SYNOPSIS

Checks server prerequisites and validates parameters for an MBAM database.

SYNTAX

ParameterSetCompliance

Test-MbamDatabase [-Detailed] -ConnectionString <String> [-DatabaseName <String>] -AccessAccount <String>
 -ReportAccount <String> [-ComplianceAndAudit] [<CommonParameters>]

ParameterSetRecovery

Test-MbamDatabase [-Detailed] -ConnectionString <String> [-DatabaseName <String>] -AccessAccount <String>
 [-Recovery] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Test-MbamDatabase cmdlet checks the server prerequisites and validates the parameters for the Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) database feature.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Check prerequisites and validate parameters for the Compliance and Audit Database

PS C:\> Test-MbamDatabase -ComplianceAndAudit -ConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=MyDatabaseServer" -AccessAccount "MyDomain\MyAccessAccount" -ReportAccount "MyDomain\MyReportAccount" -DatabaseName "MyComplianceDatabaseName"

This command checks the prerequisites and validates the parameters to enable the Compliance and Audit Database on MyDatabaseServer. The name of the database is MyComplianceDatabaseName. The domain account MyAccessAccount has read/write permission to the database, and MyReportAccount has read-only permission to the database for reporting purposes. The command uses the current Windows account credentials for authentication.

Example 2: Check prerequisites and validate parameters for the Recovery Database

PS C:\> Test-MbamDatabase -Recovery -ConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=MyDatabaseServer" -AccessAccount "MyDomain\MyAccessAccount" -DatabaseName "MyRecoveryDatabaseName"

This command checks the prerequisites and validates the parameters to enable the Recovery Database on MyRecoveryDatabaseServer. The name of the database is MyRecoveryDatabaseName. The domain account MyAccessAccount has read/write permission to the database. The command uses the current Windows account credentials for authentication.

Example 3: Check prerequisites and validate parameters with detailed output

PS C:\> Test-MbamDatabase -ComplianceAndAudit -ConnectionString "Integrated Security=SSPI;Data Source=MyDatabaseServer" -AccessAccount "MyDomain\MyAccessAccount" -ReportAccount "MyDomain\MyReportAccount" -DatabaseName "MyComplianceDatabaseName" -Detailed


ID                              Type  Message

This command checks the prerequisites and validates the parameters to enable the Compliance and Audit Database on MyDatabaseServer with detailed output.
