New-SCLogicalSwitch
   -Name <String>
   [-VirtualSwitchExtensions <VirtualSwitchExtension[]>]
   [-Description <String>]
   [-EnableSriov <Boolean>]
   [-SwitchUplinkMode <SwitchUplinkMode>]
   [-MinimumBandwidthMode <BandwidthMode>]
   [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>]
   [-EnablePacketDirect <Boolean>]

Description

The New-SCLogicalSwitch cmdlet creates a logical switch object.

Examples

Example 1: Create a logical switch

PS C:\> $VSwitchExt = Get-SCVirtualSwitchExtension -Name "VirtualSwitchExtension01"
PS C:\> New-SCLogicalSwitch -Name "LogicalSwitch01" -VirtualSwitchExtensions $VSwitchExt -MinimumBandwidthMode Default

The first command gets the virtual switch extension object named VirtualSwitchExtension01 and stores the object in the $VSwitchExt variable.

The second command creates a logical switch named LogicalSwitch01 using VirtualSwitchExtension01.
