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

Parameter Set: ID

Detailed Description

The Get-SCCustomResource cmdlet gets a custom resource from the VMM library. A custom resource is a folder-based library object in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). The resource is declared at the folder level, and the contents of the folder is unknown to VMM.

To add a custom resource to the library, create a folder with a .cr extension, place content in the folder, and then use the VMM console to drag the folder to a VMM library share. VMM discovers and imports the folder into the library as a custom resource.

Parameters

-All

Indicates that this cmdlet 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.
