     [-NetworkController] <String>
     [[-IncludeTraces] <Boolean>]
     [[-OutputDirectory] <String>]
     [[-Credential] <PSCredential>]

Description

The Debug-NetworkController cmdlet queries a Network Controller for detailed diagnostic information.

You can run this cmdlet from a computer that has Layer-3 connectivity to the Representational State Transfer (REST) IP address of the Network Controller. The computer must have the Network Controller REST certificate installed.

Examples

Example 1: Set up logging on nodes and hosts

PS C:\>Debug-NetworkController -NetworkController "NC-0.contoso.cloud.com" -SetupDiagnostics

This command sets up logging on all Network Controller nodes and hosts.

Example 2: Collect diagnostics data and logs from all nodes and hosts

PS C:\>$Credential = Get-Credential
PS C:\> Debug-NetworkController -NetworkController "NC-0.contoso.cloud.com" -Credential $Credential -OutputDirectory "C:\DiagnosticsData"

The first command creates credentials by using the Get-Credential cmdlet, and then stores it in the $Credential variable. The command prompts you for user name and password.

The second command collects diagnostics data and logs from all Network Controller nodes and hosts.

Example 3: Collect diagnostics data only

PS C:\>$Credential = Get-Credential
PS C:\> Debug-NetworkController -NetworkController "NC-0.contoso.cloud.com" -Credential $Credential -OutputDirectory C:\DiagnosticsData -IncludeTraces:$False

The first command creates credentials, and then stores it in the $Credential variable.

The second command collects diagnostics data only.
