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.
|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.|
You can pipe an object containing parameters called 'VMId' and 'ProvisioningSchemeName' to Lock-ProvVM.
In the case of failure, the following errors can result.
VMDoesNotExist The specified VM cannot be located. VMAlreadyLocked The VM is already unlocked. VMDoesNotExistForProvisioningScheme The specified VM does exist in the hypervisor, but is not part of the specified provisioning scheme. PermissionDenied The user is not authorized to perform this operation ConfigurationLoggingError The operation could not be performed because of a configuration logging error DatabaseError An error occurred in the service while attempting a database operation. DatabaseNotConfigured The operation could not be completed because the database for the service is not configured.

CommunicationError An error occurred while communicating with the service. PermissionDenied The user does not have administrative rights to perform this operation. ExceptionThrown An unexpected error occurred. For more details, see the Windows event logs on the controller being used or Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops logs.
