Detailed Description

The Get-VMDvdDrive cmdlet gets the DVD drives attached to a virtual machine or snapshot. This cmdlet has no ControllerType parameter, as the Get-VMHardDiskDrive cmdlet does, because virtual DVD drives can be attached only to the IDE controller.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String[]>

Specifies one or more Hyper-V hosts from which the DVD drives are to be retrieved. NetBIOS names, IP addresses, and fully-qualified domain names are allowable. The default is the local computer — use “localhost” or a dot (“.”) to specify the local computer explicitly.
