Description

The Get-NetworkSwitchEthernetPort cmdlet gets port information for a network switch.

Examples

Example 1: Get all the ports for a device

PS C:\>$Session = New-CimSession -ComputerName "NetworkSwitch08"
PS C:\> Get-NetworkSwitchEthernetPort -CimSession $Session

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 gets the ports for NetworkSwitch08 by using the $Session object.

Example 2: Get a specific port

PS C:\>Get-NetworkSwitchEthernetPort -PortNumber 21 -CimSession $Session
Name            PortNumber DeviceID       FullDuplex    AutoSense     PortType  MaxDataSize
----            ---------- --------       ----------    ---------     --------  -----------
Ethernet17              21 Ethernet17           True        False            0         9214

This command gets port 21. The example shows the console output for the command. The command includes a CimSession, similar to the first example.

Example 3: Get a port with a specified ID

PS C:\>Get-NetworkSwitchEthernetPort -DeviceID "Ethernet17" -CimSession $Session

This command gets the port for the device that has the ID Ethernet17. The command includes a CimSession, similar to the first example.
