Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource

Exports a library resource form a VMM library share to a local file folder or network share.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource [-Path] <String> -Resource <ItemBase> [-AllowUnencryptedTransfer] [-OverwriteExistingFiles] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource cmdlet exports (copies) a library resource from a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library share to a local file folder or network share.

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

Example 1: Export a specific library resource to a local file folder

The first command gets the virtual hard disk object named VHD01, and then stores the object in the $Resource variable.

The second command exports the resource stored in $Resource to the folder named C:\ExportedLibResources. If the resource had been previously exported to this folder, this command would overwrite any of those files.


PS C:\> $Resource = Get-SCVirtualHardDisk -Name "VHD01.vhd"
PS C:\> Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource -Resource $Resource -Path "C:\ExportedLibResources" -OverwriteExistingFiles

Example 2: Export a library resource to a network share

The first command gets the application package object named WebApp01.zip, and then stores the object in the $Resource variable.

The second command exports the library resource stored in $Resource to the network share named \\FileShare01\LibExports.


PS C:\> $Resource = Get-SCApplicationPackage -Name "WebApp01.zip"
PS C:\> Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource -Resource $Resource -Path "\\FileShare01\LibExports"
