Examples

Example 1: Enable a ports by using a device IDthe pipelinesa device ID

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 enables ports for the device that has the ID Ethernet17 by using the $Session object.

PS C:\>$Session = New-CimSession -ComputerName "NetworkSwitch08"
PS C:\> Enable-NetworkSwitchEthernetPort -DeviceID "Ethernet17" -CimSession $Session 

Example 2: Enable a port by using a port number

This command enables port 21. The command includes a CimSession, similar to the first example.

PS C:\>Enable-NetworkSwitchEthernetPort -Port 21 -CimSession $Session
