Detailed Description

The Set-SCPlacementConfiguration cmdlet sets the placement configuration settings for a host group. To update settings for a host group, that host group must not be inheriting its settings from a parent host group.

Parameters

-DVDDriveRequirement

Indicates that the destination host must have the number of physical DVD drives required by a virtual machine for placement. If a specific DVD drive letter has been configured on the virtual machine, the host must have a DVD drive that uses that same drive letter.

Outputs

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

  • PlacementConfiguration

Examples

1: Set the placement settings which must be met by a host group.

The first command gets the host group object named HostGroup01 and stores the object in the $HostGroup variable.

The second command gets the placement configuration object for the host group stored in $HostGroup and stores the object in the $PlacementConfig variable.

The last command updates the settings for the placement configuration stored in $PlacementConfig.


PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup "HostGroup01"PS C:\> $PlacementConfig = Get-SCPlacementConfiguration -VMHostGroup $HostGroupPS C:\> Set-SCPlacementConfiguration -PlacementConfiguration $PlacementConfig -MustMeet -ClusterReserveRequirement -HighAvailabilityRequirement -IPAddressAvailabilityRequirement

2: Reset the placement settings for a host group to inherit from the parent host group.

The first command gets the host group object named HostGroup01 and stores the object in the $HostGroup variable.

The second command gets the placement configuration object for the host group stored in $HostGroup and stores the object in the $PlacementConfig variable.

The last command sets the placement configuration stored in $PlacementConfig to inherit its placement settings from its parent host group.


PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup "HostGroup01"PS C:\> $PlacementConfig = Get-SCPlacementConfiguration -VMHostGroup $HostGroupPS C:\> Set-SCPlacementConfiguration -PlacementConfiguration $PlacementConfig -Inherit $True

3: Turn off placement settings for a host group.

The first command gets the host group object named HostGroup01 and stores the object in the $HostGroup variable.

The second command gets the placement configuration object for the host group stored in $HostGroup and stores the object in the $PlacementConfig variable.

The last command turns off the specified placement settings for the placement configuration stored in $PlacementConfig.


PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup "HostGroup01"PS C:\> $PlacementConfig = Get-SCPlacementConfiguration -VMHostGroup $HostGroupPS C:\> Set-SCPlacementConfiguration -PlacementConfiguration $PlacementConfig -Off -ClusterReserveRequirement -HighAvailabilityRequirement -IPAddressAvailabilityRequirement
