Parameters

-AllowUnencryptedTransfer

Examples

1. Import a library resource by an administrator or delegated administrator.

This command imports the virtual hard disk named VHD01.vhdd stored in the folder named C:\AdminFolder into the specified library path. If a resource with that name already exists in that library path, this command will overwrite those files.


PS C:\> Import-SCLibraryPhysicalResource -SourcePath "C:\AdminFolder\VHD01.vhd" -SharePath "\\VMMLibraryServer\MSSCVMMLibrary\ImportedLibraryResources" -OverwriteExistingFiles

2. Import a library resource by a self-service user by specifing a path under the default user role data path in the VMM library.

This command imports the virtual hard disk named VHD01 from the folder named C:\SSFolder to the SSUserSubFolder\Folder01 folder stored under the default user role data path for the self-service user role of which the logged on user is a member.


PS C:\> Import-SCLibraryPhysicalResource -SourcePath "C:\SSFolder\VHD01.vhd" -SharePath "\\<DefaultUserRoleDataPath>\SSUserSubfolder\Folder01"

3. Import a library resource by a self-service user to the default user role data path in the VMM library.

This command imports the file named VHD01.vhd stored in C:\SSFolder to the default user role data path for the self-service user role of which the logged on user is a member.


PS C:\> Import-SCLibraryPhysicalResource -SourcePath "C:\SSFolder\VHD01.vhd"
