vCloud Set-OrgNetwork


i am experiencing an issue which I find a bit odd and perhaps it is a bug?

Connected to a vCloud 8.20 instance.

So get-OrgNetwork is deprecated, but the same error occurs with get-OrgVdcNetwork.

PS C:\> $network = Get-OrgNetwork -name "test"

WARNING: The command 'Get-OrgNetwork' is obsolete. Get-OrgNetwork cmdlet is deprecated. Use Get-OrgVdcNetwork cmdlet instead.

PS C:\>

PS C:\> Set-OrgNetwork -OrgNetwork $network -PrimaryDns "" -SecondaryDns ""

Set-OrgNetwork : 24.01.2018 14:31:39    Set-OrgNetwork          Unable to cast object of type 'VMware.VimAutomation.Cloud.Views.OrgVdcNetwork' to type 'VMware.VimAutomation.Cloud.Views.OrgNetwork'.

is get-orgnetwork using get-orgvdcnetwork here behind the scene?

Any feedback is appreciated ! Smiley Happy

the Get-OrgVdcNetwork Cmdlet itself still works fine.

C:\> Get-OrgVdcNetwork -Name Test | Select-Object Name, DefaultGateway, Description

Name DefaultGateway Description

---- -------------- -----------


But I run into the same Issue with Set-OrgNetwork.

Are you connected as a OrgAdmin or System Admin?

Reference Guide for Set-OrgNetwork:

This cmdlet modifies the configuration of the specified organization network. Note: This cmdlet is only available to Provider Administrators.

Online Documentation - Cmdlet Reference - VMware {code}

I Recommend using this alternate way to modify OrgVdcNetworks:

C:\> $OrgNetView = Get-OrgVdcNetwork -Name Test |  Get-CIView

C:\> $OrgNetView.Description = "Test Network"

C:\> $OrgNetView.UpdateServerData()

C:\> Get-OrgVdcNetwork -Name Test | Select-Object Name, DefaultGateway, Description

Name DefaultGateway Description

---- -------------- -----------

Test   Test Network
