Lock-ProvVM [-VMID] <String[]> -ProvisioningSchemeUid <Guid> [-Tag <String>] [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-TraceParent <String>] [-TraceState <String>] [-VirtualSiteId <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

Provides the ability to 'lock' virtual machine(s) with a tag string. This indicates that the VM is being used, and prevents other commands from removing the VM without unlocking it.

Parameters

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
VMID Array of the virtual machine Ids (hypervisor context). true true (ByPropertyName)
ProvisioningSchemeName The name of the provisioning scheme for which VMs must be locked. true true (ByPropertyName)
ProvisioningSchemeUid The unique identifier of the provisioning scheme for which VMs must be locked. true false
Tag The string to be held against the VM being locked. false false
LoggingId Specifies the identifier of the high-level operation this cmdlet call forms a part of. Citrix Studio and Director typically create high-level operations. PowerShell scripts can also wrap a series of cmdlet calls in a high-level operation by way of the Start-LogHighLevelOperation and Stop-LogHighLevelOperation cmdlets. 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

Citrix.Machinecreation.Sdk.Provisionedvirtualmachine

You can pipe an object containing parameters called 'VMId' and 'ProvisioningSchemeName' to Lock-ProvVM.
