Detailed Description

The Set-SCCustomResource cmdlet sets the properties of a custom resource. A custom resource is a folder-based library object in System Center 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.

Examples

1: Change the description and release of a custom resource.

The first command gets the custom resource object named Folder.CR on LibraryServer01 from the VMM library on VMMServer01 and then stores the object in the $CR variable.

The second command changes the values for the Release and Description properties of the custom resource object stored in $CR,.


PS C:\> $CR = Get-SCCustomResource -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -eq "Folder.CR" -and $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" }PS C:\> Set-SCCustomResource -CustomResource $CR -Release "v1.1" -Description "My LOB Application version 1.1 Install Package"
