vSwitch in Promiscuous Mode




I have a Server 2019 Hyper-V Host and need to setup one of the vSwtiches for port mirroring in Promiscuous Mode. I have done this in the past using the below PS but am getting an error on this Host (previous hosts were running 2012R2).


Here is what I am typing into PS:



PS C:\Windows\system32> $a = Get-VMSystemSwitchExtensionPortFeature -FeatureId 776e0ba7-94a1-41c8-8f28-951f524251b5

PS C:\Windows\system32> $a.SettingData.MonitorMode = 2

PS C:\Windows\system32> Add-VMSwitchExtensionPortFeature -ExternalPort –SwitchName NAMEOFMYSWITCH -VMSwitchExtensionFeature $a



I get the below error:



Add-VMSwitchExtensionPortFeature : Failed while modifying virtual Ethernet switch connection settings.

At line:1 char:1

+ Add-VMSwitchExtensionPortFeature -ExternalPort –SwitchName NAMEOFMYSWITCH ...

+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Add-VMSwitchExtensionPortFeature], VirtualizationException

+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : OperationFailed,Microsoft.HyperV.PowerShell.Commands.AddVMSwitchExtensionPortFeature



I've no idea what to do next, does anyone have any suggestions?


Many thanks
