Working with Variables

I am working on extracting a variable with powershell for a Citrix farm.

I use:

$farmname = Get-XAFarm | Select-Object farmname

this puts the below into the variable


I just need to pull the farm name itself or trim the rest off. So i don't need:


Is there a way to only get what I need?

RE: Working with Variables

What do you get with:

CODE -->

$farmname = Get-XAFarm

Show us the contents of the function Get-XAFarm.

RE: Working with Variables

I'm sure what you're asking for. Get-XAFarm is a cmdlet from the Citrix XenApp snapin

However, this is what I get when I run the command:

CODE -->

## Add Citrix Snapin
Add-PSSnapin Citrix.XenApp.Commands

## Get the farm object
PS C:\> $farm = Get-XAFarm
PS C:\> $farm
FarmName : <My Farm Name> ServerVersion : 6.5.0 AdministratorType : Full MachineName : <My Server>
## Get the farm name as a string PS C:\> $farmname = $farm.farmname PS C:\> $farmname
<My Farm Name>

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
