DESCRIPTION

The Get-PcsvDeviceLog cmdlet gets System Event Log entries from a Physical Computer System View (PCSV) device . This cmdlet returns each entry as an MSFT_PCSVLogRecord object. This cmdlet currently supports devices that use the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) protocol. You can use this cmdlet for both in-band and out-of-band connections. To use this cmdlet with an in-band connection, you must have elevated privileges.

EXAMPLES

The first command uses the Get-Credential cmdlet to create a credential, and then stores it in the $Credential variable. The cmdlet prompts you for a user name and password. For more information, type Get-Help Get-Credential.

The second command gets the System Event Log entries on the PCSV device that has the specified IP address. The command uses the credential stored in $Credential.

The first command uses Get-Credential to create a credential, and then stores it in the $Credential variable.

The second command uses the Get-PcsvDevice cmdlet to get the device that has the specified IP address. That cmdlet uses the credential stored in $Credential. The command passes that device to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The current cmdlet gets the System Event Log entries on that device.

Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Credential

Specifies a PSCredential object based on a user name and password. To obtain a PSCredential object, use the Get-Credential cmdlet. For more information, type Get-Help Get-Credential. For IPMI devices, specify credentials that correspond to a user with Administrator privileges on the device.

Type: PSCredential
Parameter Sets: ByComputerName
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 2
Default value: None

Aliases: MP
Accepted values: WSMan, IPMI

Required: True
Position: 3
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Port

Specifies a port on the remote computer to use for the management connection. If you do not specify a port, the cmdlet uses the following default ports:

  • IPMI and WSMAN over HTTP. Port 623.
  • WSMAN over HTTPS. Port 664.
Type: UInt16
Parameter Sets: ByComputerName
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: 4
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)

-SkipCACheck

Indicates that the client connects by using HTTPS without validating that a trusted certification authority (CA) signed the server certificate. Do not specify this parameter if you specify a value of IPMI for the ManagmentProtocol parameter.

Do not specify this parameter unless you can establish trust in another way, such as if the remote computer is part of a network that is physically secure and isolated, or if the remote computer is a trusted host in a Windows Remote Management (WinRM) configuration.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: ByComputerName
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-SkipCNCheck

Indicates that the certificate common name (CN) of the server does not need to match the host name of the server. Do not specify this parameter if you specify a value of IPMI for the ManagmentProtocol parameter.

Specify this parameter only for managing devices by using WSMAN over HTTPS. Be sure to specify this parameter only for trusted computers.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: ByComputerName
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)

-TargetAddress

Specifies the name or IP address of the remote hardware device.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: ByComputerName
Aliases: CN, ComputerName, IpAddress

Required: True
Position: 1
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-TimeoutSec

Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-UseSSL

Indicates that the server connects to the target computer by using SSL. WSMAN encrypts all content transmitted over the network. Specify this parameter to use the additional protection of HTTPS instead of HTTP. If you specify this parameter and SSL is not available on the connection port, the command fails.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: ByComputerName
Aliases: 

Required: False
