TFSLabConfig TPCHostGroup Command

Note Note

These commands only work on SCVMM 2012 server, and are not supported on SCVMM 2008 R2 server.

Use the TPCHostGroup command to add or remove a host group from a team project collection, or to modify the Lab Management settings of the host group.

To run these commands, you must be a member of Team Project Collection Administrators group in Team Foundation Server for the collection you specify. In addition, you must be a member of Administrator or Delegated Administrator role in the SCVMM Server from which you are adding the host groups. Furthermore, you must ensure that no other team project collection in any Team Foundation Server is already using the same SCVMM host group.

TfsLabConfig TPCHostGroup 
      /collection:collectionUrl
      [/add 
            /scvmmhostgroup:scvmmHostGroupPath
            /name:name
            [/dnssuffix:dnsSuffixForNetworkIsolation]
            [/autoprovision:{True|False}]]
      [/delete 
            /name:name
            [/noprompt]]
      [/edit 
            /name:hostGroupName
            [/autoprovision:{True|False}]
            [/dnssuffix:dnSuffixForNetworkIsolation]
