Get-DeployRuleSet Command | Vmware PowerCLI Reference


Gets the current working rule set or the current active rule set. The active rule set governs how new hosts are to be deployed. The working set can be used to test out changes before making them active. By default, any cmdlets that change the rule set will immediately activate the change. However, you can pass the NoActivate parameter to the cmdlet to delay activation until Switch-ActiveDeployRuleSet is called on the working rule set.
