Start-VEShellClient

Overrides default Virtualization Extensions Service connection settings.

Applies to versions: 8.0, 9.0

Syntax

Start-VEShellClient [-ServerName] <String> [[-ServerPort] <Int32>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

This cmdlet overrides the default behavior of cmdlets that support common connection parameters.

By default, if no connection parameters are passed to a cmdlet, the configuration task will be performed for the Virtualizations Extensions Service on the localhost, with the default 8084 port number and credentials of the user who launched the VEShell console. The Start-VEShellClient cmdlet allows you to override the default server name and port that are used if no connection parameters are specified.

Note

The overridden connection settings are automatically reset to defaults every time you close the VEShell console.

Parameters

-ServerName <String>

Specifies the name of a machine (remote or local) where the Virtualization Extensions Service runs. If the parameter is not specified, the server name will not be overridden.

Acceptable formats for the input value are: server name (such as “localhost” or “.”), IP address (such as “172.15.19.6”) and FQDN (such as “localhost.veeam.local”).
