Get-CMSite – List all Primary and Secondary Sites

After launching your ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 PowerShell Command Prompt, use the Get-CMSite cmdlet to list all primary and secondary sites in a hierarchy. Since this is a GET verb, everything we do here is query-only, so there is no damage by running any of the examples below.

get-cmsite – default arguments, will list all sites as follows:


Command Action
get-cmsite | out-gridview Lists all sites to a gridview
get-cmsite | where-object {$_.type -eq 4} List the CAS
get-cmsite | where-object {$_.type -eq 2} List all Primary Sites
get-cmsite | where-object {$_.type -eq 1} List all Secondary Sites
get-cmsite | select-object ServerName, Version | sort-object Servername Lists all sites and version, sorted by servername
get-cmsite | where-object {$_.ReportingSiteCode -eq “AMR” -and $_.Type -eq 1} List all secondary sites assigned to AMR
get-cmsite | select-object ServerName, Version | sort-object Servername | export-csv c:\temp\MySiteServers.csv -notypeinformation Same as previous, but exports to CSV file
get-cmsite | foreach {Get-WmiObject -class Win32_OperatingSystem -computer $_.ServerName | Select-Object __SERVER,@{label=’LastRestart’;expression={$_.ConvertToDateTime($_.LastBootUpTime)}}} Display last bootup time for each server-performs a WQL query on win32_OperatingSystem, so you must have proper rights to remotely connect to each system.

Happy Scripting!
