Detailed Description

The Get-BrokerHypervisorConnection cmdlet gets hypervisor connections matching the specified criteria. If no parameters are specified this cmdlet enumerates all hypervisor connections.

Brokerhypervisorconnection Object

The BrokerHypervisorConnection represents hypervisor connection object. It contains the following properties:

  • Capabilities (System.String[]) The set of capabilities as reported by the hypervisor.

  • ExplicitPreferredController (System.Boolean?) Whether the PreferredController property was explicity set through the SDK or automatically chosen.

  • ExtraSpinUpTimeSecs (System.Int32?) The extra time a VM is allowed to start before it is marked as failed on session launch

  • HypHypervisorConnectionUid (System.Guid) The Guid that identifies the hypervisor connection.

  • IsReady (System.Boolean) Indicates that the connection is ready to be used in the configuration of managed machines.

  • MachineCount (System.Int32) Count of machines associated with this hypervisor connection.

  • MaxAbsoluteActiveActions (System.Int32?) Maximum number of active power actions allowed at any one time (defined in the metadata named 'Citrix_Broker_MaxAbsoluteActiveActions' on the hypervisor connection in the Citrix Hosting Service).

  • MaxAbsoluteNewActionsPerMinute (System.Int32?) Maximum number of new actions that can be fired off to the hypervisor in any one minute (defined in the metadata named 'Citrix_Broker_MaxAbsoluteNewActionsPerMinute' on the hypervisor connection in the Citrix Hosting Service).

  • MaxAbsolutePvdPowerActions (System.Int32?) Maximum number of active PvD power actions allowed at any one time (defined in the metadata named 'Citrix_Broker_MaxAbsolutePvdPowerActions' on the hypervisor connection in the Citrix Hosting Service).

  • MaxPercentageActiveActions (System.Int32?) Maximum percentage of machines on the connection that can have active power actions at any one time (defined in the metadata named 'Citrix_Broker_MaxPowerActionsPercentageOfDesktops' on the hypervisor connection in the Citrix Hosting Service).

  • MaxPvdPowerActionsPercentageOfDesktops (System.Int32?) Maximum percentage of machines on the connection that can be in personal VDisk image preparation mode at any one time (defined in the metadata named 'Citrix_Broker_MaxPvdPowerActionsPercentageOfDesktops' on the hypervisor connection in the Citrix Hosting Service).

  • MetadataMap (System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary<string, string>) Collection of all the metadata associated to the hypervisor connection.

  • Name (System.String) The display name of the hypervisor connection.

  • PreferredController (System.String) The name of the controller which is preferred to be used, when available, to perform all communication to the hypervisor. The name is in DOMAIN\machine form. A preferred controller may have been automatically chosen when the hypervisor connection was created.

  • State (Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.HypervisorConnectionState) The state of the hypervisor connection.

  • Uid (System.Int32) Unique internal identifier of hypervisor connection.

Parameters

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
Uid Gets the hypervisor connection with the specified internal id. true false
Name Gets hypervisor connections with the specified name. false false
ExplicitPreferredController Gets hypervisor connections based on whether their preferred controller was explicitly specified or not false false
ExtraSpinUpTimeSecs Gets the extra time a VM is allowed to start before it is marked as failed on session launch false false
HypHypervisorConnectionUid Gets hypervisor connections with the specified Guid. false false
IsReady Gets hypervisor connections with the specified value of the IsReady flag. false false
MachineCount Gets hypervisor connections with the specified machine count. false false
MaxAbsoluteActiveActions Gets hypervisor connections with the specified MaxAbsoluteActiveActions value. false false
MaxAbsoluteNewActionsPerMinute Gets hypervisor connections with the specified MaxAbsoluteNewActionsPerMinute value. false false
MaxAbsolutePvdPowerActions Gets hypervisor connections with the specified MaxAbsolutePvdPowerActions value. false false
MaxPercentageActiveActions Gets hypervisor connections with the specified MaxPercentageActiveActions value. false false
MaxPvdPowerActionsPercentageOfDesktops Gets hypervisor connections with the specified MaxPvdPowerActionsPercentageOfDesktops value. false false
Metadata Gets records with matching metadata entries.
The value being compared with is a concatenation of the key name, a colon, and the value. For example: -Metadata "abc:x*" matches records with a metadata entry having a key name of "abc" and a value starting with the letter "x".
false false
PreferredController Gets hypervisor connections with the specified preferred controller. Specify the SAM name of the controller. false false
State Gets hypervisor connections with the specified connection state. Values can be can be:
o Unavailable - The broker is unable to contact the hypervisor.
o InMaintenanceMode - The hosting server is in maintenance mode.
o On - The broker is in contact with the hypervisor.
false false
ReturnTotalRecordCount When specified, this causes the cmdlet to output an error record containing the number of records available. This error record is additional information and does not affect the objects written to the output pipeline. See about_Broker_Filtering for details. false false False
MaxRecordCount Specifies the maximum number of records to return. false false 250
Skip Skips the specified number of records before returning results. Also reduces the count returned by -ReturnTotalRecordCount. false false 0
SortBy Sorts the results by the specified list of properties. The list is a set of property names separated by commas, semi-colons, or spaces. Optionally, prefix each name with a + or - to indicate ascending or descending order. Ascending order is assumed if no prefix is present. false false The default sort order is by name or unique identifier.
Filter Gets records that match a PowerShell style filter expression. See about_Broker_Filtering for details. false false
Property Specifies the properties to be returned. This is similar to piping the output of the command through Select-Object, but the properties are filtered more efficiently at the server. false false
AdminAddress Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller that the PowerShell snapin will connect to. This can be provided as a host name or an IP address. false false Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value will become the default.
BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false

Input Type

None
