Parameters

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Name

Required

System.String

Specifies the existing content database to attach to the farm.

The type must be a valid name of a SharePoint content database; for example, SPContentDB1.

WebApplication

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPWebApplicationPipeBind

Attaches the content database to the specified SharePoint Web application.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of SharePoint Web application (for example, MyOfficeApp1); or an instance of a valid SPWebApplication object.

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.

note Note:

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.

AssignNewDatabaseId

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Creates a new database ID automatically when the content database is attached.

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

ClearChangeLog

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Clears any pending changes from the change log in the content database.

DatabaseCredentials

Optional

System.Management.Automation.PSCredential

Specifies the PSCredential object that contains the user name and password to be used for database SQL Authentication.

The type must be a valid PSCredential object.

DatabaseServer

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPServerPipeBind

Specifies the name of the host server for the content database specified in the Name parameter.

The type must be a valid SQL Server host name; for example, SQLServerHost1.

MaxSiteCount

Optional

System.Int32

Specifies the maximum number of Web sites that can use the content database.

The type must be a positive integer.

UpdateUserExperience

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Determines whether the content databases should upgrade to the latest user interface. By default, the user interface will not change during upgrade.

WarningSiteCount

Optional

System.Int32

Specifies the number of sites that can be created before a warning event is generated and the owner of the site collection is notified.

The type must be a positive integer.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter
