Description

The Get-NetworkSwitchVlan cmdlet gets available virtual local area networks (VLANs) for a network switch.

Examples

Example 1: Get all VLANs for a network switch

PS C:\>$Session = New-CimSession -ComputerName "NetworkSwitch08"
PS C:\> Get-NetworkSwitchVlan -CimSession $Session
Caption             Description         Name                InstanceID                       VlanID PSComputerName    
-------             -----------         -----------         ----------                       ------ --------------    
                    Vlan_description    default             Contoso:NetworkVL...                   1 10.19.246.18     
                    Vlan_description    VLAN0002            Contoso:NetworkVL...                   2 10.19.246.18

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 all VLAN for the switch NetworkSwitch08 by using the $Session object.

Example 2: Get a VLAN by using a name

PS C:\>Get-NetworkSwitchVlan -CimSession $Session -Name "VLAN22"
Caption             Description         Name                InstanceID                       VlanID PSComputerName    
-------             -----------         -----------         ----------                       ------ --------------    
                    Vlan_description    VLAN22              Contoso:NetworkVL...                   1 10.19.236.49

This command gets the VLAN named VLAN22. The command includes a CimSession, similar to the first example.
