Detailed Description

The Set-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter cmdlet changes one or more properties of a virtual network adapter associated with a virtual machine, virtual machine template, or hardware profile used to create virtual machines in a System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) environment.

Properties you can change include the following:

- Connect a virtual network adapter to a virtual network.

- Disconnect a virtual network adapter from a virtual network.

- Specify a network location and network tag on a virtual network adapter.

- Specify a MAC address on the virtual network adapter.

- Enable the use of a virtual local area network (VLAN) and specify a

VLAN ID (numerical identifier) for that VLAN on the virtual network

adapter.

Enables, when set to $True, virtual machine network optimization. This feature improves network performance for virtual machines with network adapters that support virtual machine queue (VMQ) or TCP Chimney Offload. VMQ enables creating a unique network queue for each virtual network adapter. TCP Chimney Offload enables network traffic processing to be offloaded from the networking stack.

VMM uses a NeworkTag (if one exists) when it evaluates hosts as possible candidates on which to deploy a virtual machine. If the host does not include virtual machines on the network with the same NetworkTag as the virtual machine to be placed, the host receives zero stars in the placement process.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • VirtualNetworkAdapter

Notes

  • Requires a VMM virtual network adapter object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter cmdlet.

Examples

1: Connect a virtual network adapter to a virtual network.

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM01 and stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command gets all virtual network adapter objects on VM01, selects the adapter object with the physical (MAC) address of 00:16:D3:CC:00:1B, and then stores the object in the $Adapter variable.

The last command connects the virtual network adapter stored in $Adapter to the virtual network named ExternalVirtualNetwork01 on the host that contains VM01.


PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM01"PS C:\> $Adapter = Get-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter -VM $VM | where { $_.PhysicalAddress -eq "00:16:D3:CC:00:1B" }PS C:\> Set-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter -VirtualNetworkAdapter $Adapter -VirtualNetwork "ExternalVirtualNetwork01"

2: Specify a static MAC address for a virtual network adapter.

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM02 and stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command gets all virtual network adapter objects on VM02, selects the virtual network adapter with the specified ID, and then stores the object in the $Adapter variable. This example assumes that this adapter currently has a dynamic MAC address.

The last command specifies that the virtual network adapter stored in $Adapter use the static MAC address 00:16:D3:CC:00:1C.


PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM02"PS C:\> $Adapter = Get-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter -VM $VM | where { $_.ID -eq "5c0ee80a-731f-41c8-92f0-85a1619f9a1b" }PS C:\> Set-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter -VirtualNetworkAdapter $Adapter -PhysicalAddressType "Static" -PhysicalAddress "00:16:D3:CC:00:1C"

3: Specify a static MAC address and assign it to an existing virtual network adapter.

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM03 and stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command gets the virtual network adapter object on VM03 by ID, specifies that the adapter uses a static MAC address type, and assigns it a MACAddress.


PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM03"PS C:\> Set-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter -VirtualNetworkAdapter (Get-VirtualNetworkAdapter -VM $VM | where { $_.ID -eq "95e9cfda-861c-44a3-b2ba-2f796dfe691c"}) -MACAddressType "Static" -MACAddress "00-00-00-00-00-00"

4. Disconnect the specified virtual network adapter from the virtal network.

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM04 and stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command gets all virtual network adapter objects on VM04 and stores the adapter objects in $Adapters. This example assumes that VM04 has at least 2 virtual network adapters.

The last command uses the NoConnection parameter to disconnect the second virtual network adapter (Adapters[1]) from any virtual network that it is connected to.


PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM04"PS C:\> $Adapters = Get-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter -VM $VMPS C:\> Set-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter -VirtualNetworkAdapter $Adapters[1] -NoConnection

5: Specify a VMware port group for an existing virtual machine.

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM05 and stores the object in the $VM variable.



The second command stores the first [0] virtual network adapter on VM05 in the $Adapter variable.



The last command sets the virtual network adapter for the adapter stored in $Adapter to "VM Network", which is the name of the VMware port group that you want this adapter to connect to.


PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM05"PS C:\> $Adapter = $VM.VirtualNetworkAdapters[0]PS C:\> Set-SCVirtualNetworkAdapter -VirtualNetworkAdapter $Adapter -VMwarePortGroup "VM Network"
