Last Updated: 3/8/2017

SYNOPSIS

Gets the DVD drives attached to a virtual machine or snapshot.

SYNTAX

VMName (Default)

Get-VMDvdDrive [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ComputerName <String[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential[]>]
 [-VMName] <String[]> [-ControllerLocation <Int32>] [-ControllerNumber <Int32>] [<CommonParameters>]

VMObject

Get-VMDvdDrive [-VM] <VirtualMachine[]> [-ControllerLocation <Int32>] [-ControllerNumber <Int32>]
 [<CommonParameters>]

VMSnapshot

Get-VMDvdDrive [-ControllerLocation <Int32>] [-ControllerNumber <Int32>] [-VMSnapshot] <VMSnapshot>
 [<CommonParameters>]

VMDriveController

Get-VMDvdDrive [-ControllerLocation <Int32>] [-VMDriveController] <VMDriveController[]> [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-VMDvdDrive cmdlet gets the DVD drives attached to a virtual machine or snapshot. This cmdlet has no ControllerType parameter, as the Get-VMHardDiskDrive cmdlet does, because virtual DVD drives can be attached only to the IDE controller.

EXAMPLES

Example 1

PS C:\> Get-VMDvdDrive -VMName Test

Gets the virtual DVD drives from virtual machine Test.

Example 2

PS C:\> Get-VM -Name Test | Get-VMDvdDrive -ControllerNumber 1

Gets the virtual DVD drives from IDE controller 1 of virtual machine Test.

Example 3

PS C:\> Get-VMIdeController -VMName TestVM -ControllerNumber 1 -ComputerName Development | Get-VMDvdDrive

Gets the virtual DVD drives from IDE controller 1 of virtual machine TestVM located on the server Development.

Example 4

PS C:\> Get-VMSnapshot -VMName TestVM -Name 'Before applying updates' | Get-VMDvdDrive

Gets the virtual DVD drives from snapshot Before applying updates of virtual machine TestVM.
