Description

The Add-VMSwitchExtensionPortFeature cmdlet adds a feature supported by a virtual switch extension to a virtual machine network adapter. This cmdlet also configures built-in virtual switch features.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\>$feature = Get-VMSystemSwitchExtensionPortFeature -FeatureName "Ethernet Switch Port Security Settings"
PS C:\>$feature.SettingData.EnableDhcpGuard = $true
PS C:\>$feature.SettingData.EnableRouterGuard = $true
PS C:\>Add-VMSwitchExtensionPortFeature -VMName VM2 -VMSwitchExtensionFeature $feature

Adds a feature to virtual machine VM2. The feature here is a port security feature supported by the extension Microsoft Virtual Ethernet Switch Native Extension.

Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SwitchName

Specifies the name of the virtual switch.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VM

Specifies the virtual machine in which the feature is to be added.

Type:VirtualMachine[]
Position:1

Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-ComputerName

Specifies one or more Hyper-V hosts on which a feature is to be added to a virtual network adapter. 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.

-Passthru

Specifies that an object is to be passed through to the pipeline representing the feature to be added.

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

Specifies the name of the virtual machine network adapter for which the feature is to be added.
