GetLibraryAuditRecords.ps1

Updated: September 10, 2009

Applies To: Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 SP1

When a System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) job completes, an audit record is saved that lists the changes that the job made to the VMM object. To access the audit record information for a job, get the job by using the Get-Job cmdlet with the Full parameter. The Full parameter indicates that the job should be returned with an audit record.

The following script gets all library refresh jobs and then lists the previous and new values for the properties that were changed during each of the jobs.

# Get the audit records for each library refresh job.
