This is seemingly simple, however I have yet to find success with this. How do I list all of the vm's in within a vApp along with all of the information about these vm's, namely thier IP, Ram, Compute, etc
CIvms inside a CIvApp in terms of vCloud Director or do you mean regular vApps? If the former you can do this:
get-civapp "CIvAppNAME" | get-civm | select Name, MemoryMB, CpuCount, Status | ft -AutoSize
Depending on what networking the VM is connected to, will determine what you use to get the IP address. You can find it in the ExtensionData property. Probably $CIvm.ExtensionData.GetNetworkConnectionSection().NetworkConnection if there is only one nic.
Is this for vCloud Director?
If so then when you installed PowerCLI did you tick the box to install PowerCLI for vCloud Director? If not you will need to run the PowerCLI installer again and make sure you check the box that says "PowerCLI for vCloud Director"
Second the first command errored because you did not have a space between ft and -autosize
Third does get-civapp return anything?
If not try this:
Then try get-civapp.
Thanks for your reply. Yes, this is for vCD. Yes, I had the vCloud installed from when I installed PowerCLI, however I added the snapin to powershell and I am getting better results. When I de 'Get-CIVapp' it returns my list of vApp's, including the vApp in question. However, when I insert that name into your previous command, the return is blank.
Please run the following and paste the results:
get-civapp "TLPro*" | select -ExpandProperty Name
The reason is because of the square brackets in your naming convention. vCloud/PowerCLI does not like them. I would remove them from your naming standard. I have escaped them with a backtick. Run the below, it should work:
get-civapp 'TLPro | EALPro `[copy`]' | get-civm | select Name, MemoryMB, CpuCount, Status | ft -AutoSize
Thanks for the response. That was it! Command works now however, it doesn't display the internal or external ip. Is this possible ?
It depends how is your networking on the vApp setup...If you are natting, using directly org networks etc...Please post a screenshot or you networking of the vapp and the networking of a vm:
Also please run the following and post the results:
$civapp = get-civapp 'TLPro | EALPro `[copy`]'
You could try the following but it will only work if you using NatRouted networks;
$vm = get-civapp $civapp | get-civm | select -First 1
