The Add-NetEventVmNetworkAdapter cmdlet adds a network adapter of a virtual machine as a filter on a Remote Packet Capture provider. Specify the name of the virtual network
adapter. The protocol stack uses multiple layers to transmit, receive, and process network traffic as packets. The provider logs network traffic as Event Tracing for Windows
(ETW) events.

Use this cmdlet multiple times to add multiple adapters. To see which virtual adapters belong to the provider, use the Get-NetEventVmNetworkAdapter cmdlet.

Example 1: Add a virtual network adapter to the provider

PS C:\>New-NetEventSession -Name "NESession01"
PS C:\> Add-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider -SessionName "NESession01"
PS C:\> Add-NetEventVMNetworkAdapter -Name "LargeGuid"

This example adds a virtual network adapter as a filter on the Remote Packet Capture provider for a network session. After you complete these commands to configure the
network session, you can start and stop the event and packet capture for the network session by using the Start-NetEventSession and Stop-NetEventSession cmdlets.

The first command uses the New-NetEventSession cmdlet to create a network session named NESession01.

The second command uses the Add-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider cmdlet to add a Remote Packet Capture provider for the session named NESession01.

The third command adds a virtual network adapter named LargeGuid as a filter on the Remote Packet Capture provider.
