New script – Import Machine Objects from Hyper-V into ConfigMgr

Quick Post, been doing a lot of ConfigMgr OSD Deployments lately, with a lot of Hyper-V test hosts.

For my test hosts, I’ve been creating Machine Objects in ConfigMgr by manually entering them in one at a time (yuck). So I was wondering what the process is for entering in Machine Objects via PowerShell.

Additionally, I was curious how to inject variables into the Machine Object that could be used later on in the deployment Process, in this case a Role.

Up next, how to extract this information from VMWare <meh>.

<#
.SYNOPSIS
Generate a computer list from Hyper-V ready to import into Configuration Manager
.DESCRIPTION
Given a Hyper-V server and a set of Hyper-V Virtual Machines, this script will
extract out the necessary information required to create the associated Machine Object in
Configuration Manager.
.PARAMETER Path
Name of the CSV file to be created
.PARAMETER SourceComputer
Optional parameter used to pre-populate the SourceComputer Field in the CSV output.
.PARAMETER Role
Optional Paramater used to pre-populate the
.NOTES
If you modify this file in Excel, you should save the file in "CSV (MS-DOS) *.csv" format to ensure there are no extra double-quotes present.
.EXAMPLE
.\Get-VMListFOrCM.ps1 | ft
Get all virtual machines and display in a table.
.EXAMPLE
.\Get-VMListFOrCM.ps1 | convertto-csv -NoTypeInformation | % { $_.replace('"','') }
Find all Virtual Machines and convert to a CSV format without any doublequotes.
.EXAMPLE
.\Get-VMListFOrCM.ps1 -Verbose -name hyd-cli* -Role ROLE_Test1 -path .\test.csv
Find all Virtual Machines that start with the name HYD-CLI, and export to .\test.csv
