V Tpm Category

Cmdlets are usually implemented around resource operations. The four basic operations are CREATE, READ, UPDATE and DELETE. This set of operations is known as CRUD. Most of the cmdlets support CRUD which are respectively cmdlets that start with the New/Get/Set/Remove cmdlet verbs but they also may have additional operations

Step 1: Retrieve a object by running a Get command

You can READ objects by using Get-VTpm cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves the vTPM device of the virtual machine named "MyVM".

$vm = Get-VM "MyVM" Get-VTpm -VM $vm

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

You can CREATE objects by using New-VTpm cmdlet. See example below:

# Adds a new vTPM device to the virtual machine named "MyVM".

Get-VM MyVM | New-VTpm
You can UPDATE objects by using Set-VTpm cmdlet. See example below:

# Changes the certificate of the vTPM device in a virtual machine named 'MyVM' with the new certificate in the 'C:\MyCertFile.cert' file.

Get-VTpm -VM 'MyVM' | Set-VTpm -CertFilePath 'C:\MyCertFile.cert'
You can REMOVE objects by using Remove-VTpm cmdlet. See example below:

# Removes the vTPM device from the virtual machine named 'MyVM'.

$myVm = Get-VM MyVM Get-VTpm -VM $myVm | Remove-VTpm
