Updated: September 27, 2012

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager

Restart-SCVMHost

Restarts a specified host managed by VMM.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Restart-SCVMHost [-VMHost] <Host> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-UseOutOfBandChannel] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Restart-SCVMHost cmdlet restarts a specified host managed by System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). Restart-SCVMHost restarts the host by issuing "Power Off" and "Power On" commands.

There are two methods by which you can restart a host: in-band and out-of-band. The default parameter set uses the in-band method. To use the out-of-band method, the host must be configured for out-of-band (OOB) management. For information about configuring the Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) settings for a host, type: "Get-Help Set-SCVMHost -detailed".

For more information about Restart-SCVMHost, type: "Get-Help Restart-SCVMHost -online".
