PowerShell is King – Create the “missing” VM on all the lab machines

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on July 9, 2014

Lets assume that you are running a class and suddenly someone raise the hand and say “I’m missing one of the VMs…” That is far from god, but wait a minute, what about PowerShell to the rescue?, of course, so here it is:

Code snip below:


$servers = 1..21 | ForEach-Object {
“VIAMONSTRA{0:D3}” -f $_
}

foreach ($Server in $Servers)
{
Invoke-Command -ComputerName $Server -ScriptBlock {
HostName
$VMName = “FS01”
$VMMemory = 2048MB
$VMDiskSize = 60GB
$VMNetwork = “Internal”
$VMLocation = “C:\VMs”
New-VM -Name $VMName -Generation 2 -MemoryStartupBytes $VMMemory -SwitchName $VMNetwork -Path $VMLocation -NoVHD | Out-Null
New-VHD -Path “$VMLocation\$VMName\Virtual Hard Disks\$VMName-Disk1.vhdx” -SizeBytes $VMDiskSize | Out-Null
Add-VMHardDiskDrive -VMName $VMName -Path “$VMLocation\$VMName\Virtual Hard Disks\$VMName-Disk1.vhdx” | Out-Null
}
}
