Description

The Add-SCComputerTierTemplate cmdlet adds a computer tier template to a service template. A computer tier template contains a virtual machine template that is used to create a virtual machine.

For information about service templates, type Get-Help New-SCServiceTemplate -Detailed. For more information about virtual machine templates, type Get-Help New-SCVMTemplate -Detailed.

Examples

Example 1: Add a computer tier template to a service template

PS C:\> $WebTemplate = Get-SCVMTemplate | Where-Object { $_.Name -Eq "WebTemplate01" }
PS C:\> $ServiceTemplate = Get-SCServiceTemplate -Name "ServiceTemplate01"
PS C:\> Add-SCComputerTierTemplate -ServiceTemplate $ServiceTemplate -VMTemplate $WebTemplate -Name "Web Tier" -DefaultInstanceCount 3 -InstanceMinimumCount 1 -InstanceMaximumCount 5 -DeploymentOrder 1 -ServicingOrder 1 -NumberOfUpgradeDomains 1

The first command gets the virtual machine template object named WebTemplate01 and stores the object in the $WebTemplate variable.

The second command gets the service template object named ServiceTemplate01 and stores the object in the $ServiceTemplate variable.

The last command adds a computer tier template to the service template stored in $ServiceTemplate.
