Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPDeletedSitePipeBind

Specifies the identity of the site collection to be moved. For example, http://servername/sites/sitename.

DestinationDatabase

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPContentDatabasePipeBind

Specifies the content database that the site collection should be moved to. For example, ContentDB2.

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

ContentDatabase

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPContentDatabasePipeBind

Specifies the SQL Server content database where the site collection data will be stored. If no content database is specified, the content database with the greatest unused site collection capacity and whose database status is ready will be used.

RbsProviderMapping

Optional

System.Collections.Hashtable

Used to move a Remote BLOB Storage (RBS)-enabled site collection from one RBS-enabled content database to another RBS-enabled content database without moving the underlying Binary Large Object (BLOB) content. If the content database has more than one RBS provider associated with it, you must specify all providers. The same providers must be enabled on the target content database and the source content database.

WebApplication

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPWebApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the URL, GUID, or name of the Web application from which to list sites.

The type must be a valid URL in the form http://server_name; a valid GUID, for example, 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; or the Web application name, for example, WebApplication1212.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

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
