Detailed Description

The Set-NetLbfoTeam cmdlet sets the TeamingMode or LoadBalancingAlgorithm parameters on the specified NIC team.

You need administrator privileges to use Set-NetLbfoTeam.

Parameters

-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.

-LoadBalancingAlgorithm<LBAlgos>

Specifies the load balancing algorithm the NIC team uses to distribute network traffic between the interfaces. You can specify one of the following load balancing algorithms:

-- Dynamic:  Uses the source and destination TCP ports and the IP addresses to create a hash for outbound traffic.  Moves outbound streams from team member to team member as needed to balance team member utilization.  When you specify this algorithm with the TeamingMode parameter and the SwitchIndependent value, inbound traffic is routed to a particular team member. 

-- TransportPorts: Uses the source and destination TCP ports and the IP addresses to create a hash, and then assigns the packets that have the matching hash value to one of the available interfaces. When you specify this algorithm with the TeamingMode parameter and the SwitchIndependent value all inbound traffic arrives on the primary team member.

-- IPAddresses: Uses the source and destination IP addresses to create a hash, and then assigns the packets that have the matching hash value to one of the available interfaces. When you specify this algorithm with the TeamingMode parameter and the SwitchIndependent value, all inbound traffic arrives on the primary team member.

-- MacAddresses: Uses the source and destination MAC addresses to create a hash and then assigns the packets that have the matching hash value to one of the available interfaces. When you specify this algorithm with the TeamingMode parameter and the SwitchIndependent value, all inbound traffic arrives on the primary team member.

-- HyperVPort: Distributes network traffic based on the source virtual machine Hyper-V switch port identifier. When you specify this algorithm with the TeamingMode parameter and the SwitchIndependent value, inbound traffic is routed to the same team member as the switch port’s outgoing traffic.

-TeamingMode<TeamingModes>

Specifies the mode of the NIC teaming. You can specify one of the following teaming modes:

-- LACP: Requires configuration on both the switch and the host to identify which links form the team. Uses the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) to identify links that are connected between the host and a given switch.

-- Static: Requires configuration on both the switch and the host to identify which links form the team.

-- SwitchIndependent: Specifies that a network switch configuration is not needed for the NIC team. Because the network switch is not configured to know about the NIC teaming, the team members can be connected to different switches.

-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.

<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.

  • None

    This cmdlet takes no input objects.


Outputs

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

  • MSFT_NetLbfoTeam

    By default, this cmdlet produces no output. If the PassThru parameter is specified, the cmdlet returns the updated MSFT_NetLbfoTeam object.


Examples

Example 1: Set the teaming mode

This command sets the teaming mode of the team named Team1 to LACP.


PS C:\> Set-NetLbfoTeam -Name Team1 –TeamingMode LACP

Example 2: Set the load balancing algorithm

This command sets the load balancing algorithm of the team named Team1 to HyperVPorts.


PS C:\> Set-NetLbfoTeam -Name Team1 –LoadBalancingAlgorithm HyperVPorts

Example 3: Set the teaming mode and load balancing algorithm

This command sets the teaming mode and load balancing algorithm of the team named Team1 at the same time. The teaming mode is set to LACP and the load balancing algorithm is set to HyperVPorts.


PS C:\> Set-NetLbfoTeam -Name Team1 –TeamingMode LACP –LoadBalancingAlgorithm HyperVPorts
