powercli - get-snapshot, get-vmname get-hostname

Hi guys,

I have this powercli script:

Get-VM | Get-Snapshot | Where {$_.Created -lt (Get-Date).AddDays(-14)} | Select-Object VM, Name, Created, SizeMB

I also need the host name, normally this is achieved by get-vm | get-hostname

I also need the datacentre name it is ok,

how can I combine these codes.

thank you in advance.

Well, the easy way would be to use variables, and then populate an array variable.


$report = @()

$vms = Get-VM

ForEach ($vm in $vms) {
     $snapshots = Get-SnapShot -VM $vm
     ForEach ($snapshot in $snapshots) {
          if ($snapshot.created -lt (Get-Date).AddDays(-14)) {
               $row = "" | Select-Object VM, SnapshotName, Created, SizeMB, HostName, DataCenter
               $row.VM = $vm.name
               $row.SnapshotName = $snapshot.name
               $row.created = $snapshot.created
               $row.SizeMB = $snapshot.sizemb
               $row.HostName = get-vmhost -vm $vm
               $row.DataCenter = get-datacenter -vm $vm
               $report += $row
          }
     }
}


Then you can do what you want with the $report array - display on the screen, write to CSV, or whatever.  The Get-VMHost line is a bit slow, I'll grant you.

Are you saying you want an array variable to return the hostname, snapshot, and datacenter?

I d this code to give me the hostname and the datacentre also, I tried this but it don't work:

Get-VM | Get-Snapshot | Where {$_.Created -lt (Get-Date).AddDays(-14)} | Select VM,Name,@{N="SizeGB";E={@([math]::Round($_.SizeGB))}},Created, @{N="VMHost";E={Get-vm $_ | get-vmhost | select name}}
