Change CDrom drive letter with PowerShell

Here’s just a little Powershell script to change the CDrom drive letter to another drive letter, most customers use a standardized drive letter for this type of drive.

(gwmi Win32_cdromdrive).drive | %{$a = mountvol $_ /l;mountvol
$_ /d;$a = $a.Trim();mountvol z: $a}

This script looks up the cdrom drive and changes the drive letter to Z:, so just change Z: from the script  into the drive letter of choice and you’re good to go.

In Automation Manager you would configure this Powershell script like this:

I’ve used this script on ESXi guests running Windows 2003, 2008 and 2008 R2. Test this script before using it in production! I found this script on this blog.
