powershell switch statement

Hi Guys,

I am constructing a switch argument in powershell and how do I get the "lndapp01" on the name variable?


switch ($vm)
    {
        "LNDAPP01" {

$name=
$computerName = Get-WmiObject Win32_ComputerSystem
$computername.rename("$name")

}

thank you in advance,

The usual "$_":
switch ($vm) { 
	"LNDAPP01" {
		$name = $_
		$computerName = Get-WmiObject Win32_ComputerSystem 
		$computername.rename($name)
	}
}
