New-HCXComputeProfile

This cmdlet creates an HCX Compute Profile. You can use the HCXInterconnectTask output to retrieve task details by running the Get-HCXJob cmdlet. You can use the Compute Profile to create a Service Mesh.

Parameters

Required Parameter Name Type Position Features Description
required
Datastore
HCXApplianceDatastore[] named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies the storage resource for deploying the HCX Interconnect appliances.
    required
    DeploymentResource
    HCXApplianceCompute[] named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies the compute resource for deploying the HCX Interconnect appliances.
    required
    ManagementNetworkProfile
    HCXNetworkProfile named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies the Network Profile by which you can reach the management interface of the vCenter Server system and the ESXi hosts.
    required
    Name
    String named Specifies the name of the HCX Compute Profile.
    required
    Service
    InterconnectServiceType[] named Specifies the HCX services that you want to enable. Licenses must be enabled for the RAV and OSAssistedMigration services to work.
    required
    ServiceCluster
    HCXApplianceCompute[] named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies one or more clusters for which you want to enable the selected HCX services.
    optional
    DistributedSwitch
    HCXApplianceDVS[] named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies the Distributed Virtual Switches that you want to use for the HCX Network Extension services.
    optional
    GuestNetworkProfile
    HCXNetworkProfile named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies the Network Profile with a network that has access to the sentinel workloads.
    optional
    Server
    HcxServer[] named Specifies the HCX Server systems on which you want to run the cmdlet. If no value is provided or $null value is passed to this parameter, the command runs on the default servers. For more information about default servers, see the description of the Connect-HCXServer cmdlet.
    optional
    UplinkNetworkProfile
    HCXNetworkProfile[] named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies one or more network profiles in such a way that one of the following is true: 1. The Interconnect appliances on the remote site can be reached by the network. 2. The remote site appliances can reach the local Interconnect Appliances by the network. If you have point-to-point networks such as Direct Connect which are not shared across multiple sites, you can skip this, since compute profiles are shared with multiple sites. In such cases, Uplink network profiles can be overridden and specified during the creation of the Interconnect Service Mesh.
    optional
    vMotionNetworkProfile
    HCXNetworkProfile named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies the Network Profile for the vMotion network for HCX Appliances.
    optional
    vSphereReplicationNetworkProfile
    HCXNetworkProfile named
  • pipeline
  • Specifies a Network Profile by which you can reach the vSphere Replication interface of the ESXi hosts.

    Output

    VMware.VimAutomation.Hcx.Types.V1.HCXInterconnectTask
