Gets any Virtual Disks that are recognised by the Machine Creation Service.

Syntax

Get-ProvVirtualDisk [-VirtualDiskId <Guid>] [-StorageId <Guid>] [-HostingUnitUid <Guid>] [-ReturnTotalRecordCount] [-MaxRecordCount <Int32>] [-Skip <Int32>] [-SortBy <String>] [-Filter <String>] [-FilterScope <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-TraceParent <String>] [-TraceState <String>] [-VirtualSiteId <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

Provides the ability to obtain a list of the Virtual Disks that are known to the Machine Creation Service and their locations on the storage.

Parameters

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
VirtualDiskId The identifier for the virtual disk. false true (ByPropertyName)
StorageId The identifier for the storage location on which the virtual disk is located. false false
HostingUnitUid The identifier for the hosting unit containing the virtual disk. false true (ByPropertyName)
ReturnTotalRecordCount See about_Prov_Filtering for details. false false false
MaxRecordCount See about_Prov_Filtering for details. false false false
Skip See about_Prov_Filtering for details. false false 0
SortBy See about_Prov_Filtering for details. false false
Filter See about_Prov_Filtering for details. false false
FilterScope Gets only results allowed by the specified scope id. false false
BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false
TraceParent Specifies the trace parent assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false
TraceState Specifies the trace state assigned for internal diagnostic tracing user false false
VirtualSiteId Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. false false
AdminAddress The address of a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops controller that the PowerShell snap-in connects to. You can provide this as a host name or an IP address. false false localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value becomes the default.

Input Type

System.Guid

You can pipe the hosting unit identifier to Get-ProvVirtualDisk.

Return Values

Citrix.Machinecreation.Sdk.Virtualdisk

The object has the following properties:
AllowAutomaticReplication <bool> A value indicating whether the virtual disk will be replicated automatically to all storage locations defined within the hosting unit. HighPriority <bool> A value indicating whether the virtual disk is high priority. HostingUnitUid <Guid> The unique identifier of the hosting unit. VirtualDiskId <Guid> The unique identifier of the virtual disk. VirtualDiskLocations <Citrix.MachineCreation.Sdk.VirtualDiskLocation> An array of objects, each providing the location of the virtual disk on a storage location of the hosting unit. VirtualDiskType <string> A value indicating the type of the virtual disk (e.g. AppDisk).

Notes

In the case of failure, the following errors can result.
Error Codes ----------- PartialData Only a subset of the available data was returned. CouldNotQueryDatabase The query required to get the database was not defined. PermissionDenied The user does not have administrative rights to perform this operation. ConfigurationLoggingError The operation could not be performed because of a configuration logging error CommunicationError An error occurred while communicating with the service. DatabaseNotConfigured The operation could not be completed because the database for the service is not configured.
