SYNOPSIS

Gets LCM settings and states for the node.

SYNTAX

Get-DscLocalConfigurationManager [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-DscLocalConfigurationManager cmdlet gets Local Configuration Manager (LCM) settings, or meta-configuration, and the states of LCM for the node. Specify computers by using Common Information Model (CIM) sessions. If you do not specify a target computer, the cmdlet gets the configuration settings from the local computer.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get LCM settings for the local computer

PS C:\> Get-DscLocalConfigurationManager

This command gets LCM settings for the local computer.

Example 2: Get LCM settings for a specified computer

PS C:\> $Session = New-CimSession -ComputerName "Server01" -Credential ACCOUNTS\PattiFuller
PS C:\> Get-DscLocalConfigurationManager -CimSession $Session

This example gets LCM settings for a computer specified by a CIM session. The example creates a CIM session for a computer named Server01 for use with the cmdlet. Alternatively, create an array of CIM sessions to apply the cmdlet to multiple specified computers.

The first command creates a CIM session by using the New-CimSession cmdlet, and then stores the CimSession object in the $Session variable. The command prompts you for a password. For more information, type Get-Help New-CimSession.

The second command gets Local Configuration Manager settings for the computers identified by the CimSession objects stored in the $Session variable, in this case, the computer named Server01.
