Disable-NetAdapterQos

Disables quality of service (QoS) on the network adapter, specifically data center bridging (DCB).

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByName
Disable-NetAdapterQos [-Name] <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-IncludeHidden] [-NoRestart] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByInstanceID
Disable-NetAdapterQos -InterfaceDescription <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-IncludeHidden] [-NoRestart] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: InputObject (cdxml)
Disable-NetAdapterQos -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-NoRestart] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Disable-NetAdapterQos cmdlet disables quality of service (QoS) on a network adapter. The QoS features, which include bandwidth allocation and priority based flow control, are specified in the IEEE data center bridging (DCB) standard. When QoS is disabled, the computer will not send to the network adapter any configuration for the QoS features. This cmdlet does not stop the network adapter from setting up configurations and utilizing the hardware QoS capabilities.

A network adapter that supports DCB is typically known as a converged network adapter. It supports both storage and networking functionalities. In some use cases the DCB must be enabled to support the storage functionalities. If DCB on a network adapter is disabled from the point of view of a computer, then it may still be functioning on the network adapter.

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.

-IncludeHidden

Specifies both visible and hidden network adapters should be included. By default only visible network adapters are included. If a wildcard character is used in identifying a network adapter and this parameter has been specified, then the wildcard string is matched against both hidden and visible network adapters.

-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.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_NetAdapterQosSettingData[]

    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 input object is a list of network adapter objects, such as output from the Get-NetAdapter cmdlet.


Outputs

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

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

    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 output object contains QoS capabilities and configurations on a network adapter. The output object is returned only when PassThru parameter is specified.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example disables QoS on all network adapters and restarts the network adapters.


PS C:\> Disable-NetAdapterQos –Name *

EXAMPLE 2

This example disables QoS on a network adapter named Ethernet 2 and restarts the network adapter.


 

PS C:\> Disable-NetAdapterQos –Name "Ethernet 2"

 

This is the cmdlet using wildcard characters.


PS C:\> Disable-NetAdapterQos –Name E*2

EXAMPLE 3

This example gets all of the network adapters that support QoS and disables QoS on all of them and restarts the QoS network adapters.


 

PS C:\> $netAdapterQoS1 = Get-NetAdapterQos –Name *

 

PS C:\> Disable-NetAdapterQos –InputObject $netAdapterQoS1

 

This is a version of the cmdlet that gets all of the network adapters that support QoS and disables QoS on all of them via the pipeline, then restarts the QoS network adapters.


PS C:\> Get-NetAdapterQos –Name * | Disable-NetAdapterQos
