We noticed some errors with VMotion and discovered we have quite a
few hosts with Floppy and/or CD connected to a host or ISO. We would
like to ensure all are connected to the Client Device so we have no
interruption with VMotion.
Does anyone know how to possibly change these setting from the CLI?
this can be easily done via powershell (hence the forum you in)
are you wanting RCLI or powershell?
get-vm | get-floppydrive | set-floppydrive -connected:$false get-vm | get-cddrive | set-cddrive -connected:$false
NoMedia should do it, but you may want to disconnect as well. Take the -whatif off when happy.
Get-VM | Get-CDDrive | Set-CDDrive -Connected:$false -NoMedia -WhatIf
