Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk

Gets virtual floppy disk objects from the VMM library.

Syntax

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

Parameter Set: EquivalentResourceParamSet
Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -FamilyName <String> [-Release <String> ] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ID
Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk [-ID <Guid> ] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: NameParamSet
Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -Name <String> [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk cmdlet gets one or more virtual floppy disk objects from the System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library. The virtual floppy disk file (either a Windows-based .vfd file or a VMware-based .flp file) that a virtual floppy disk object represents is stored on a library server.

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

Examples

1: Get all virtual floppy disks on all VMM library servers.

This command gets all virtual floppy disk objects VMM library on VMMServer01 and then displays information about these virtual floppy disk objects to the user. The virtual floppy disk files themselves are stored in library shares on library servers.


PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"

2: Get all virtual floppy disks on a specific VMM library server.

This command gets all virtual floppy disk objects stored on LibraryServer01 and displays information about these virtual floppy disk objects to the user.


PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk "VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.LibraryServer.Name "eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" }

3: Get all virtual floppy disks with a specific name on any VMM library server.

This command gets all virtual floppy disk objects named BootFloppy.vfd that are stored on any library server managed by VMM, and then displays information about these virtual floppy disk objects to the user.

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 server.


PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk | where { $_.Name -eq "BootFloppy.vfd" }
