New-NetworkControllerServer

Last Updated: 4/18/2017

SYNOPSIS

Creates or Updates a server resource in the Network Controller

SYNTAX

New-NetworkControllerServer [-ResourceId] <String> [[-Tags] <PSObject>] [-Properties] <ServerProperties>
 [[-Etag] <String>] [[-ResourceMetadata] <ResourceMetadata>] [-Force] -ConnectionUri <Uri>
 [-CertificateThumbprint <String>] [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-PassInnerException] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The New-NetworkControllerServer cmdlet creates updates a physical server resource in the Network Controller, or updates an existing one. After you add the server resource, Network Controller manages that server.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Add a server

PS C:\> $CredentialProperties = [Microsoft.Windows.NetworkController.CredentialProperties]@{Type="UsernamePassword";UserName="admin";Value="password"}
PS C:\> New-NetworkControllerCredential -ResourceId "Credential01" -ConnectionUri "https://restserver" -Properties $CredentialProperties
PS C:\> $Credential = Get-NetworkControllerCredential -ResourceId "Credential01" -ConnectionUri "https://restserver"
PS C:\> $ServerProperties = New-Object Microsoft.Windows.NetworkController.ServerProperties
PS C:\> $ServerProperties.Connections = @([Microsoft.Windows.NetworkController.Connection]@{ManagementAddresses=@("192.168.0.12");Credential=$Credential})
PS C:\> $ServerProperties.RackSlot = "1"
PS C:\> $ServerProperties.OS = "Windows Server 2016"
PS C:\> $ServerProperties.Vendor = "Dell"
PS C:\> $ServerProperties.Model = "PowerEdge R730"
PS C:\> New-NetworkControllerServer -ConnectionUri "https://networkcontroller" -ResourceId "Server01" -Properties $ServerProperties

The first command creates a CredentialProperties object, and then stores it in the $CredentialProperties variable.

The second command creates a credential that has the properties in $CredentialProperties by using the New-NetworkControllerCredential cmdlet.

The third command gets the credential by using the Get-NetworkControllerCredential cmdlet, and then stores it in the $Credential variable.

The fourth command creates a ServerProperties object by using the New-Object cmdlet. The command stores the object in the $ServerProperties variable.

The next five commands assign values to properties of $ServerProperties.

The final command adds a server to the Network Controller that has the resource ID Server01. The command identifies the Network Controller by URI. The command specifies the properties of the server by using $ServerProperties.

PARAMETERS

-CertificateThumbprint

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.
