PowerTip: Use PowerShell to get information about TPM

Here’s a tip from my colleague Ed Wilson (the Microsoft Scripting Guy) about how to use Windows PowerShell to get status information about the Trusted Platform Module (TPM).

Question: You want to find out if Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is present, ready and enabled. How can you do this with a single command using Windows PowerShell?

Answer: Open Windows PowerShell with admin rights, and use the Get_TPM cmdlet. This command appears here:

PS C:\> Get-TPM

  1. How to verify less than 200 machines on the network are either upgradable to TPM 2.0 or not using PS??
    If they are not I can replace and start fresh with TPM 2.0.
