Read-SCVMHost

Refreshes virtual machine host properties in the VMM console.

Syntax

Parameter Set: DefaultRefresh
Read-SCVMHost [-VMHost] <Host> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: OutOfBandRefresh
Read-SCVMHost [-VMHost] <Host> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RefreshOutOfBandProperties] [-RunAsynchronously] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Read-SCVMHost cmdlet refreshes the properties of a virtual machine host so that the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) console displays updated information about the host.

Host properties that this cmdlet updates include:

-- Name
-- Operating system
-- Status, such as Responding
-- Host volumes, typically, addition or removal of drive letters, mount points, as well as used and available space
-- Network adapters, addition or removal

Parameters

-JobVariable<String>

Specifies that job progress is tracked and stored in the variable named by this parameter.

-RefreshOutOfBandProperties

Refreshes available computer hardware properties through the out-of-band baseboard management controller (BMC). This process is different from the regular host refreshing logic, because the host refresher goes through the VMM agent inside the operating system (in-band). The properties that are refreshed through BMC are different from those in the in-band refresher.

-VMHost<Host>

Specifies a virtual machine host object. VMM supports Hyper-V hosts, VMware ESX hosts, and Citrix XenServer hosts.

For more information about each type of host, type Get-Help Add-SCVMHost -detailed. See the examples for a specific cmdlet to determine how that cmdlet uses this parameter.

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Host

Examples

Example 1: Refresh information about a specific host

The first command gets the host object named VMHost01, and then stores the object in the $VMHost variable.

The second command refreshes the properties for VMHost01 so that current information about this host will appear in the VMM console.


PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01"
PS C:\> Read-SCVMHost -VMHost $VMHost

Example 2: Refresh information about all hosts

This command refreshes information about all hosts managed by VMMServer01 so that current information about each host will appear in the VMM Console.


PS C:\> Get-SCVMHost -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | Read-SCVMHost

Example 3: Refresh information about a given host through its OOB channel

This command refreshes information about host VMHost02 using its out-of-band interface so that current information about the host appears in the VMM console.


PS C:\> Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost02" | Read-SCVMHost -RefreshOutOfBandProperties
