Discovering the netboot GUID of virtual machines

So tonight I was playing around with deployment at home. Having tried both System Center Essentials and System Center Configuration Manager, it was time for another deployment solution. Since my company has a sister company specializing in system management software, I decided to give them a try. After installing I needed to find the netboot GUID since I didn’t really like using the mac address. So how do I get the netboot GUID of my Hyper-V virtual machines? Well powershell of course.

The powershell snippet:


[table “” not found /]

So now I can continue testing Specops Deploy / OS. Also I wrote a function that does this, see my blog about Powershell function for getting the netboot GUID.
