Hi,

I'd like to know if it is possible to modify this script to include the adapter type in the next column ?

Thanks,

JJ

Hello there,

It depends a little on what you'd like to see exactly. But you can add the Adapter Type as a property to the output:

Get-VM | Select-Object Name, 
  @{n='AdapterType';e={
    $_ | Get-NetworkAdapter | Where-Object { $_.Type -ne "vmxnet3" } | Select-Object -Expand Type }}

Open in new window


Don't forget you can use Export-CSV if you want that pumping out to a file.
