Returns the search manager service.

Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryAndSiteSettingsService [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]



Parameter Required Type Description




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.

Detailed Description

The Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryAndSiteSettingsService cmdlet returns a manager service. A manager service is the endpoint for the search service application to process queries and site administration requests from the search service application proxy.
