Gets physical machine configuration objects from the VMM database.


The Get-SCComputerConfiguration cmdlet gets one or more computer configuration objects from the System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) database that are associated with one or more physical computers. Information about a computer's hardware, physical disks, and operating system is stored in the machine configuration object. 

A physical machine configuration is used by the New-SCP2V cmdlet when it converts a physical machine to a virtual machine. To perform this conversion, you use a physical computer as a model from which to create an identical, or nearly identical, virtual machine that has the same identity (ComputerName.DomainName) as the physical machine.
