Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter
   -ID <Guid>

Description

The Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter cmdlet gets one or more physical network adapter objects on a host managed by Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).

Examples

Example 1: Get all physical network adapters on the specified host

PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01.Contoso.com" 
PS C:\> $HostAdapter = Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter -VMHost $VMHost
PS C:\> $HostAdapter | select -property Name, ConnectionState

The first command gets the host object named VMHost01 and stores the object in the $VMHost variable.

The second command gets all physical network adapter objects from VMHost01 and then stores the objects in the $HostAdapter variable.

The third command displays the name and connection state for each adapter.

Example 2: Get all physical network adapters in the VMM database

PS C:\> Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter | Format-List Name, MacAddress, VMHost, MaxBandwidth

This command gets all physical network adapter objects on all hosts managed by the VMM server and displays each adapter's name, its MAC address, its host name, and its maximum bandwidth.

Example 3: Get a physical network adapter by name from a specific host

PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01.Contoso.com" 
PS C:\> $HostAdapter = Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter -VMHost $VMHost -Name "HostAdapter01"
PS C:\> $HostAdapter | Format-List -property Name,VLANEnabled,VLANMode

The first command gets the host object named VMHost01 and stores the object in the $VMHost variable.

The second command gets the network adapter object named HostAdapter01 from VMHost01 and stores the object in the $HostAdapter variable.

The third command passes the adapter object stored in $HostAdapter to the Format-List cmdlet, which displays the name, whether or not the virtual LAN is enabled, and the current value for the VLAN mode (either Trunk or Access).

Example 4: Get each host network adapter that includes "Broadcom" in its name

PS C:\> Get-SCVMHostNetworkAdapter -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -match "Broadcom" } | Format-List -Property Name,IPAddresses

This command gets host network adapter objects from VMMServer01 that include the string "Broadcom" in their name. and then displays the name and IP addresses for each adapter.
