Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPContentDatabasePipeBind

Specifies the content database to update.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a SharePoint content database (for example, SPContentDB1); or an instance of a valid SPContentDatabase 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.

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

MaxSiteCount

Optional

System.Int32

Specifies the maximum number of site collections that this database can host.

The type must be a positive integer. Set to $null to clear this value.

Status

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPObjectStatus

Specifies the status of the SQL Server database. Set this parameter to Ready to make the database available to host new sites. Set this parameter to Offline to make the database unavailable to host new sites.

The type must be either of the following: Ready or Offline

WarningSiteCount

Optional

System.Int32

Specifies the number of site collections 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. Set to $null to clear this value.

WhatIf

Optional

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
