DESCRIPTION

The Add-VMFibreChannelHba cmdlet adds a virtual Fibre Channel host bus adapter to a virtual machine.

EXAMPLES

Example 1

PS C:\> Add-VMFibreChannelHba -VMName MyVM -SanName Production

This example adds the virtual Fibre Channel host bus adapter associated with virtual storage area network Production to a virtual machine named MyVM.

PARAMETERS
