Description

The Set-VMVideo cmdlet configures the video settings for virtual machines.

Examples

Example 1: Set resolution for a virtual machine display

PS C:\> Set-VMVideo -VMName "VM06" -HorizontalResolution 1920 -VerticalResolution 1200

This command sets the video resolution for the virtual machine named VM06 to 1920x1200.

Required Parameters

-VM

Specifies an array of virtual machines for which this cmdlet configures video settings. To obtain a VirtualMachine object, use the Get-VM cmdlet.

Type:VirtualMachine[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMName

Specifies an array of names of virtual machines for which this cmdlet configures video settings.

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

Specifies an array of virtual machine video settings that this cmdlet configures. To obtain a VMVideo object, use the Get-VMVideo cmdlet.

Type:VMVideo[]
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:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ComputerName

Specifies one or more Hyper-V hosts that run this cmdlet. 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

-HorizontalResolution

Specifies the horizontal resolution for the virtual machine display.

Type:UInt16
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Passthru

Indicates that this cmdlet returns the Microsoft.HyperV.PowerShell.VMVideo object that it modifies.

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

Specifies the resolution type for the virtual machine display. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Maximum. The input HorizontalResolution * VerticalResolution is the maximum supported resolution. All standard resolutions smaller than HorizontalResolution * VerticalResolution are also supported.
  • Single. The input HorizontalResolution * VerticalResolution is the only supported resolution.
  • Default. The supported resolutions are those in the list of standard resolutions. Input HorizontalResolution * VerticalResolution is ignored.
Type:ResolutionType
Parameter Sets:Maximum, Single, Default
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VerticalResolution

Specifies the vertical resolution for the virtual machine display.

Type:UInt16
