Set-NetworkSwitchEthernetPortIPAddress

Sets the IP address on a port on a network switch.
Set-NetworkSwitchEthernetPortIPAddress [-InformationAction {SilentlyContinue | Stop | Continue | Inquire | Ignore| Suspend}] [-InformationVariable [<System.String>]] -CimSession* <CimSession> -IpAddress* <String> -PortNumber*<Int32> -SubnetAddress* <String> [<CommonParameters>]
Set-NetworkSwitchEthernetPortIPAddress [-InformationAction {SilentlyContinue | Stop | Continue | Inquire | Ignore| Suspend}] [-InformationVariable [<System.String>]] -CimSession* <CimSession> -IpAddress* <String> -SubnetAddress*<String> [<CommonParameters>]

The Set-NetworkSwitchEthernetPortIPAddress cmdlet sets the IP address of an Ethernet port on a network switch.

Parameters
-CimSession <CimSession>

  • This value is required

Specifies the CimSession that this cmdlet uses to connect to the network switch.

-InformationAction [<System.Management.Automation.ActionPreference>]

Specifies how this cmdlet responds to an information event. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

— SilentlyContinue– Stop– Continue — Inquire — Ignore — Suspend

-InformationVariable [<System.String>]

Specifies a variable in which to store an information event message.

-IpAddress <String>

  • This value is required

Specifies an IP address for the Ethernet port.

-PortNumber <Int32>

  • This value is required

Specifies a port number. This cmdlet sets the IP address on the port that this parameter specifies.

-SubnetAddress <String>

  • This value is required

Specifies a subnet mask for the IP address.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable,OutBuffer, PipelineVariable, and OutVariable.

Inputs

CimInstance[]

You can pipe an array of CimInstance objects that refer to an EthernetPort object.

Outputs

None

This cmdlet does not generate any output.

Examples
  1. Assign an IP address to a port:
    PS C:> $Session = New-CimSession -ComputerName "NetworkSwitch08"
    PS C:>  Set-NetworkSwitchEthernetPortIPAddress -IpAddress "10.4.10.12" -PortNumber 21 -SubnetAddress "255.255.255.248" -CimSession $Session
    

    The first command creates a CimSession for a network switch, and then stores it in the $Session variable. For more information about CimSession objects, type Get-Help New-CimSession.

    The second command assigns an IP address and subnet address to the specified port by using the $Session object.
