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.

Required Parameters

-SanName

Specifies the virtual storage area network (SAN) name to associate with this virtual Fibre Channel host bus adapter. Use the Get-VMSan cmdlet to get a list of all virtual SANs on the host.
