A friend complained that it can’t get enough information about VM in PowerShell. He checked all the documentation, go to Google and Bing with no luck. Going to TechNet to get information about a PowerShell Cmdlet is OK, but there is a better way to do that. Get-member, return all the properties and method of an object. So you do not have to memorize all the Technet and Msdn sites. So if you want know all the properties associated with get-vm You can run this

Get-vm | get-member –membertype properties

((/public/powershell/.getVM_m.jpg

It works for all object

Get-vmswitch | get-member –membertype properties

And you will more detail than you can have a Google search page and maybe find true Gems. net-adapter.png
