Set-SCVMHostGroup

Changes the properties of a host group in VMM.

Syntax

Set-SCVMHostGroup [-VMHostGroup] <HostGroup> [-Description <String>] [-EnableUnencryptedFileTransfer <Boolean>]
 [-InheritNetworkSettings <Boolean>] [-JobGroup <Guid>] [-JobVariable <String>] [-Name <String>]
 [-PROTipID <Guid>] [-RunAsynchronously] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-SCVMHostGroup cmdlet changes one or more properties of a host group that contains hosts managed by Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). Properties that you can change include settings for name, description, and whether network settings are inherited from parent host groups.

Examples

Example 1: Change the inherit network settings property for an existing host group

PS C:\> $VMHostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup -Name "VMHostGroup01"
PS C:\> Set-SCVMHostGroup -VMHostGroup $VMHostGroup -InheritNetworkSettings $False

The first command gets the host group named HostGroup01 and stores it in the $VMHostGroup variable.

The second command changes the value of the inherit network settings to false for the host group stored in $VMHostGroup.

Parameters

-Description

Specifies a description for the host group.

Type:String
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-EnableUnencryptedFileTransfer

Indicates, when set to $True, that network file transfers do not require encryption. Allowing unencrypted network file transfers can improve performance if neither the source host nor the destination host requires encryption.

Use this parameter to:

- Enable unencrypted file transfers into, or out of, the library.

  • Enable unencrypted file transfers into, out of, or within a host group.

Type:Boolean
Aliases:AllowUnencryptedTransfers
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InheritNetworkSettings

Specifies, when set to $True, that the network settings for a host group will have the same values as those specified for its parent.

Type:Boolean
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-JobGroup

Specifies an identifier for a series of commands that will run as a set just before the final command that includes the same job group identifier runs.

Type:Guid
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-JobVariable

Specifies that job progress is tracked and stored in the variable named by this parameter.

Type:String
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies the name of a VMM object.

Type:String
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PROTipID

Specifies the ID of the Performance and Resource Optimization tip (PRO tip) that triggered this action. This parameter lets you audit PRO tips.

Type:Guid
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RunAsynchronously

Indicates that the job runs asynchronously so that control returns to the command shell immediately.

Type:SwitchParameter
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMHostGroup

Specifies a virtual machine host group object.

Type:HostGroup
Required:True
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Outputs

HostGroup

This cmdlet returns a **HostGroup** object.

Notes

* Requires a VMM host group object, which can be retrieved by using the **Get-SCVMHostGroup** cmdlet.
