Detailed Description

The Set-SCCloudCapacity cmdlet modifies the cloud capacity settings for a private cloud in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). You can update the following cloud capacity dimensions:

-- virtual machines
-- virtual CPUs
-- custom quota points
-- storage (GB)
-- memory (MB)

Alternatively, you can set any or all of the dimensions to use the maximum capacity.

Parameters

-CloudCapacity<CloudCapacity>

Specifies a cloud capacity object.

-CPUCount<UInt32>

Specifies the number of CPUs on a virtual machine, on a hardware profile, or on a template. See the examples for a specific cmdlet to determine how that cmdlet uses this parameter.

-- Hyper-V. Up to four CPUs per virtual machine, depending on guest operating system.
-- VMware ESX. Up to four CPUs per virtual machine for any supported guest operating system, except for a virtual machine that runs Windows NT 4.0, which supports one CPU.
-- Citrix XenServer. Up to eight CPUs per virtual machine, depending on guest operating system.

<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.

Examples

Example 1: Change the cloud capacity properties of a specified cloud

The first command gets the private cloud object named Cloud01, and then stores the object in the $Cloud variable.

The second command gets the cloud capacity for the private cloud stored in $Cloud, and then stores it in the $CloudCapacity variable.

The last command indicates that there should be a limit placed on the virtual CPU count for the cloud capacity stored in $CloudCapacity, and changes the virtual CPU count capacity to 20.


PS C:\> $Cloud = Get-SCCloud -Name "Cloud01"
PS C:\> $CloudCapacity = Get-SCCloudCapacity -Cloud $Cloud
PS C:\> Set-SCCloudCapacity -CloudCapacity $CloudCapacity -VirtualCPUCountLimited $True -VirtualCPUCount 20

Example 2: Change the cloud capacity properties of a specific private cloud using a job group

The first command creates a new GUID, and then stores it in the $Guid variable. Subsequent commands that include this GUID are collected into a single job group.

The second command gets the private cloud object named Cloud02, and then stores the object in the $Cloud variable.

The third command gets the cloud capacity object for the private cloud stored in $Cloud, and stores the object in the $CloudCapacity variable.

The fourth command sets a limit of 50 virtual machines, 100 virtual CPUs and 500 GB of storage on the cloud capacity. Using the JobGroup parameter specifies that this command will not run until just before the final command that includes the JobGroup with the same GUID.

The last command sets the capacity properties on the private cloud stored in $Cloud using the settings that were specified in the fourth command. This command uses the JobGroup parameter to run Set-SCCloudCapacity just before Set-SCCloud runs so that the settings will be associated with the specified private cloud.


PS C:\> $Guid = [System.Guid]::NewGuid()
PS C:\> $Cloud = Get-SCCloud -Name "Cloud02"
PS C:\> $CloudCapacity = Get-SCCloudCapacity -Cloud $Cloud
PS C:\> Set-SCCloudCapacity -JobGroup $Guid -VirtualMachinesLimited $True -VirtualMachines 50 -VirtualCPUCountLimited $True -VirtualCPUCount 100 -StorageLimited $True -StorageGB 500
PS C:\> Set-SCCloud -JobGroup $Guid -Cloud $Cloud
