New-CMComputerAssociation

Updated: September 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1

New-CMComputerAssociation

Creates an association between two computers in Configuration Manager.

Syntax

Parameter Set: NewComputerAssociation
New-CMComputerAssociation -DestinationComputer <String> -SourceComputer <String> [-MigrationBehavior <MigrationBehavior> {CaptureAllUserAccountsAndRestoreSpecifiedAccounts | CaptureAndRestoreAllUserAccounts | CaptureAndRestoreSpecifiedUserAccounts} ] [-MigrationUserName <String[]> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-CMComputerAssociation cmdlet creates an association between two computers to use for migration. Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager can migrate user state and settings from an existing computer to a different computer as part of operating system deployment. In the course of migration, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager saves accounts created on the source computer and creates those user accounts on the destination computer.

To create an association, specify the source computer, the destination computer, and at least one user name created on the source computer to be migrated. You can also specify whether the migration includes other user names from the source computer.

Parameters

-DestinationComputer<String>

Specifies the name of a destination computer.

-MigrationBehavior<MigrationBehavior>

Specifies how Configuration Manager treats user accounts created on the source computer. When you create a computer association, specify user accounts created on the source computer by using the MigrationUserName parameter. The computer association can specify that the migration process creates some or all of those accounts on the destination computer.

The acceptable values for this parameter are:

-- CaptureAllUserAccountsAndRestoreSpecifiedAccounts. Saves all accounts created on the source computer, but creates only the specified accounts on the destination computer.
-- CaptureAndRestoreAllUserAccounts. Saves all accounts created on the source computer, and creates them on the destination computer.
-- CaptureAndRestoreSpecifiedUserAccounts. Saves only the specified accounts from the source computer, and creates those accounts on the destination computer.

If you do not specify a migration behavior, the migration uses CaptureAndRestoreAllUserAccounts.
