New-SCLogicalNetworkDefinition

Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

New-SCLogicalNetworkDefinition

Creates a definition for a logical network that can be associated with one or more host groups.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
New-SCLogicalNetworkDefinition -LogicalNetwork <LogicalNetwork> -Name <String> -SubnetVLan <SubnetVLan[]> -VMHostGroup <HostGroup[]> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-SCLogicalNetworkDefinition cmdlet creates a definition for a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) logical network. The logical network can be associated with one or more host groups. A logical network definition is also called a network site.

After you create a new logical network, use the logical network definition to assign IP subnets and VLANs to the logical network. For information about creating logical networks, type Get-Help New-SCLogicalNetwork -detailed.

Parameters

-JobVariable<String>

Specifies that job progress is tracked and stored in the variable named by this parameter.

<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.

Outputs

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

  • LogicalNetworkDefiniton

Notes

  • This cmdlet requires a VMM logical network object, which you can retrieve by using the Get-SCLogicalNetwork cmdlet, and a VMM host group object that you can retrieve by using the Get-SCVMHostGroup cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Create a logical network definition for a logical network

The first command gets the logical network named LogicalNetwork01, and then stores it in the $LogicalNetwork variable.

The second command creates a host group array, and then stores it in the $HostGroup variable. The third and fourth commands retrieve the host groups named HostGroup01 and Production, and adds them to the $HostGroup array.

The fifth command creates a subnet VLAN array, and stores it in the $SubnetVLAN variable. The sixth and seventh commands create SubnetVLAN objects with the specified subnet and VLAN values, and then stores the objects in the $SubnetVLAN array.

The eighth command creates a logical network definition named Logical Network Definition 01 for the logical network object stored in the $LogicalNetwork variable using the objects stored in the $HostGroup and $SubnetVLAN arrays.


PS C:\> $LogicalNetwork = Get-SCLogicalNetwork -Name "LogicalNetwork01"
PS C:\> $HostGroup =@()
PS C:\> $HostGroup += Get-SCVMHostGroup | where { $_.Path -eq "All Hosts\HostGroup01" }
PS C:\> $Hostgroup += Get-SCVMHostGroup | where { $_.Path -eq "All Hosts\HostGroup02\Production" }
PS C:\> $SubnetVLAN = @()
PS C:\> $SubnetVLAN += New-SCSubnetVLAN -Subnet 10.0.0.0/24 -VLAN 25
PS C:\> $SubnetVLAN += New-SCSubnetVLAN -Subnet FD4A:29CD:184F:3A2C::/64 -VLAN 25
PS C:\> New-SCLogicalNetworkDefinition -Name "Logical Network Definition 01" -LogicalNetwork $LogicalNetwork -VMHostGroup $HostGroup -SubnetVLAN $SubnetVLAN
