Description

The Add-VMSwitchTeamMember cmdlet adds adapters as members to a virtual switch team.

Examples

Example 1: Add network adapters to a switch team

PS C:\> $VMSwitch = Get-VMSwitch -Name "Switch03"
PS C:\> Add-VMSwitchTeamMember -VMSwitch $VMSwitch -NetAdapterName "Adapter01","Adapter04"

The first command gets the virtual switch team named Switch03, and then stores it in the $VMSwitch variable.

The second command adds the network adapters named Adapter01 and Adapter04 as team members to the switch team in $VMSwitch.
