DESCRIPTION

Creates a network adapter definition roughly interpreted as a NIC. This NIC can then be connected to a lab machine when defining the machine using Add-LabMachineDefinition

EXAMPLES

Example 1

$netAdapter = @()
$netAdapter += New-LabNetworkAdapterDefinition -VirtualSwitch $labName -Ipv4Address 192.168.30.50
$netAdapter += New-LabNetworkAdapterDefinition -VirtualSwitch 'Default Switch' -UseDhcp
Add-LabMachineDefinition -Name POSHFS1 -Memory 512MB -Roles FileServer, Routing -NetworkAdapter $netAdapter

In order to create a machine capable of routing, you can assign two network adapter definitions to it
