Add-LabIsoImageDefinition

SYNOPSIS

Adds a definition of an ISO file using a logical name and a path of the ISO file

SYNTAX

Add-LabIsoImageDefinition [[-Name] <String>] [[-Path] <String>] [-IsOperatingSystem] [-NoDisplay]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

When AutomatedLab is to install roles like SQL Server, Exchange, Visual Studio, Office etc, it must know where to find the ISO file for these products. AutomatedLab does this by associating a logical name with a definition of an ISO file by path. This way, when AutomatedLab needs an ISO file, it looks for this "mapping".

All operating system ISO files are detected automatically UNLESS the ISO files are not placed within the LabSources folder structure. If so, you must specify manually using Add-LabIsoImageDefinition, where the ISO file is located.

EXAMPLES

Example 1

Add-LabIsoImageDefinition -Path E:\ISOs\MyWin2016ServerFile.iso

Adds a definition of ISO file to be used when installing Server 2016.

Example 2

Adds a definition of ISO file to be used when installing SQL Server 2014.
