virtual grind thoughts from the virtual world


Using PowerCLI To Answer All CD-ROM Override Questions

I recently ran in to a scenario where multiple cd-rom drives were disconnected from 100's of virtual machines and there were questions generated for each. In order to quickly answer and clear the questions, you can simply use this one liner after connecting to vCenter (Connect-VIServer):

Get-VM | Get-VMQuestion | Set-VMQuestion -Option "Yes" -Confirm:$false

Note than the "-Confirm:$false" will not prompt you as the script runs, taking care of each question automatically. If you would rather see each confirmation, you can remove the the Confirm switch.
