I'm afraid that is working as designed.

The Get-VMHostNetworkAdapter cmdlet is written to return a HostVirtualNic object (see the Output section when you do Get-Help -Name Get-VMHostNetworkAdapter -Full).

In this case, Intellisense uses that Output object to determine which properties are present.

Unfortunately, the ManagementTrafficEnabled property is not present on the HostVirtualNic object.

That property and others are present on two types (HostVMKernelVirtualNic, HostConsoleVirtualNic) that extend the HostVirtualNic object.

But Intellisense doesn't know about that, it only uses the type of object defined on Output.
