New-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopologyNode

New-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopologyNode

Adds or changes a topology node in the discovered topology.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
New-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopologyNode [-ResourceId] <String> [-Properties] <DiscoveredTopologyNodeProperties> [[-ResourceMetadata] <ResourceMetadata> ] [[-VersionId] <String> ] [[-Force]] -ConnectionUri <String> [-CertificateThumbprint <String> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopologyNode cmdlet adds or changes a topology node in the discovered topology. To discover the topology of a network, run the Invoke-NetworkControllerTopologyDiscovery cmdlet.

For information about discovered network topology, see the Get-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopology cmdlet.

If the discovered topology does not identify certain nodes, you can add them by using this cmdlet. If you develop a script or tool that compares the discovered topology to the expected topology, the comparison logic can show nodes that are present in the network, but that are not discoverable by the discovery logic. Adding those nodes to the discovered topology lets your script ignore these elements when it displays the differences between the discovered and the actual topology.

This cmdlet can modify a topology node to hide it by specifying the IsHidden property. If the discovery logic displays an element that is not present in the actual topology, you can hide it so that a script or tool that compares the discovered and the actual topologies does not display that anomaly.

Parameters

-CertificateThumbprint<String>

Specifies the certificate thumbprint of a digital public key X.509 certificate of a user account that has permission to perform this action. In order for Network Controller to authorize the account, specify this thumbprint by using the ClientCertificateThumbprint parameter of the Install-NetworkController or Set-NetworkController cmdlet.

-Properties<DiscoveredTopologyNodeProperties>

Specifies the properties of the topology node this cmdlet adds or modifies. For discovered topology nodes, you can modify the following property:

-- IsHidden. Whether to hide the node. If you run the Get-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopology cmdlet, a hidden node does not appear.

For a node that you add manually, you can specify the following properties:

-- Name. The name of the node.
-- Model. The model of the node.
-- OS. The operating system of the node.
-- Serial. The serial number of the node.
-- Type. The type of node. Acceptable values for this property are Server and Switch.
-- Vendor. The vendor of the node.
-- TerminationPoints. Use this property to add termination points manually to the manually added topology node.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. 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.

Examples

Example 1: Create and add a node

The first command creates a DiscoveredTopologyNodeProperties object by using the New-Object cmdlet. The command stores the node in the $Node variable.

The next three command assign values to some of the properties of the node.

The final command adds a node to the discovered topology that has the resource ID Node11. The command specifies a connection URI and the properties stored in $Node.


PS C:\> $Node = New-Object Microsoft.Windows.NetworkController.DiscoveredTopologyNodeProperties
PS C:\> $Node.Name = "Host_01"
PS C:\> $Node.Type = "Server" 
PS C:\> $Node.Vendor = "HP"
PS C:\> New-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopologyNode -ConnectionUri "https://restserver" -ResourceId "Node11" -Properties $Node

Example 2: Hide a topology node

The first command gets an existing topology node by using the Get-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopologyNode cmdlet, and then stores it in the $Node variable.

The second command assigns a value of true to the IsHidden property of $Node.

The final command updates the properties of the node to match the current value of $Node.


PS C:\> $Node = Get-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopologyNode -ConnectionUri "https://networkcontroller" -ResourceId "Node12"
PS C:\> $Node.IsHidden = "true"
PS C:\> New-NetworkControllerDiscoveredTopologyNode -ConnectionUri "https://networkcontroller" -ResourceId "Node12" -Properties $Node
