    PowerCLI - Copy-HardDisk

    jdefilippis Lurker



      Looking for some help with copying a vmdk from vm to vm.  I've tried using powercli and hit a wall with the Copy-HardDisk command. 


      Esxi - 6.5


      Get-HardDisk -VM VM1 |

      where{$_.FileName -match "VM1/VM1_2"} |

      Copy-HardDisk -DestinationPath "[LUN1] VM2/VM1_2.vmdk" -DestinationStorageFormat Thin




      Get-HardDisk : The term 'Get-HardDisk' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file,

      or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is

      correct and try again.

      + Get-HardDisk -VM VM1 |
