Update-ClusterVirtualMachineConfiguration

Refreshes the configuration of a clustered virtual machine within a failover cluster.

Syntax

Update-ClusterVirtualMachineConfiguration
      [[-Name] <String>]
      [-VMId <Guid>]
      [-InputObject <PSObject>]
      [-Cluster <String>]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Update-ClusterVirtualMachineConfiguration cmdlet refreshes the configuration of a clustered virtual machine within a failover cluster. Use this cmdlet if a hardware device, such as a network adapter, is to be added or removed or the hardware configuration settings, such as the setting for virtual memory, are being changed for a clustered virtual machine.

Examples

Example 1: Refresh a clustered virtual machine on the local cluster

PS C:\> Update-ClusterVirtualMachineConfiguration -Name "Virtual Machine Configuration VM1"
Name                State               Group               ResourceType 
----                -----               -----               ------------ 
Virtual Machine ... Online              Virtual Machine     Virtual Machine ...

This example refreshes the clustered virtual machine named Virtual Machine Configuration VM1 on the local cluster.

Example 2: Refresh a clustered virtual machine on a cluster

PS C:\> Update-ClusterVirtualMachineConfiguration -Name "Virtual Machine Configuration VM2" -Cluster cluster1
Name                State               Group               ResourceType 
----                -----               -----               ------------ 
Virtual Machine ... Online              Virtual Machine     Virtual Machine

This example refreshes the clustered virtual machine named Virtual Machine Configuration VM2 on the cluster named cluster1.
