Playing around with VM´s on Laptop and Virtual switches   Leave a comment

I have a lot of VMs on my laptop, and i need to change the switch on these machines sometimes, since I’m moving around i need to be able to change the switch that they are connected to. This is time consuming and not to mention booooring so lets look @ powershell and how this can help me.
