Examples

Example 1: Get all physical network adapters on the specified host

The first command gets the host object named VMHost01, and then stores the object in the $VMHost variable.

The second command gets all physical network adapter objects from VMHost01, and then stores the objects in the $HostAdapter variable.

The third command displays the name and connection state for each adapter.


PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $HostAdapter = Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter -VMHost $VMHost
PS C:\> $HostAdapter | select -Property Name, ConnectionState

Example 2: Get all physical network adapters in the VMM database

This command gets all physical network adapter objects on all hosts managed by the VMM server, and then displays the name, MAC address, host name, and maximum bandwidth for each adapter.


PS C:\> Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter | Format-List Name, MacAddress, VMHost, MaxBandwidth

Example 3: Get a physical network adapter by name from a specific host

The first command gets the host object named VMHost01, and then stores the object in the $VMHost variable.

The second command gets the network adapter object named HostAdapter01 from VMHost01, and then stores the object in the $HostAdapter variable.

The third command passes the adapter object stored in $HostAdapter to the Format-List cmdlet, which displays the name, whether or not the virtual LAN is enabled, and the current value for the VLAN mode, either Trunk or Access.


PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $HostAdapter = Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter -VMHost $VMHost -Name "HostAdapter01"
PS C:\> $HostAdapter | Format-List -Property Name,VLANEnabled,VLANMode

Example 4: Get each host network adapter that includes Broadcom in its name

This command gets host network adapter objects from VMMServer01 that include the string Broadcom in their name, and then displays the name and IP addresses for each adapter.


PS C:\> Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -match "Broadcom" } | Format-List -Property Name,IPAddresses
