Examples

Example 1: Move a host cluster to a different parent host group

The first command gets the host cluster object named VMHostCluster01.Contoso.com, and then stores the object in the $VMHostCluster variable.

The second command gets the host group object named Production, and then stores the object in the $DestinationHG variable.

The last command moves host cluster VMHostCluster01.Contoso.com, stored in $VMHostCluster, from its current host group to the host group named Production, stored in $DestinationHG.


PS C:\> $VMHostCluster = Get-SCVMHostCluster -Name "VMHostCluster01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $DestinationHG = Get-SCVMHostGroup -Name "Production"
PS C:\> Move-SCVMHostCluster -VMHostCluster $VMHostCluster -ParentHostGroup $DestinationHG
