Changes properties of the VMM management server.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Set-SCVMMServer [-AutomaticLogicalNetworkCreationEnabled <Boolean> ] [-AutomaticVirtualNetworkCreationEnabled <Boolean> ] [-BackupLogicalNetworkMatch <LogicalNetworkMatchOption> {Disabled | FirstDNSSuffixLabel | DNSSuffix | NetworkConnectionName | VirtualNetworkSwitchName} ] [-CEIPOptIn <Boolean> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-LibraryRefresherEnabled <Boolean> ] [-LibraryRefresherFrequency <UInt16> ] [-LogicalNetworkMatch <LogicalNetworkMatchOption> {Disabled | FirstDNSSuffixLabel | DNSSuffix | NetworkConnectionName | VirtualNetworkSwitchName} ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMConnectDefaultPort <UInt32> ] [-VMConnectGatewayCertificatePassword <SecureString> ] [-VMConnectGatewayCertificatePath <String> ] [-VMConnectHostIdentificationMode <VMConnectHostIDMode> {FQDN | IPv4 | IPv6 | HostName} ] [-VMConnectHyperVCertificatePassword <SecureString> ] [-VMConnectHyperVCertificatePath <String> ] [-VMConnectTimeToLiveInMinutes <Int32> ] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [-VMRCAccessAccount <String> ] [-VMRCDefaultPort <UInt32> ] [-VMSubnetIDRangeEnd <UInt32> ] [-VMSubnetIDRangeStart <UInt32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-SCVMMServer cmdlet changes one or more properties of the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) management server. VMM settings that you can change with the Set-SCVMMServer cmdlet include the following:

-- Configure Federated Authentication

You can use the parameters provided with Set-SCVMMServer to configure Federated Authentication. Federated authentication allows a user to connect to the console of a virtual machine without having credentials on the Hyper-V host computer. Use the New-SCVMConnectFedAuth cmdlet to issue Federated Authentication tokens.

-- Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) Participation

You can use Set-SCVMMServer to specify whether to enable Service Quality Metrics (SQM) for this VMM management server.

-- Library Settings

You can use Set-SCVMMServer to specify whether the Virtual Machine Manager library refresher is enabled and, if so, how often objects in the library are refreshed.

-- Remote Control

You can use Set-SCVMMServer to configure the default remote control port to use when connecting to virtual machines (VMConnect).

-- Contact for Self-Service Users

You can use Set-SCVMMServer to specify the e-mail address of an administrator who supports self-service users.

-- Network Settings

You can use the Set-VMMServer cmdlet to configure how to match logical networks. You can also enable creation of logical and virtual networks automatically.

-- Guest Agent Settings

You can use Set-SCVMMServer to select the method used to communicate with the VMM guest agent: FQDN or IP Address.

Parameters

-AutomaticLogicalNetworkCreationEnabled<Boolean>

Indicates whether logical networks are created automatically. When set to $True, a new logical network is created, based on the logical network matching settings, if the host network network adapter is not associated with a logical network.
