Notes

  • This cmldet requires a VMM virtualization manager object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-SCVirtualizationManager cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Refresh all VMware vCenter Servers managed by VMM

The first command retrieves all virtualization manager objects from the VMM database on VMMServer01, and then stores the returned objects in the $VirtManagers array.

The second command uses a Foreach statement to refresh the properties of the objects stored in $VirtManagers so that current information about these virtualization managers displays in the VMM console.

For more information about the standard Windows PowerShellForeach statement, type Get-Help about_Foreach.


PS C:\> $VirtManagers = Get-SCVirtualizationManager -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Foreach ($VManager in $VirtManagers) {Read-SCVirtualizationManager -VirtualizationManager $VManager}

Example 2: Refresh a specific VMware vCenter Server managed by VMM

The first command gets the virtualization manager object named VirtMgrServer01 from VMMServer01, and then stores the object in $VirtManager.

The second command refreshes the properties for the object stored in $VirtManager so that current information about this virtualization manager displays in the VMM console.


PS C:\> $VirtManager = Get-SCVirtualizationManager -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" -ComputerName "VirtMgrServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Read-SCVirtualizationManager -VirtualizationManager $VirtManager
