Examples

Example 1: Get all hard disk drives on the specified host

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

The second command gets all hard disk drive objects from the host stored in $VMHost, and then displays information about those objects.


PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Get-SCStorageDisk -VMHost $VMHost

Example 2: Get a specific hard disk drive on the host by name

The first command gets the host object named VMHost02, and then uses the pipeline operator to pass VMHost02 to the Get-SCStorageDisk cmdlet. That cmdlet gets the hard disk drive object named PhysicalDrive0 for the host. The command then stores the hard disk drive object in the $StorageDisk variable.

The second command displays the contents of $StorageDisk.


PS C:\> $StorageDisk = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost02.Contoso.com" | Get-SCStorageDisk -Name "\\.\PhysicalDrive0"
PS C:\> $StorageDisk
