Description

The Set-SCCustomPlacementRule cmdlet modifies an existing custom placement rule in the placement configuration for a host group.

Examples

Example 1: Modify an existing custom placement rule in the placement configuration for a host group

PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup "HostGroup01"
PS C:\> $PlacementConfig = Get-SCPlacementConfiguration -VMHostGroup $HostGroup
PS C:\> $CPRule = Get-SCCustomPlacementRule -PlacementConfiguration $PlacementConfig | where {$_.CustomPropertyName -eq "Charge Code"}
PS C:\> Set-SCCustomPlacementRule -MustMatch -CustomPlacementRule $CPRule

The first command gets the host group object named HostGroup01 and stores the object in the $HostGroup variable.

The second command gets the placement configuration object for the host group stored in $HostGroup and places the object in the $PlacementConfig variable.

The third command gets the custom placement rule object named Charge Code and stores the object in the $CPRule variable.

The last command modifes the custom placement rule for custom property Charge Code to be a Must Match rule.
