VManager}

The first command retrieves all virtualizaton manager objects from the VMM database on VMMServer01 and stores the returned objects in the $VirtManagers array.

The second command uses a ForEach loop statement to refresh the properties of the objects stored in $VirtManagers so that current information about these virtualization managers displays in the VMM console.

For more information about the standard Windows PowerShell ForEach loop statement, type Get-Help about_ForEach.

Example 2: Refresh a specific VMware vCenter Server managed by VMM

PS C:\> $VirtManager = Get-SCVirtualizationManager -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" -ComputerName "VirtMgrServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Read-SCVirtualizationManager -VirtualizationManager $VirtManager

The first command gets the virtualizaton manager object named VirtMgrServer01 from VMMServer01 and stores the object in $VirtManager.

The second command refreshes the properties for the object stored in $VirtManager so that current information about this virtualization manager displays in the VMM console.
