Description

The Add-VMMigrationNetwork cmdlet adds a network for virtual machine migration on one or more virtual machine hosts.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Add-VMMigrationNetwork 192.168.0.1

This example adds an IPv4 address as a live migration network on the local Hyper-V host.

Example 2

PS C:\> Add-VMMigrationNetwork 192.168.10.0/24

This example adds an IPv4 address range as possible live migration networks on the local Hyper-V host by using a subnet mask.

Example 3

PS C:\> Add-VMMigrationNetwork 2001:836c:6456:1c99::/32

This example adds an IPv6 address range as possible live migration networks on the local Hyper-V host by adding a subnet mask.

Example 4

PS C:\> Add-VMMigrationNetwork 2001:836c:6456:1c99::/64 -Priority 8

This example adds an IPv6 address range as possible live migration networks on the local Hyper-V host by using a subnet mask and specifying the network as lower priority.

Required Parameters

-Subnet

Specifies a string representing an IPv4 or IPv6 subnet mask which identifies the network to be added for virtual machine migration.

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

Optional Parameters

-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[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ComputerName

Specifies one or more Hyper-V hosts on which the network is to be added for virtual machine migration. 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: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
-Credential

Specifies one or more user accounts that have permission to perform this action. The default is the current user.

Type:PSCredential[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Passthru

Specifies that an Microsoft.HyperV.PowerShell.MigrationNetwork object is to be passed through to the pipeline representing the network added for virtual machine migration.

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

Specifies the priority of the network to be added for virtual machine migration. Multiple networks can have the same priority.

Type:UInt32
Position:1
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; Microsoft.HyperV.PowerShell.MigrationNetwork if PassThru is specified.
