Examples

Example 1

This example configures a failover IPv4 address for virtual network adapter NetworkAdapter01 on virtual machine VM01.


PS C:\> Get-VMNetworkAdapter VM01 NetworkAdapter01 | Set-VMNetworkAdapterFailoverConfiguration –IPv4Address 10.100.1.100 –IPv4SubnetMask 255.255.255.0

Example 2

This example clears the current failover IPv4 settings on virtual network adapter NetworkAdapter01 for virtual machine VM01.


PS C:\> Get-VMNetworkAdapter VM01 NetworkAdapter01 | Set-VMNetworkAdapterFailoverConfiguration –ClearFailoverIPv4Settings

Example 3

This example configures an IPv6 address and a prefix length of 12 for a virtual network adapter NetworkAdapter01 for virtual machine VM01.


PS C:\> Get-VMNetworkAdapter VM01 NetworkAdapter01 | Set-VMNetworkAdapterFailoverConfiguration –Ipv6Address aaaa:aaaa:aaaa:aaaa:aaaa:aaaa:aaa:aaaa –Ipv6SubnetPrefixLength 12

Example 4

This example clears the current failover IPv6 settings on a virtual network adapter NetworkAdapter01 for virtual machine VM01.


PS C:\> Get-VMNetworkAdapter VM01 NetworkAdapter01 | Set-VMNetworkAdapterFailoverConfiguration –ClearFailoverIPv6Settings
