Get-SCComputerConfiguration

Get-SCComputerConfiguration

Gets physical machine configuration objects from the VMM database.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Get-SCComputerConfiguration [-SourceComputerName <String> ] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-SCComputerConfiguration cmdlet gets one or more computer configuration objects from the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) database that are associated with one or more physical computers. Information about a computer's hardware, physical disks, and operating system is stored in the machine configuration object.

A physical machine configuration is used by the New-SCP2V cmdlet when it converts a physical machine to a virtual machine. To perform this conversion, you use a physical computer as a model from which to create an identical, or nearly identical, virtual machine that has the same identity (ComputerName.DomainName) as the physical machine.

Parameters

-SourceComputerName<String>

Specifies the source computer for a physical-to-virtual (P2V) machine conversion performed by VMM. Valid formats: FQDN, IPv4 or IPv6 address, or NetBIOS name.

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

Examples

1: Get the computer configuration object for a particular physical machine.

This command gets the machine configuration for the physical machine named P2VSource01.Contoso.com from the VMM database and displays information about this object to the user.


PS C:\> Get-SCComputerConfiguration | where { $_.Name -eq "P2VSource01.Contoso.com" }

2: Get all computer configuration objects in your VMM environment.

This command gets all existing machine configuration objects on VMMServer01 and displays information about these machine configuration objects to the user.


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