Description

The Suspend-VMReplication cmdlet suspends, or pauses, replication of a virtual machine. To resume replication, use the Resume-VMReplication cmdlet to resume replication. When replication is resumed, all changes made since replication was suspended will be replicated.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\>Suspend-VMReplication VM01

Suspends replication of virtual machine VM01.

Example 2

PS C:\>Suspend-VMReplication *

Suspends replication of all virtual machines on the local Hyper-V host.

Required Parameters

-VM

Specifies the virtual machine whose replication is to be suspended.

Type:VirtualMachine[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMName

Specifies the name of the virtual machine whose replication is to be suspended.

Type:String[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMReplication

Specifies the virtual machine replication to be suspended.

Type:VMReplication[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-ComputerName

Specifies one or more Hyper-V hosts on which replication of a virtual machine is to be suspended. NetBIOS names, IP addresses, and fully-qualified domain names are allowable. The default is the local computer - use "localhost" or a dot (".") to specify the local computer explicitly.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:.
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
-PassThru

Specifies that a VMReplication object is to be passed through to the pipeline representing the replication to be suspended.

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

Specifies the replication relationship type of the virtual machine. Specify whether the replication relationship is a simple primary to replica or is an extended replication chain. The cmdlet suspends replication of the virtual machines that have the replication type that you specify.

Type:VMReplicationRelationshipType
Aliases:Relationship
Accepted values:Simple, Extended
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

Outputs

None by default; VMReplication if -PassThru is specified.
