Detailed Description

The Export-SCTemplate cmdlet exports a template from the System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library to the specified path. You can also export the library objects on which the template is dependent.

Parameters

-AllowUnencryptedTransfer

Indicates that network file transfers do not require encryption. Allowing unencrypted network file transfers can improve performance if neither the source host nor the destination host requires encryption.

Examples

1: Export a service template with all of its settings.

The first command gets the service template object named ServiceTemplate01 and stores the object in the $ServiceTemplate variable.

The second command exports the service template stored in $ServiceTemplate, including all settings, and overwrites existing template export packages that have the same name.


PS C:\> $ServiceTemplate = Get-SCServiceTemplate -Name "ServiceTemplate01"PS C:\> Export-SCTemplate -ServiceTemplate $ServiceTemplate -Path "C:\TemplateExports" -SettingsIncludePrivate -Overwrite

2: Export multiple service templates with all of their settings.

This command uses the Get-SCServiceTemplate cmdlet to get all service template objects. Then, it uses the pipeline operator to send the objects to the to the Export-SCTemplate cmdlet which exports the templates, overwriting any existing files.


PS C:\> Get-SCServiceTemplate | Export-SCTemplate -Path "C:\TemplateExports" -SettingsIncludePrivate -Overwrite

3. Export a service template including its dependent library resources.

The first command gets the service template object named ServiceTemplate01 and stores the object in the $ServiceTemplate variable.

The second command exports ServiceTemplate01 and all of its dependent resources from the VMM library to C:\TempalteExports.


PS C:\> $ServiceTemplate = Get-SCServiceTemplate -Name "ServiceTemplate01"PS C:\> Export-SCTemplate -ServiceTemplate $ServiceTemplate -Path "C:\TemplateExports" -IncludeAllLibraryResources
