  • Hello,

    I have an xml file with me and I have to read that file by the PowerShell. Is it possible to read the xml file output by the PowerShell?

  • What have you tried?

    This is not the right place to ask other people to train you in PowerShell basics or write code for you.

  • Are you asking how to load an XML file?  WHat d you mena by reading the "output"?

    To load XML:

    [xml]$xml = Get-Content yourfile.xml

  • Hello,

    I wrote this code:

     $r = Import-Clixml <location with file name and
    extension>

    $r | fl | more

    $r.Report

    $r.Report.Failures
    |fl

    $r.Report.Failures
    |Select
    -Last 1

    $i=0;$r.report.Failures | foreach { $_ | Select-Object @{name="index";expression={$i}},timestamp,failurecode,failuretype,failureside;$i++} | ft

    But it is giving an error.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the reply. "Reading the Output" means, we have a xml file and that file is not a human friendly in the perspective of reading, so I want that command to read the xml file just like the output of a command when we run in PowerShell.

    Regards,

    Shashank

  • Your question is very vague and ambiguous.  XML file can be loaded as I showed you.  CliXML files are very special files that can save PowerShell objects.  The commands are not designed to load (read) general XML files.

    Please do a little research on PowerShell and XML in order to understand why your question is ambiguous and impossible to answer as asked.
