Get-VMHostHardware

This cmdlet retrieves hardware and firmware information for the hosts specified by the VMHost parameter. To specify a server different from the default one, use the Server parameter.

Parameters

Required Parameter Name Type Position Features Description
optional
Server
VIServer[] named This parameter is required when you specify the host by name. In this case, the host with the specified name is searched on the specified servers and hardware information is retrieved from it. If a VMHost object is passed to the VMHost parameter, the Server parameter is not used.
optional
SkipAllSslCertificateChecks
SwitchParameter named Indicates that all checks for SSL server certificates are skipped.
optional
SkipCACheck
SwitchParameter named Indicates that when connecting through HTTPS, the client does not validate that the server certificate is signed by a trusted certification authority (CA).
optional
SkipCNCheck
SwitchParameter named Indicates that the certificate common name (CN) of the server does not need to match the hostname of the server.
optional
SkipRevocationCheck
SwitchParameter named Indicates that the revocation check for server certificates is skipped.
optional
VMHost
VMHost[] named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies the hosts for which you want to retrieve hardware information. If not specified, the cmdlet retrieves hardware information for all hosts on all default connections.
    optional
    WaitForAllData
    SwitchParameter named If specified, forces all data for each result object to be retrieved before that object is returned. If this parameter is not specified, retrieval of some of the data in the output objects might be postponed to an arbitrary point in time between the cmdlet call and the first time the data is accessed through the corresponding property. As a result, not specifying this parameter makes the cmdlet return data faster, but different portions of the data in result objects might come from different points in time.
