Parameter Set: EquivalencySet
Set-SCVirtualFloppyDisk [-VirtualFloppyDisks] <List<VirtualFloppyDisk>> -FamilyName <String> -Release <String> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-SCVirtualFloppyDisk cmdlet changes one or more properties of a virtual floppy disk used in a System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) environment. A virtual floppy disk file used in VMM is either a Windows-based .vfd file or a VMware-based .flp file.

Properties that you can change include:

- Description

- Enabled

- Name

- Owner

- SharePath

You can store a virtual floppy disk file in the VMM library, or you can add the virtual floppy disk to a virtual machine.

<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.

  • VirtualFloppyDisk

Notes

  • Requires a VMM virtual floppy disk object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk cmdlet.

Examples

1: Change the description of a virtual floppy disk.

The first command gets the floppy disk object named BootFloppy.vfd from the VMM library on VMMServer01 whose file is stored on LibraryServer01, and then stores the object in the $VFD variable.

The second command changes the description of the virtual floppy disk object stored in $VFD to "Latest Boot Floppy".


PS C:\> $VFD = Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"  | where { $_.Name -eq "BootFloppy.vfd" -and $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" }PS C:\> Set-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VirtualFloppyDisk $VFD -Description "Latest Boot Floppy"

2: Disable a virtual floppy disk.

The first command gets the virtual floppy disk object named BootFloppy.vfd whose file is stored on LibraryServer01, and then stores the object in the $VFD variable.

The second command disables the virtual floppy disk object stored in $VFD.


PS C:\> $VFD = Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -eq "BootFloppy.vfd" -and $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" }PS C:\> Set-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VirtualFloppyDisk $VFD -Enabled $FALSE

3: Change the name of a VMware-based virtual floppy disk.

The first command gets the floppy disk object named ESXBootFloppy.flp on LibraryServer01 and then stores the object in the $FLP variable.

The second command changes the name of the virtual floppy disk object stored in $FLP to ESXBootFloppy-Beta.flp.

NOTE: By default, the name of a virtual floppy disk object in the library is the same name (including the extension) as the name of the actual virtual floppy disk file on the library share. Changing the name of the virtual floppy disk object in the library does not change the name of the actual virtual floppy disk file stored on the library server.


PS C:\> $FLP = Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -eq "ESXBootFloppy.flp" -and $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" }PS C:\> Set-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VirtualFloppyDisk $FLP -Name "ESXBootFloppy-Beta.flp"

4: Specify an owner for all virtual floppy disks with an "Unknown" owner.

This command gets all virtual floppy disk objects from the VMM library whose owner is "Unknown", and then specifies an owner for each virtual floppy disk object.


PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where {$_.Owner -eq "Unknown"} | Set-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -Owner "Contoso\ReneeLo"
