Updated: September 27, 2012

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager

Get-SCVirtualCOMPort

Gets a VMM virtual communication (COM) port object from a virtual machine, a virtual machine template, or a hardware profile.

Syntax

Parameter Set: All
Get-SCVirtualCOMPort -All [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: HardwareProfile
Get-SCVirtualCOMPort -HardwareProfile <HardwareProfile> [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: Template
Get-SCVirtualCOMPort -VMTemplate <Template> [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: VM
Get-SCVirtualCOMPort -VM <VM> [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-SCVirtualCOMPort cmdlet gets one or both System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) virtual COM port objects from a virtual machine object, a virtual machine template object, or a hardware profile object.

A virtual COM port can connect to a physical port on a virtual machine host server, to a text file, or to a named pipe. Each virtual machine, virtual machine template, and hardware profile contains exactly two COM ports.

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

Parameters

-All

Retrieves a full list of all subordinate objects independent of the parent object. For example, the command Get-SCVirtualDiskDrive -All retrieves all virtual disk drive objects regardless of the virtual machine object or template object that each virtual disk drive object is associated with.

<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.

  • VirtualCOMPort

Notes

  • Requires a VMM virtual machine object, virtual machine template object, or hardware profile object. You can retrieve these objects by using the Get-SCVirtualMachine, Get-SCVMTemplate, and Get-SCHardwareProfile cmdlets, respectively.

Examples

1: Get COM ports from a virtual machine.

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM01 and stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command retrieves the virtual COM port objects on VM01 and displays information about these ports to the user.


PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM01"PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualCOMPort -VM $VM

2: Get COM ports from a template.

The first command gets the virtual machine template object VMTemplate01 and stores the object in the $VMTemplate variable.

The second command gets the virtual COM port objects VMTemplate01 and displays information about these ports to the user.


PS C:\> $VMTemplate = Get-SCVMTemplate | where { $_.Name -eq "VMTemplate01" }PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualCOMPort -VMTemplate $VMTemplate

3: Get COM ports from a hardware profile.

The first command gets the hardware profile object named NewHWProfile01 and stores the object in the $HWProfile variable.

The second command gets the virtual COM port objects NewHWProfile01 and displays information about these ports to the user.


PS C:\> $HWProfile = Get-SCHardwareProfile | where { $_.Name -eq "NewHWProfile01" }PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualCOMPort -HardwareProfile $HWProfile
