Returns the server or servers in the farm that match the given identity.

Get-SPServer [[-Identity] <SPServerPipeBind>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]

The Get-SPServer cmdlet returns the SPServer object for the given identity (if it exists in the farm). If no parameters are specified, the cmdlet returns all servers in the farm.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPServerPipeBind

Specifies the address of the server to return.

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.
