Description

The Enable-NetworkSwitchFeature cmdlet enables specified features of a network switch.

Examples

Example 1: Enable a feature by using its name

PS C:\>$Session = New-CimSession -ComputerName "NetworkSwitch08"
PS C:\> Enable-NetworkSwitchFeature -CimSession $Session -Name "SSH"

The first command creates a CimSession for a network switch, and then stores it in the $Session variable. For more information about CimSession objects, type Get-Help New-CimSession.

The second command enables the feature named SSH for the switch NetworkSwitch08 by using the $Session object.

Example 2: Enable a feature by using its instance ID

PS C:\>Enable-NetworkSwitchFeature -CimSession $Session -InstanceID "Contoso:Feature:2"

This command enables a feature by using the instance ID to identify it. The command includes a CimSession, similar to the first example.
