Get-PnpDevice -Class Ports -FriendlyName MOXA* | Select-Object -Property FriendlyName May 23, 2018 at 6:12 pm #101076 JonParticipant get-pnpdevice is getting it's information from TypeName: Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/cimv2/Win32_PnPEntity So you could use cim or wmi cmdlets to call win32_pnpentity May 23, 2018 at 7:14 pm #101079 PjParticipant With that information I have arrived at the following for a replacement string. Thanks for the fast answer $filter = 'Moxa UPort Com Port' $MoxaPorts = Get-WmiObject win32_pnpentity -Filter "name LIKE '%$filter%'" | Select-Object Name return $MoxaPorts May 24, 2018 at 12:10 am #101088 jsParticipant I was going to suggest this, but other properties get returned anyway, lol. get-wmiobject -query "select name from win32_pnpentity where name like '%$filter%'" Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
