This command creates a server pool network policy. A server pool network policy is the object that controls DPM/DRS behavior of the virtual machines associated with the server pool based on network bandwidth usage.


The following table shows the available options for this command.



policyEnable= { Yes | No }

Set whether to enable the policy set in the policyMode option of the create ServerPool or edit ServerPool command.


The percentage (%) of network bandwidth the policy uses to move virtual machines. value can be an integer between 0 and 100.


The name or ID of the network associated with the policy, which is used to administer the policy for the server pool.


A name to identify the server pool network policy.


Optional description for the server pool network policy. value is a maximum of 4,000 characters.


Any create command only creates a single instance of an object, and therefore only accepts a single object instance as an attribute. Providing more than one object of the same attribute type as a parameter always results in the last attribute value taking precedence.
