Detailed Description

The Set-SCDynamicOptimizationConfiguration cmdlet configures dynamic optimization for a host group.

Parameters

-Aggressiveness<Byte>

Specifies the level of improvement required before migrating a virtual machine from one host to another in order to load balance virtual machines. The higher the aggressiveness, the more resulting live migrations; the lower the aggressiveness, the fewer resulting live migrations. Valid values are: 1 through 5. The default value is 3 (Medium).

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.

  • DynamicOptimizationConfiguration

Examples

Example 1: Enable automatic mode for a dynamic optimization configuration

The first command gets the host group object named HostGroup01, and then stores the object in the $HostGroup variable.

The second command gets the dynamic optimization configuration object for the host group stored in $HostGroup, and then stores the object in the $DOConfig variable.

The last command enables automatic mode for the dynamic optimization configuration stored in $DOConfig.


PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup -Name "HostGroup01"
PS C:\> $DOConfig = Get-SCDynamicOptimizationConfiguration -VMHostGroup $HostGroup
PS C:\> Set-SCDynamicOptimizationConfiguration -DynamicOptimizationConfiguration $DOConfig -AutomaticMode

Example 2: Enable power optimization for a host group

The first command gets the host group object named HostGroup01, and then stores the object in the $HostGroup variable.

The second command gets the dynamic optimization configuration object for the host group stored in $HostGroup, and then stores the object in the $DOConfig variable.

The last command enables power optimization for the dynamic optimization configuration stored in $DOConfig.


PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup -Name "HostGroup01"
PS C:\> $DOConfig = Get-SCDynamicOptimizationConfiguration -VMHostGroup $HostGroup
PS C:\> Set-SCDynamicOptimizationConfiguration -DynamicOptimizationConfiguration $DOConfig -EnablePowerOptimization $True
