      Hey there Kasun,

      Get-Help or TechNet would be a good place to start. It’ll give you a synopsis of what the cmdlet does, and even some examples in which you would use the cmdlet.

      New-NetSwitchTeam

      NewNetLbfoTeam
      https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj130847.aspx

      Hope this helps!

      Kasun, can you tell us what are you trying to do? or is this just academic interest?

      New-NetLbfoTeam creates a NIC team. This is something you can do separate and apart from the Hyper-V role. So, a physical or virtual computer can have a NIC team (or more) that provide features like bandwidth aggregation, network load balancing, and network fault tolerance. This is much more commonly used than New-NetSwitchTeam

      New-NetSwitchTeam creates a switch team. This is something you can create on a physical computer (only) that has the Hyper-V role installed. It is controlled by a Hyper-V extensible switch forwarding extension. This is rarely used.

      So, if you’re trying to do NIC teaming you should use New-NetLbfoTeam
