Creates a MAC address pool.

Syntax

New-SCMACAddressPool
   [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>]
   -Name <String>
   [-Description <String>]
   -MACAddressRangeStart <String>
   -MACAddressRangeEnd <String>
   -VMHostGroup <HostGroup[]>
   [-RunAsynchronously]
   [-PROTipID <Guid>]
   [-JobVariable <String>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-SCMACAddressPool cmdlet creates a Media Access Control (MAC) address pool. A MAC address pool can be associated with one or more Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) host groups.

Examples

Example 1: Create a MAC address pool

PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup | where { $_.Path -eq "All Hosts\HostGroup02\Production" }
PS C:\> New-SCMACAddressPool -Name "MAC Address Pool 01" -VMHostGroup $HostGroup -MACAddressRangeStart "00-1D-D8-B7-1C-00" -MACAddressRangeEnd "00-1D-D8-F4-1F-FF"

The first command gets the host group named Production and stores it in the $HostGroup variable.

The second command creates a MAC address pool named MAC Address Pool 01 with an address range beginning with "00-1D-D8-B7-1C-00" and ending with "00-1D-D8-F4-1F-FF", as delineated by the MACAddressRangeStart and MACAddressRangeEnd parameters. The command also associates the pool with the host group stored in $HostGroup.
