I have a scenario that involves building out a ton of virtual machines in Hyper-V, I cannot use SCVMM and must use a scripted method to create these VMs. I have a CSV with all required information filled out so my Create-VM code works and creates the VMs with no problem.
My issue is, I would like to assign a static MAC address to the VM NICs during creation. This will help me setup DHCP IP reservations as per my lab requirements. Once I create the VM, I do this command:
Set-VMNetworkAdapterVlan -VMName $VMName -Access -ComputerName $VMHost -VlanId $VLANID | Get-VMNetworkAdapter | Set-VMNetworkAdapter -StaticMacAddress $Config.intMAC
At this time I have a NIC already added to this VM and in theory it should set the MAC address to whatever $Config.intMAC holds but it does not, the radio box is still selected for dynamic MAC address and the static value remains unselected and all 0's.
How would I assign the MAC pro-grammatically?
