I have tried setting VLAN for a net-adapter in Windows Server 2012.

If the adapter is Intel, it says not supported. Set-NetAdapter "Ethernet 2" -vlanid 1200

Output: Set-NetAdapter : Requested operation not supported on adapter 'Ethernet 2'

Incase, if this command works fine, how to bypass the execution prompt for this command. I tried using -confirm:$True, -Force parameters, its not working.

ERROR: Set-NetAdapter : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'Force'

First of all, according to, "Not all network adapters support setting the VLAN ID". In order to debug this issue, you might need to check the network card hardware information and/or your network infrastructure for VLAN support.

Secondly, Set-NetAdapter has no "Force" parameter. You can use -Confirm:$false to bypass execution prompt.

In order to get to the root cause, can you elaborate more on your use case scenario? for example, is your Windows Server 2012 already virtualized?

Thank you.

Hi. Yes, windows is virtualized. Correct, not all network adapters support vlan. But which all do support? I have pasted two net adapter properties I have tested with, one of which supports vlan tagging. Let me know any info required Thanks
