Examples

Example 1: Update a specified library share

The first command gets the library share object named AllVHDs on LibraryServer01 from the VMM library on VMMServer01, and then stores the object in the $LibShare variable.

The second command updates the state and metadata information for all library objects in the share stored in $LibShare, and then it adds any new library objects found in the share to the VMM library.


PS C:\> $LibShare = Get-SCLibraryShare -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" -and $_.Name -eq "AllVHDs" }
PS C:\> Read-SCLibraryShare -LibraryShare $LibShare

Example 2: Update multiple library shares

The first command gets the library share objects on LibraryServer01 with the string vhd in their names, and then stores the objects in the $LibShares variable.

The second command updates the information for all library shares stored in $LibShares, and then it adds any new library objects found in these shares to the VMM library.


PS C:\> $LibShares = Get-SCLibraryShare -VMMServer "VMMServer1.Contoso.com" | where { $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" -and $_.Name -match "vhd" }
PS C:\> $LibShares | Read-SCLibraryShare

Example 3: Update a specific subdirectory on a library share

The first command gets the library share object named AllVHDs on LibraryServer01 from the VMM library on VMMServer01, and then stores the object in the $LibShare variable.

The second command updates the state and metadata information for all library objects in the specified subdirectory on the library share that is stored in $LibShare, and then it adds any new library objects found in the share to the VMM library.


PS C:\> $LibShare = Get-SCLibraryShare -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" -and $_.Name -eq "AllVHDs" }
PS C:\> Read-SCLibraryShare -LibraryShare $LibShare -Path "Production\WebFrontEnd"
