I'd like to change hostname of VM via PowerCLI

VSphere 4/5

I found this :

Get-VM | `
Where-Object { $_.Guest.HostName } | `
ForEach-Object { Set-VM -VM $_ -Name $_.Guest.HostName -Confirm:$false }

http://communities.vmware.com/message/1737030?tstart=0

But I do not properly understand Where-Object and $_.Guest.Hostname properties.

VMTools installed in VM.

Help,  Folks.

Appreciate it.
