<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.

  • None by default. If –PassThru is specified, then a Microsoft.HyperV.PowerShell.VMInternalNetworkAdapter is passed through to the pipeline if -ManagementOS is also specified, otherwise Microsoft.HyperV.PowerShell.VMNetworkAdapter.


Examples

Example 1

This example enables DHCP Guard on all the virtual network adapters of virtual machine Redmond. When DHCP Guard enabled, if virtual machine Redmond replies to requests from DHCP clients, these replies are dropped.


PS C:\> Set-VMNetworkAdapter -VMName Redmond -DhcpGuard On

Example 2

This example enables port mirroring for all virtual network adapters on virtual machine Kirkland. When port mirroring is enabled, every packet sent or received by this virtual machine is copied and sent to a monitoring virtual machine.


PS C:\> Set-VMNetworkAdapter -VMName Kirkland –PortMirroring Source

Example 3

This example configures the virtual network adapter named PM_Dest as the destination for port mirroring, which configures the virtual machine named Bellevue to monitor network traffic. That is, a copy of every packet sent or received by a monitored virtual machine connected to the same virtual switch is sent to virtual machine Bellevue through virtual network adapter PM_Dest.


PS C:\> Set-VMNetworkAdapter -VMName Bellevue –Name PM_Dest –PortMirroring Destination

Example 4

This example enables VMQ and sets a weight of 100 on every virtual network adapter on the local host.


PS C:\> Get-VMNetworkAdapter –All | Set-VMNetworkAdapter –VmqWeight 100

Example 5

This example configures NIC Teaming for all virtual network adapters of the virtual machine named Redmond.


PS C:\> Get-VM Redmond | Set-VMNetworkAdapter –AllowTeaming On

Example 6

This example sets the same minimum bandwidth weight for all virtual network adapters of three virtual machines: Redmond, Kirkland, and Bellevue. This configuration shares bandwidth equally among all of the virtual network adapters of these virtual machines.


PS C:\> Get-VMNetworkAdapter -VMName Redmond,Kirkland,Bellevue | Set-VMNetworkAdapter -MinimumBandwidthWeight 1
