   [[-Priority] <UInt32>]
   [-ComputerName <String[]>]
   [-Passthru]

   [-WhatIf]

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:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-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:.
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Passthru

Specifies that an Microsoft.Virtualization.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:2
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
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Outputs

None by default; Microsoft.Virtualization.Powershell.MigrationNetwork if -PassThru is specified.
