Detailed Description

Finds power actions matching the specified search criteria from the queue of all known power actions. These power actions can be waiting to be dealt with or can be part way through being processed by the relevant hypervisor, or they can be recently completed actions. Completed actions are removed from the queue after a configured period, the default being one hour.

If no search criteria are specified all actions in the queue are obtained.

A Hosting Power Action record defines the action that is to be performed or has been performed, the machine that the action is to be applied to, the priority of the action in relation to other actions in the queue, times for points in the life of the action, and any results if the action has completed.

For a detailed description of the queuing mechanism, see 'help about_Broker_PowerManagement'.

Brokerhostingpoweraction Object

The BrokerHostingPowerAction object represents an instance of a power action. It contains the following properties:

  • Action (Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.PowerManagementAction) The power action to be performed. Possible values are: TurnOn, TurnOff, Shutdown, Reset, Restart, Suspend, Resume.

  • ActionCompletionTime (System.DateTime?) The time when the power action was completed by the hypervisor connection.

  • ActionStartTime (System.DateTime?) The time when the power action was started to be processed by the hypervisor.

  • ActualPriority (System.Int32) The current priority of the operation after any priority boosting.

  • BasePriority (System.Int32) The starting priority of the operation.

  • DNSName (System.String) The fully qualified DNS name of the machine that the power action applies to.

  • FailureReason (System.String) For failed, lost, canceled or deleted actions, an indication of why the action did not complete.

  • HostedMachineId (System.String) The hypervisor's ID for the machine that the power action applies to.

  • HostedMachineName (System.String) The hypervisor's name for the machine that the power action applies to.

  • HypervisorConnectionUid (System.Int32) The unique identifier of the hypervisor connection that is associated with the target machine.

  • HypHypervisorConnectionUid (System.Guid) The UUID of the hypervisor connection that the machine‚Äôs hosting server is accessed through. This is the identifier used by the Host and Provisioning services.

  • MachineName (System.String) The name of the machine that the power action applies to, in the form domain\machine.

  • MetadataMap (System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary<string, string>) Metadata for this power action.

  • Origin (Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.PowerActionPriority) The origin of the power action.

  • RequestTime (System.DateTime) The timestamp of when the action was created and placed in the queue.

  • Sid (System.String) The SID of the machine to which the power action applies.

  • State (Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.PowerActionState) The current state of this power action. Possible values are: Pending, Started, Completed, Failed, Canceled, Deleted, Lost.

  • Uid (System.Int64) The unique identifier of the power action.

Parameters

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
Uid Gets only the single action record whose ID matches the specified value. true false
MachineName Gets only the records for actions that are for machines whose name (of the form domain\machine) matches the specified string. false false
Action Gets only action records with the specified action type.
Valid values are TurnOn, TurnOff, ShutDown, Reset, Restart, Suspend and Resume.
false false
ActionCompletionTime Gets only action records reported as having completed successfully at the specified time. This is useful with advanced filtering; for more information, see about_Broker_Filtering. false false
ActionStartTime Gets only action records reported as starting to be processed by the relevant hypervisor at the specified time. This is useful with advanced filtering; for more information, see about_Broker_Filtering. false false
ActualPriority Gets only the records for actions whose current active priority matches the specified value. false false
BasePriority Gets only the records for actions whose original priority matches the specified value. false false
DNSName Gets only the records for actions that are for machines whose DNS name matches the specified string. false false
FailureReason Gets only actions that did not complete successfully and whose failure reason value matches the specified string. false false
HostedMachineId Gets only actions for machines whose hosting ID (the ID used by the hypervisor) matches the specified string. false false
HostedMachineName Gets only actions for machines whose hosting name (the name used by the hypervisor) matches the specified string. false false
HypervisorConnectionName Gets only the records for actions for machines hosted via a hypervisor connection whose name matches the specified string. false false
HypervisorConnectionUid Gets only the records for actions for machines hosted via a hypervisor connection whose UID matches the specified value. false false
HypHypervisorConnectionUid Gets only the records for actions for machines hosted via a hypervisor connection whose UUID matches the specified 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
Origin Gets only actions whose origin matches the specified string.
Valid values are Reset, Schedule, Launch, Admin, Untaint, Policy and IdlePool.
false false
RequestTime Gets only the records for actions created and added to the queue at the specified time. This is useful with advanced filtering; for more information, see about_Broker_Filtering. false false
Sid Gets only actions for machines whose SIDs match the specified string. false false
State Gets only the records for actions with the specified current state.
Valid values are Pending, Started, Completed, Failed, Canceled, Deleted and Lost.
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
FilterScope Gets only results allowed by the specified scope id. 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
TraceParent Specifies the trace parent assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false
TraceState Specifies the trace state assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false
VirtualSiteId Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. false false

Input Type

None

You cannot pipe input into this cmdlet.
