Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager

Find-SCCluster

Finds the specified failover cluster in a VMM environment.

Syntax

Parameter Set: UserCredentials
Find-SCCluster [-ComputerName] <String> -Credential <VMMCredential> [-EnumerateFileServers <Boolean> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-NonTrustedDomainHost] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ServerCredentials
Find-SCCluster -LibraryServer <LibraryServer> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: XenServerHost
Find-SCCluster [-ComputerName] <String> -Credential <VMMCredential> -XenServerHost [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-TCPPort <UInt32> ] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Find-SCCluster cmdlet queries System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) for the specified failover cluster or one of its nodes. If the cluster is found, VMM returns an object that contains more information about the failover cluster. Information returned by Find-SCCluster includes cluster name, nodes of the cluster, and highly available file servers hosted by the cluster.

For more information about Find-SCCluster, type: "Get-Help Find-SCCluster -online".

Parameters

-ComputerName<String>

Specifies the name of a computer that VMM can uniquely identify on your network. Valid formats are: FQDN, IPv4 or IPv6 address, or NetBIOS name.

NOTE: See the examples for a specific cmdlet to determine how that cmdlet specifies the computer name.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Cluster

Examples

1: Find all nodes of a failover cluster from the cluster name.

The first command gets the Run As account object named RunAsAccount01 and stores the object in the $Credential variable.

The second command queries VMM for the failover cluster named VMHostCluster01 and stores the cluster object in $Cluster, using $Credential to provide the Run As account to Find-SCCluster. The ComputerName parameter treats the name of the cluster as if it were the name of a computer.

The last command displays the FQDNs of the cluster nodes to the user.


PS C:\> $Credential = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount01"PS C:\> $Cluster = Find-SCCluster -ComputerName "VMHostCluster01.Contoso.com" -Credential $CredentialPS C:\> $Cluster.ClusterNodes

2: Find all nodes of a failover cluster from one of the node names.

The first command gets the Run As account object named RunAsAccount01 and stores the object in the $Credential variable.

The second command queries VMM for a failover cluster node named VMHostNode02 and stores the returned cluster object in $Cluster.

The third command displays the FQDN of the cluster to the user.

The last command displays the FQDN of each node in the cluster to the user.


PS C:\> $Credential = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount01"PS C:\> $Cluster = Find-SCCluster -ComputerName "VMHostNode02.Contoso.com" -Credential $CredentialPS C:\> $Cluster.NamePS C:\> $Cluster.ClusterNodes

3: Find, by using the cluster name, all highly available file servers hosted by that failover cluster.

The first command gets the RunAs account object RunAsAccount01 and stores the object in the $Credential variable.

The second command queries VMM for the failover cluster named VMHostCluster03 and stores the cluster object in $Cluster.

The third command displays the FQDNs of all highly available file servers hosted by the failover cluster stored in $Cluster. This example assumes that the failover cluster is hosting at least one highly available file server.


PS C:\> $Credential = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount01"PS C:\> $Cluster = Find-SCCluster -ComputerName "VMHostCluster03.Contoso.com" -Credential $CredentialPS C:\> $Cluster.HAFileServers
