Set-SCVirtualNetwork

Changes the properties of a virtual network configured on a host managed by VMM.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Host
Set-SCVirtualNetwork [-VirtualNetwork] <VirtualNetwork> [-BoundToVMHost <Boolean> ] [-Description <String> ] [-HostBoundVLanId <UInt16> ] [-JobGroup <Guid> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-Name <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: Cluster
Set-SCVirtualNetwork [-ClusterVirtualNetwork] <ClusterVirtualNetwork> [-BoundToVMHost <Boolean> ] [-Description <String> ] [-HostBoundVLanId <UInt16> ] [-JobGroup <Guid> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-Name <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: LogicalSwitch
Set-SCVirtualNetwork [-VirtualNetwork] <VirtualNetwork> -LogicalSwitch <LogicalSwitch> [-Description <String> ] [-JobGroup <Guid> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMHostNetworkAdapters <HostNetworkAdapter[]> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-SCVirtualNetwork cmdlet changes the properties of a virtual network configured on a host managed by Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).

Virtual network properties that you can change include:

-- Any host. For a virtual network configured for virtual machines deployed on any host supported by VMM (a Hyper-V, VMware ESX, or Citrix XenServer host), you can set or modify the name or description.

-- Hyper-V host only. If the host is a Hyper-V host, you can also configure whether virtual machines are bound to the host, and can thus access the host operating system, and you can specify a numerical identifier for a virtual local area network (VLAN) on the host.

Parameters

-BoundToVMHost<Boolean>

Indicates whether a virtual network is bound to a host. Binding a virtual network to a host enables network communication to the host.

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • VirtualNetwork

Examples

Example 1: Unbind a virtual network from a host

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

The second command gets the virtual network object named InternalVNet01 from VMHost01, and then stores the object in the $VirtualNetwork variable.

The last command renames the virtual network to UnboundVNet01 and sets -VMHostBound to $False. This unbinds the virtual network from the host, which prevents any virtual machines that are attached to this virtual network from accessing the host through this network.


PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $VirtualNetwork = Get-SCVirtualNetwork -VMHost $VMHost -Name "InternalVNet01"
PS C:\> Set-SCVirtualNetwork -VirtualNetwork $VirtualNetwork -Name "UnboundVNet01" -BoundToVMHost $False
