Description

The Set-VMHost cmdlet configures a Hyper-V host.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Set-VMHost -MaximumVirtualMachineMigrations 10 -MaximumStorageMigrations 10

This example configures the local Hyper-V host to allow 10 simultaneous live migrations and storage migrations.

Example 2

PS C:\> Set-VMHost -MacAddressMinimum 00155D020600 -MacAddressMaximum 00155D0206FF

This example configures a range of MAC addresses range for the local Hyper-V host.

Example 3

PS C:\> Set-VMHost -UseAnyNetworkForMigration $true

This example enables the use of any network for incoming live migrations on the local Hyper-V host.

Example 4

PS C:\> Set-VMHost -VirtualHardDiskPath "C:\Hyper-V\Virtual Hard Disks" -VirtualMachinePath "C:\Hyper-V\Configuration Files"

This example specifies new default locations for virtual hard disksand virtual machines on the local Hyper-V host.

Example 5

PS C:\> Set-VMHost -FibreChannelWwnn C003FF0000FFFF00 -FibreChannelWwpnMinimum C003FF661D200000 -FibreChannelWwpnMaximum C003FF661D200000

This example configures Fibre Channel host settings on the local Hyper-V host.

Example 6

PS C:\> Set-VMHost -NumaSpanningEnabled $false

This example disables NUMA spanning on the local Hyper-V host.

Example 7

PS C:\> Set-VMHost -ResourceMeteringSaveInterval 01:30:00

This example configures the local Hyper-V host to save data that tracks resource consumption every hour and a half.

Example 8

PS C:\> Set-VMHost -VirtualMachineMigrationAuthenticationType Kerberos

The example configures the local Hyper-V host to use Kerberos to authenticate incoming live migrations.

Required 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:0

Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-ComputerName

Specifies one or more Hyper-V hosts on which this cmdlet operates. 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:0
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:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-EnableEnhancedSessionMode

Indicates whether users can use enhanced mode when they connect to virtual machines on this server by using Virtual Machine Connection.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-FibreChannelWwnn

Specifies the default value of the World Wide Node Name on the Hyper-V host.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-FibreChannelWwpnMaximum

Specifies the maximum value that can be used to generate World Wide Port Names on the Hyper-V host. Use with the FibreChannelWwpnMinimum parameter to establish a range of WWPNs that the specified Hyper-V host can assign to virtual Fibre Channel adapters.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-FibreChannelWwpnMinimum

Specifies the minimum value that can be used to generate the World Wide Port Names on the Hyper-V host. Use with the FibreChannelWwpnMaximum parameter to establish a range of WWPNs that the specified Hyper-V host can assign to virtual Fibre Channel adapters.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MacAddressMaximum

Specifies the maximum MAC address using a valid hexadecimal value. Use with the MacAddressMinimum parameter to establish a range of MAC addresses that the specified Hyper-V host can assign to virtual machines configured to receive dynamic MAC addresses.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MacAddressMinimum

Specifies the minimum MAC address using a valid hexadecimal value. Use with the MacAddressMaximum parameter to establish a range of MAC addresses that the specified Hyper-V host can assign to virtual machines configured to receive dynamic MAC addresses.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
