<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.

  • HostProfile[]
  • HostProfile

Examples

Example 1: Set the time zone value for a specified host profile

This command gets the host profile object named HostProfile01, and then sets its time zone value to the U.S. Eastern time zone (035).


PS C:\> Get-SCVMHostProfile -Name "HostProfile01" | Set-SCVMHostProfile -TimeZone 035

Example 2: Add a host network adapter profile to a host profile

The first command gets the host profile object named HostProfile01, and then stores the object in the $VMHostProfile variable.

The second command gets the host network adapter profile object with the ID of 259f47c7-c5a9-429d-a421-d232f9b34991, and then stores the object in the $HostNetAdapterProf variable.

The last command adds the host network adapter profile stored in $HostNetAdapterProf to HostProfile01.


PS C:\> $VMHostProfile = Get-SCVMHostProfile -Name "HostProfile01"
PS C:\> $HostNetAdapterProf = Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapterProfile -ID "259f47c7-c5a9-429d-a421-d232f9b34991"
PS C:\> Set-SCVMHostProfile -VMHostPRofile $VMHostProfile -VMHostNetworkAdapterProfile $HostNetAdapterProf
