Description

The Set-NetQosDcbxSetting cmdlet sets the data center bridging exchange (DCBX) settings. The only setting that Windows Server® 2012 and later allows a user to set is that the network adapters in computers that run Windows Server 2012 and later accept data center bridging (DCB) configurations from Windows Server 2012 and later or from a remote device by using the DCBX protocol, which is specified in the IEEE data center bridging (DCB) standard.

If the Willing parameter is set to $True, Windows Server 2012 or later does not send priority-based flow control (PFC) and traffic class settings to DCB-capable network adapters in the computer. If the Willing parameter is set to $False, Windows Server 2012 or later sends the settings to the network adapters.

Examples

Example 1: Enable the DCBX willing state

PS C:\> Set-NetQosDcbxSetting -Willing $True

This command enables the DCBX willing state, so that a DCB-capable network adapter is willing to accept configurations from a remote peer.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Specifies the input to this cmdlet. You can use this parameter, or you can pipe the input to this cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Willing

Specifies whether a DCB-capable network adapter accepts the configuration from a remote peer by using the DCBX protocol.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InterfaceAlias
Type:String
Aliases:IfAlias
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InterfaceIndex
Type:UInt32
Aliases:IfIndex
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

None

Outputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_NetQosDcbxSettingData

The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object. This cmdlet returns a MSFT_NetQosDcbxSettingData object that contains the DCBX setting configured in Windows Server 2012 and later. Only if you specify the PassThru parameter does the command return the MSFT_NetQosDcbxSettingData object.
