Detailed Description

The Set-NetQosPolicy cmdlet modifies an existing Quality of Service (QoS) policy. Match conditions or actions or general parameters of the policy such as NetworkProfile or Precedence can be changed.

Users cannot change the location of where an existing QoS policy is stored. Changing the PolicyStore parameter value will fail.

If a policy was created to be in ActiveStore and a user attempts to make it persistent, such as storing the policy on the local computer, the user has to create a new policy and place it on the local computer (localhost).

If the PolicyStore parameter is not specified, then the cmdlet will search for and update the policy on the local computer (localhost).

Parameters

-AppPathNameMatchCondition<String>

Specifies the name by which an application is run in Windows Server® 2012, such as application.exe or %ProgramFiles%\application.exe.

<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_NetQosPolicySettingData

    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.
    The MSFT_NetQosPolicySettingData object contains a QoS policy.


Outputs

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

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_NetQosPolicySettingData

    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.
    The MSFT_NetQosPolicySettingData object contains a QoS policy. Only when the PassThru parameter is specified will this cmdlet return the MSFT_NetQosPolicySettingData object.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example updates the QoS policy named SMB Policy so that it only applies to traffic that is outgoing from a domain-joined network adapter.


PS C:\> Set-NetQosPolicy –Name "SMB Policy" -NetworkProfile Domain

EXAMPLE 2

This example gets the QoS policy named wildcard and updates the precedence of the policy to 250.


PS C:\> Get-NetQosPolicy –Name "wildcard" | Set-NetQosPolicy -Precedence 250

EXAMPLE 3

This example updates the QoS policy named Backup with additional matching conditions.


PS C:\> Set-NetQosPolicy –Name "Backup" -IPDstPortStart 3501 -IPDstPortEnd 3510

EXAMPLE 4

This example updates the QoS policy named IIS, so that it applies to the return traffic for both the specified URI and subdirectories and files under the URI. This cmdlet also sets a new throttling rate at 3,000,000 bytes per second. Note: An alias for the ThrottleRateActionBytesPerSecond parameter is ThrottleRateAction. Another alias is MaxBw.


PS C:\> Set-NetQosPolicy –Name "IIS" -Recursive $true -ThrottleRateActionBytesPerSecond 3000KB
