UCS to Windows NIC Rename PowerShell Script

Version 6

    This UCS PowerShell script allows to to connect to a UCS domain and then specify the name or IP address of a server and have all the NICs on the server renamed to match the names in the UCS vNIC Template.

     

    This script requires WMI access to the Windows machine and admin level login rights to the server.

     

    The benefit of this is that you can quickly identify NICs to assign functions such as Hyper-V vSwitches, Clustering, Live Migrations, etc.

     

    It only takes a few seconds for it to make the changes.
