    How do i get MAC address and IP in a format i can use in a script

    dmacph Lurker



      I want to collect the IP and MAC from a specific MV for use elsewhere.


      The 2 queries i have are


      Get-VM $VMname | Get-NetworkAdapter | select MacAddress


      Get-VM $VMname | Select @{N=”IP Address”;E={@($_.guest.IPAddress[0])}}


      They both return a header and the value


      IP Address



      I just want the value that i can stick in a variable for use elsewhere - like so


      $VMmac = (Get-VM $VMname | Get-NetworkAdapter | select MacAddress )


      What simple thing am i missing?


      Assistance much appreciated
