Configure VM Network settings from the host using Hyper-V 2016

Today I used Ravikanth script for configuring an VM´s NIC settings from the host and can confirm that it works nicely also on a Hyper-V Host with 2016 TP4 and a full-GUI VM and also with VM´s running Nanoserver 🙂

There is a cmdlet in the Hyper-V PowerShell module that is named: Set-VMNetworkAdapterFailoverConfiguration although that configures only the nic for the Hyper-V replicated VM and cannot be used on a ordinary vm. So using the function from Ravi I set the VM´s configuration using the Hyper-V WMI virtualization namespace.

And trying to set it on a Nano server also works nicely
