  • UseFullDiskCloneProvisioning <bool> Indicates if the VM was created using the dedicated full disk clone feature.

  • CustomVmData <string> Hypervisor specific custom data packet that has been associated with the virtual machine if any.

  • WorkgroupMachine <bool> Indicates if the VM is joined to a workgroup.

Notes

In the case of failure, the following errors can result.

PartialData Only a subset of the available data was returned.
CouldNotQueryDatabase The query required to get the database was not defined.
