VD Blocked Policy Category

Cmdlets are usually implemented around resource operations. The four basic operations are CREATE, READ, UPDATE and DELETE. This set of operations is known as CRUD. Most of the cmdlets support CRUD which are respectively cmdlets that start with the New/Get/Set/Remove cmdlet verbs but they also may have additional operations

Step 1: Retrieve a object by running a Get command

You can READ objects by using Get-VDBlockedPolicy cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves the blocking policy of a vSphere distributed switch named "MyVDSwitch".

Get-VDSwitch "MyVDSwitch" | Get-VDBlockedPolicy

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

You can UPDATE objects by using Set-VDBlockedPolicy cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves all active distributed ports and updates their blocking policy to stop packet forwarding through them.

Get-VDPort -VDSwitch "MyVDSwitch" -ActiveOnly | Get-VDBlockedPolicy | Set-VDBlockedPolicy -Blocked
