Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

SearchServiceInstance

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.SearchServiceInstancePipeBind

SearchServiceInstance of the server from where the SearchHostController object is returned.

AssignmentCollection

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPAssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

noteNote:

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Force the change of the primary SearcHostController. No confirmation messages are asked, even if user tries to set primary to a SearchHostController not running the latest version of the repository.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Displays a message that describes the effect of the command instead of executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

Detailed Description

This cmdlet sets the primary SearchHostController for the farm to the defined SearchHostController.

The SearchHostController is related to the SearchServiceInstance, where the SearchHostController manages the search components that run on a server, and maintains a local repository for linguistic dictionaries. The search components retrieve the linguistic dictionaries from the PrimaryHostController.
