Hi Guys,

I am trying to create new vm's using this script and for some reason it does not work

$dsc=Get-Datastore DC1_A_T1_SRM_PL006
$tmp=Get-Template -name *win*2008*r2*ent
$name= "DEV-SQL-DBA-01"

New-VM -Name "$name" -Template "$tmp" -Datastore "$dsc" -Memorygb "8" -NumCPU "4" -Networkname DB_SQL_2264 -Notes "Request 12099 - Adam Hobden " -DiskGB 250,50,100,100

Open in new window


it gives me the error message :


New-VM : Parameter set cannot be resolved using the specified named parameters.
At line:1 char:1
+ New-VM -Name "$name" -Template $tmp -Datastore $dsc -Memorygb 8 -NumCPU 4 -Netwo ...

    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [New-VM], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : AmbiguousParameterSet,VMware.VimAutomation.ViCore.Cmdlets.Commands.NewVM

I think you're mixing parameters that are not allowed.

If you want to use the parameter "-Template" you probably cannot use the parameter "-MemoryGB" ...

Check this by running "Get-Help New-VM"  then check in which of the 4 (I think it's four, it used to be :) ) New-VM sections, the parameter "-Template" can be found and make sure all your other parameters are in there.

You'll probably need to set your memory/cpu parameters after the VM is created.

Try this:   there is no parameter with GB but MB
secondly, diskmb should be a numeric value  you gave array as the value?

There is a parameter "memorygb" in PowerCLI version 5.1, it can be found here for reference: https://www.vmware.com/support/developer/PowerCLI/PowerCLI51/html/New-VM.html
