Use the Add-SPServerScaleOutDatabase cmdlet to add an existing scale-out content database to the specified service application by using the ServiceApplication parameter or creates a new scale-out database and adds it to the specified service application.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

DatabaseName

Required

System.String

Specifies the name of the database to add to the specified service application.

ServiceApplication

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPServiceApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the service application of the scale-out databases.

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

DatabaseCredentials

Optional

System.Management.Automation.PSCredential

Specifies the owner’s credentials of the scale-out database to be added to the service application.

DatabaseFailoverServer

Optional

System.String

The name of the failover server for the scale-out database to be added.

DatabaseServer

Optional

System.String

The name of the server hosting the scale-out database to be added. If a value is not provided, the default database server will be used.

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
