Syntax

Parameter Set: Products
Export-VamtData [-Products] <Product[]> [-OutputFile] <String> [[-IncludeProductKeys]] [[-IncludeSensitiveInfo]] [-DbCommandTimeout <Int32> ] [-DbConnectionString <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Export-VamtData cmdlet exports specified product data and product-key data from a Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT) database to a portable cilx file. You can use this .cilx file to move data from one VAMT instance to another, to store data for backup purposes, or to facilitate proxy activation. By default, the export does not include product-key data and personally identifiable information (PII).

Parameters

-DbCommandTimeout<Int32>

Indicates how long VAMT waits for a response from the database before timing out. The default value is 30 seconds. You can use the DbCommandTimeout parameter to change the timeout value.

-DbConnectionString<String>

Specifies the database that the product and the product key are exported from. If no database connection string is provided, VAMT attempts to use the database that the VAMT user console used on the local computer. If VAMT does not find a database, it returns an error. You can find the connection string in the VAMT UI in the Preferences dialog box. On the menu bar, click View, and then click Preferences to open the Volume Activation Management Tool Preferences dialog box. The connection string is in the Database Settings section under Current connection string.
