Networking Classes

The networking architecture for virtualization models the physical networking architecture. It uses standard networking objects such as switches, switch ports, and network adapters.

The following are virtualization WMI classes related to networking.

In this section

TopicDescription

Msvm_ActiveConnection

Connects a switch port to the LAN endpoint to which the port is connected.

Msvm_BindsTo

An association that establishes a service access point (SAP) as a requester of protocol services from a protocol endpoint.

Msvm_DeviceSAPImplementation

An association between a service access point (SAP) and how it is implemented.

Msvm_DynamicForwardingEntry

Represents an entry in the forwarding (filtering) database that is associated with the transparent bridging service.

Msvm_EmulatedEthernetPort

Represents an emulated Ethernet adapter.

Msvm_EmulatedEthernetPortSettingData

Represents the configured state of an emulated Ethernet adapter.

Msvm_ExternalEthernetPort

Represents an external Ethernet port (network adapter).

Msvm_GlobalEthernetPortSAPImplementation

An association that connects a LAN endpoint to a global Ethernet port (either an external or internal Ethernet port).

Msvm_HostedAccessPoint

An association that connects a virtual switch service to a switch port inside of the Microsoft Hyper-V platform.

Msvm_HostedSwitchService

An association that connects a virtual switch service to transparent bridging service.

Msvm_InternalEthernetPort

Represents an internal Ethernet port (network adapter).

Msvm_NetworkElementSettingData

An association that connects a computer system to a LAN endpoint inside of Hyper-V.

Msvm_NetworkJob

Represents a network operation job created by the Network VSP WMI management service.

Msvm_SwitchLANEndpoint

Represents the logical connection point for a network adapter.

Msvm_SwitchPort

Represents a port on the switch.

Msvm_SwitchPortDynamicForwarding

Connects a switch port to a dynamic forward entry (learned MAC address).

Msvm_SyntheticEthernetPort

Represents a synthetic Ethernet adapter.

Msvm_SyntheticEthernetPortSettingData

Represents the configured state of a synthetic Ethernet adapter.

Msvm_TransparentBridgingDynamicForwarding

Connects a transparent bridging service to a dynamic forward entry (learned MAC address).

Msvm_TransparentBridgingService

Serves as a placeholder for the service inside the switch that learns MAC addresses and serves as a bridge between the Msvm_VirtualSwitch and Msvm_DynamicForwardingEntry classes.

Msvm_VirtualSwitch

Represents a virtual switch.

Msvm_VirtualSwitchManagementService

Controls the definition, modification, and destruction of global networking resources such as virtual switches, switch ports, and internal Ethernet ports.

Msvm_VLANEndpoint

Represents the VLAN endpoint of a switch port.

Msvm_VLANEndpointSettingData

Represents the settings for a VLAN endpoint of a switch port.

Msvm_VmLANEndpoint

Represents the logical connection point for a network adapter.
