Start-VEShellClient

Overrides default Virtualization Extensions Service connection settings.

Applies to versions: 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 8.0

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.

Start-VEShellClient Note:

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