What file(s) does get-VIevent parse and what is their location?

 

As I understand it the events get rolled up into zip files and I want to be able to get a LOT of events (when powered off) on over 100 vm’s. The get-VIEvent will only parse the initial file if I understand correctly, so if I know where the files are and their names I can possibly work around this limitation.

Not sure what you are looking for, but if you are looking for events for a particular time period specifying start and end time in command parameter would be a start.

Also you can filter by event type by using -Types parameter.
