Gets virtual network objects configured on a VMM host.

Syntax

Get-SCVirtualNetwork [[-Name] <String>] -ID <Guid> [<CommonParameters>]
Get-SCVirtualNetwork [[-Name] <String>] -VMHost <Host> [<CommonParameters>]
Get-SCVirtualNetwork [[-Name] <String>] -VMHostCluster <HostCluster> [<CommonParameters>]
Get-SCVirtualNetwork [[-Name] <String>] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-SCVirtualNetwork cmdlet gets one or more virtual network objects configured on a host managed by Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).

For information about virtual networks in VMM, type Get-Help New-SCVirtualNetwork -Detailed.

Examples

Example 1: Get all virtual networks in the VMM database

PS C:\> $VirtualNetworks = Get-SCVirtualNetwork 
PS C:\> $VirtualNetworks | Format-List Name,VMHost,VMHostNetworkadapters

The first command gets all virtual network objects on all hosts managed by VMM and stores the virtual network objects in $VirtualNetworks.

The second command displays a subset of information about each virtual network object in $VirtualNetworks: the name of each virtual network, the physical host on which each virtual network is configured, and the physical network adapters configured on the host for each virtual network.

Example 2: Get all virtual networks on a specific host

PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01.Contoso.com" 
PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualNetwork -VMHost $VMHost

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

The second command gets all virtual network objects on VMHost01 and displays information about each virtual network.

Example 3: Get a virtual network by name from a specific host

PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost02.Contoso.com" 
PS C:\> $VN = Get-SCVirtualNetwork -VMHost $VMHost -Name "InternalVNet01"
PS C:\> $VN

The first command gets the host object named VMHost02 and stores the object in the $VMHost variable.

The second command gets the virtual network object named InternalVNet01 from VMHost02 and stores the object in the $VN variable.

The last command displays information about the virtual network stored in $VN to the user.
