Detailed Description

The New-SCVMHostConfig cmdlet has been deprecated. Use the New-SCPhysicalComputerConfig cmdlet.

Parameters

-BMCAddress<String>

Specifies, or updates, the out-of-band baseboard management controller (BMC) address for a specific physical machine. This might be an IP address, the fully qualified domain name (FQDN), or the DNS prefix (which is usually the same name as the NetBIOS name).

Typically, the BMC address and its connection to the network are separate from the IP address associated with a standard network adapter. Alternatively, some computers do use a standard network adapter to provide a single address for the BMC and for the network adapter. However, the BMC address has a unique port and is thus uniquely identifiable on the network.

Example IPv4 format: -BMCAddress "10.0.0.21"

Example Ipv6 format: -BMCAddress "2001:4898:2a:3:657b:9c7a:e1f0:6829"

Example FQDN format: -BMCAddress "Computer01.Contoso.com"

Example NetBIOS format: -BMCAddress "Computer01"

NOTE: By default, VMM uses an IP address or FQDN for the BMC address. However, it is also possible to create a Windows PowerShell module that enables you to specify other types of addresses as the BMC address.

-BMCCustomConfigurationProvider<ConfigurationProvider>

Specifies, or updates, a configuration provider object for a baseboard management controller (BMC). A configuration provider is a plug-in to VMM that translates VMM PowerShell commands to API calls that are specific to a type of baseboard management controller. This parameter should be used with the BMCProtocol parameter value of Custom.

-BMCPort<Int32>

Specifies, or updates, the out-of-band baseboard management controller (BMC) port for a specific physical machine. A BMC port is also known as a service processor port. Example default ports are 623 for IPMI and 443 for SMASH over WS-Man.

Example format: -BMCPort 80

-BMCProtocol<OutOfBandManagementType>

Specifies, or updates, the protocol that VMM uses to communicate with the out-of-band baseboard management controller (BMC). Valid values are:

-- IPMI
-- SMASH
-- Custom

A BMC (also known as a service processor or management controller) is a specialized controller on the motherboard of a server that acts an interface between the hardware and system management software. If the motherboard of a physical machine includes a BMC, when the machine is plugged in, whether it is powered off or powered on, and whether or not an operating system is installed, information about system hardware and the state of that system hardware health is available.

Example format: -BMCProtocol "Custom"

NOTE: The Custom protocol requires you to use the BMCCustomConfigurationProvider parameter.

-SMBiosGuid<Guid>

Specifies the System Management BIOS globally unique identifier (SMBIOS GUID) for a physical computer that is associated with a record for that physical computer in VMM. SMBIOS defines data structures and access methods that enable a user or application to store and retrieve information about hardware on this computer, such as the name of the system, manufacturer, or the system BIOS version. Windows operating systems retrieve SMBIOS data at system startup and make that data available to programs.
