Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to add a virtual network adapter to a network packet capture session?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Add-NetEventVmNetworkAdapter cmdlet and specify the name of the adapter. In the following example, I create a net event session, add a capture provider, and then specify the virtual network adapter:

PS C:\>New-NetEventSession -Name "NESession01"

PS C:\> Add-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider -SessionName "NESession01"

PS C:\> Add-NetEventVMNetworkAdapter -Name "LargeGuid"
