Set-SCVirtualizationManager

Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

Set-SCVirtualizationManager

Changes the properties of a VMware vCenter Server that is managed by VMM.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Set-SCVirtualizationManager [-VirtualizationManager] <VirtualizationManager> [-Certificate <ClientCertificate> ] [-Credential <VMMCredential> ] [-EnableSecureMode <Boolean> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-TCPPort <UInt32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-SCVirtualizationManager cmdlet changes one or more properties of a VMware vCenter Server that is managed by Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). A vCenter Server manages VMware ESX hosts and VMware-based virtual machines.

Properties that you can change include settings for the TCP port used to connect to the vCenter Server, credentials used to access the vCenter Server, and updating a vCenter Server security certificate.

If a security certificate for a vCenter Server expires or a self-signed certificate is replaced by a certificate from a third-party Certification Authority (CA), you must update both the vCenter Server and VMM:

-- First, replace the current vCenter certificate with the new certificate in vCenter. Refer to the VMware documentation for instructions.

-- Next, update the certificate in VMM by importing the new certificate into VMM. See example 3 for this cmdlet.

For more information about including a VMware VirtualCenter Server as a virtualization manager in a Virtual Machine Manager environment, type Get-Help Add-SCVirtualizationManager -detailed.

Parameters

-Certificate<ClientCertificate>

Specifies a security certificate object.

<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.

  • VirtualizationManager

Notes

  • This command requires a VMM virtualization manager object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-SCVirtualizationManager cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Specify new credentials for a virtualization manager

The first command gets the virtualization manager object named VirtMgrServer01 from the VMM database, and then stores the object in the $VirtManager variable.

The second command gets the Run As account named Host Computer Account 04, and then stores the account in the $Credential variable.

The last command changes the stored credentials for VirtMgrServer01 that are used when VMM connects to the external service.


PS C:\> $VirtManager = Get-SCVirtualizationManager -ComputerName "VirtMgrServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $Credential = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount04"
PS C:\> Set-SCVirtualizationManager -VirtualizationManager $VirtManager -Credential $Credential
