If you've opened the VMM 2012 SP1 PowerShell console and performed a command to get help on cmdlets, you may be in for a surprise. Examples are not included out of the box, and there were tons of great examples in VMM 2008 R2. The syntax below should, but does not, output all help including example use.
get-help <cmdlet-name> -full
There is a simple way of resolving this issue. Open the ‘Virtual Machine Manager Command Shell’ located in Start. Open this elevated as administrator. Now type the following and updated help will be available.
When this is done you can use a non-elevated VMM PowerShell and updated help will be available.
There is a new post on the Download Center of networking in Virtual Machine Manager. It’s a bit intimidating posting this official poster right after my own attempts (see my previous post), but they all offer different ways of depicting the same abstract ideas. Pull down a copy of the post and use it for reference when you just can’t seem to put the pieces together. Enjoy!
