We have recently purchased a VxRail system for testing purposes.
I am trying to control IOPS and Network speed VIA PowerCLI.
We are on vsphere 6.7 but will be upgrading to 7.0 this week.
So far I have found the following commands googling but I get errors when I try to use them.
First is the IOPS control
Get-VM ‘vm_name’ | Get-VMResourceConfiguration | Set-VMResourceconfiguration -configuration DiskResourceConfiguration -DiskLimitIOPerSecond <Value>
Set <Value> to what you want the IOPS to be.
when I try this I get the following
Set-VMResourceConfiguration : Cannot bind parameter ‘Configuration’. Cannot convert the “DiskResourceConfiguration” value of type “System.String” to
At line:1 char:94
+ … esourceconfiguration -configuration DiskResourceConfiguration -DiskLi …
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [Set-VMResourceConfiguration], ParameterBindingException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : CannotConvertArgumentNoMessage,VMware.VimAutomation.ViCore.Cmdlets.Commands.SetVMResourceConfiguration
The second is network speed. We are trying to control latency in the network without using 3rd party tools.
Here is the command for this.
Set-VMNetworkAdapter -VMName IOPSnNic -MaximumBandwidth 5000000
and here is the error
Set-VMNetworkAdapter : The term ‘Set-VMNetworkAdapter’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check
the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

+ Set-VMNetworkAdapter -VMName IOPSnNic -MaximumBandwidth 5000000
+ CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (Set-VMNetworkAdapter:String) , CommandNotFoundException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException
If these are not the correct commands can you please send me the proper command and syntax?
Thanks in advance
