The Set-NetworkSwitchPortProperty cmdlet sets the port properties for a network switch. This cmdlet can modify any property. If you run this cmdlet, you must specify at
least one property to change. Otherwise, the command returns an error.







Example 1: Set properties for a port

PS C:\>$Session = New-CimSession -ComputerName "NetworkSwitch08"
PS C:\> $PortSpeed = 1
PS C:\> $Description = "Port on management device 02."
PS C:\> Set-NetworkSwitchPortProperty -CimSession $Session -Property @{Speed = $portSpeed; Description = $Description }

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

The second and third commands assign values to the $PortSpeed variable and the $Description variable. These are the values of the key/value pairs.

The final command sets a properties by using the $Session object. The command uses standard syntax to create a hash table that contains the key/value pairs as the value of
the Property parameter.
