Move-SCVMHostGroup

Updated: September 27, 2012

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager

Move-SCVMHostGroup

Moves a host group from the current location to a new location under a different host group parent.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Move-SCVMHostGroup [-VMHostGroup] <HostGroup> -ParentHostGroup <HostGroup> [-JobGroup <Guid> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Move-SCVMHostGroup cmdlet moves one or more host group objects, which contain virtual machine hosts managed by System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), from the current location to a new location under a different host group parent. You can place host groups under the default root host group (All Hosts) or under any other host group created by an administrator.

All hosts within a moved host group acquire a new host path relative to the root host group. Changing the structure of host groups might change which Self Service User or Delegated Administrator user roles have access to the hosts contained within the affected host groups, or to the virtual machines deployed on those hosts.

<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.

  • HostGroup

Notes

  • Requires a VMM host group object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-SCVMHostGroup cmdlet.

Examples

1: Move one host group to a new parent host group.

The first command gets the host group named OldHostGroup and stores the host group object in the $OldHostGroup variable.

The second command gets the host group named NewHostGroup and stores this host group object in the $NewHostGroup variable.

The last command moves the host group stored in the $OldHostGroup variable (OldHostGroup) to a location under its new parent host group, stored in the $NewHostGroup variable.


PS C:\> $OldHostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup -Name "OldHostGroup"PS C:\> $NewHostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup -Name "NewHostGroup"PS C:\> Move-SCVMHostGroup -VMHostGroup $OldHostGroup -ParentHostGroup $NewHostGroup

2: Move all host groups to a new parent host group.

The first command gets all host group objects and stores them in the $AllGroups array. This includes the default parent host group (All Hosts).

The second command creates a host group object named NewHostGroup01 and stores it in the $HostGroup variable.

The last command passes each host group object stored in the $AllGroups variable to the Move-VMHostGroup cmdlet, which moves each host group object to location stored in the $HostGroup variable, except for All Hosts because All Hosts is the default parent host group and cannot be moved.


PS C:\> $AllGroups = Get-SCVMHostGroupPS C:\> $HostGroup = New-SCVMHostGroup -Name "NewHostGroup01"PS C:\> $AllGroups | Move-SCVMHostGroup -ParentHostGroup $HostGroup
