PowerCLI: Search VM By MAC Address

PowerCLI: Search VM By MAC Address

The below snippet is pretty useful for when you have a mac address conflict between your VM’s. The VMware alarm/flag does not tell you the VM that it MAC conflicts with so time to open up PowerCLI and run the below example

 

Get-VM | Get-NetworkAdapter | Where {$_.MacAddress -eq “00:59:59:c9:da:9a”} | select @{Name="VM";Expression={$_.Parent}},MacAddress | ft -AutoSize
