Notes

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

Examples

Example 1: Create a MAC address pool

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

The second command creates a MAC address pool named MAC Address Pool 01 with an address range beginning with 00-1D-D8-B7-1C-00 and ending with 00-1D-D8-F4-1F-FF, as delineated by the MACAddressRangeStart and MACAddressRangeEnd parameters. The command also associates the pool with the host group stored in $HostGroup.


PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup | where { $_.Path -eq "All Hosts\HostGroup02\Production" }
PS C:\> New-SCMACAddressPool -Name "MAC Address Pool 01" -VMHostGroup $HostGroup -MACAddressRangeStart "00-1D-D8-B7-1C-00" -MACAddressRangeEnd "00-1D-D8-F4-1F-FF"
