Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager



    Provides an overview of backward compatibility of the Virtual Machine 
    Manager (VMM) for System Center 2012 cmdlets and parameters with previous 
    versions of VMM.

    All cmdlets in VMM for System Center 2012 have new names. Each cmdlet 
    noun is preceded with an "SC". This includes cmdlets that were in previous 
    versions of VMM. For example, in VMM 2008, you would have used the cmdlet
    Get-VMHost to retrieve a VMM host object. In VMM for System Center 2012, 
    this cmdlet is now named Get-SCVMHost. In addition, several parameters 
    that existed in previous versions of VMM have been renamed.

    To preserve a high level of backward compatibility functionality with
    the new naming convention, aliases have been added so that when you call 
    a cmdlet by its previous name, the new version of the cmdlet runs.
    However, we strongly recommend that you review all cmdlets in order to
    discover any enhanced functionality introduced with expanded parameter

    Some cmdlets and parameters included in previous versions of VMM have 
    been deprecated in VMM for System Center 2012. Using these cmdlets or
    parameters in your scripts will cause an error.
