Detailed Description

The Set-NetIPv6Protocol cmdlet modifies the global IPv6 protocol configuration for the computer. This includes parameters such as the default hop limit, the neighbor cache limit, and multi-cast configuration.

Parameters

-AddressMaskReply<AddressMaskReply>

Modifies the AddressMaskReply property. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 
-- Enabled: The computer will respond to ICMP Address mask packets.
-- Disabled: The computer will not respond to ICMP Address mask packets.

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-DefaultHopLimit<UInt32>

Modifies the default hop limit. This parameter value sets the default value for the CurrentHopLimit property in NetIPInterface. The CurrentHopLimit is the value that the IP interface writes in the hop limit field in all outbound IPv6 traffic. When forwarding a packet, routers are required to decrease the Hop Limit by 1 and to discard the packet when the Hop Limit is 0.
The default value is 128.

-DhcpMediaSense<DhcpMediaSense>

Modifies the DHCPMediaSense property. This parameter value provides a mechanism for the network adapter to notify the protocol stack of media connect and disconnect events. These events trigger the DHCP client to take some action, such as attempting to renew a DHCP lease or removing routes related to a disconnected network. One application of Media Sense enables the network parameters on the notebook computer of a roaming user to automatically and transparently update without rebooting when the user moves from one location to another. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 
-- Enabled: DhcpMediaSense set to Enabled.
-- Disabled: DhcpMediaSense is set to Disabled.
The default value is Enabled.

Modifies the GroupForwardedFragments property. This parameter value determines whether fragments should be collected into groups before being forwarded. The default value is Disabled. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 
-- Enabled: IPv6 protocol fragments are collected into groups before being forwarded.
-- Disabled: IPv6 protocol fragments are not collected into groups and are forwarded as the fragments are received.

-SourceRoutingBehavior<SourceRoutingBehavior>

Modifies the source routing behavior. This parameter value determines the behavior for source routed packets. Note: The computer allows three possible values. However, per RFC 5095 support for forwarding of source routed IPv6 packets has been removed, and the Forward setting now has the same effect as DontForward. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 
-- DontForward: Source routed packets can be received but not forwarded.
-- Drop: Source routed packets will be dropped.
The default value is DontForward.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

-- Always: The computer will always generate temporary addresses with random numbers.
-- Counter: The computer will generate temporary addresses with the interface identifier. This is typically used for test purposes.
-- Disabled: The computer will not use temporary addresses.
-- Enabled: The computer will use temporary addresses.

<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.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root\StandardCimv2\MSFT_NetIPv6Protocol

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


Outputs

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

  • None

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example enabled the DHCP media sense event log.


PS C:\> Set-NetIPv6Protocol –MediaSenseEventLog Enabled

EXAMPLE 2

This example allows for more neighbors on the subnet, as the default is 256.


PS C:\> Get-NetIPv6Protocol –NeighborCacheLimit 1000
