Publish-BCWebContent

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/26/2017

SYNOPSIS

Creates hashes for web content.

SYNTAX

Publish-BCWebContent [-Path] <String[]> [-UseVersion <UInt32>] [-StageData] [-StagingPath <String>]
 [-ReferenceFile <String>] [-Force] [-Recurse] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob]
 [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Publish-BCWebContent cmdlet creates hashes for web content when content servers are deployed that run Windows Server® 2012 with the Web Services (IIS) server role installed. In addition, the web server must be configured as a BranchCache content server by installing the BranchCache feature.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Hash the contents of a folder

PS C:\> Publish-BCWebContent -Path "D:\inetpub\wwwroot" -Recurse

This command pre-hashes the contents of wwwroot. Hashes are available as soon as requests are made.

Example 2: Hash the contents of a folder for export

PS C:\> Publish-BCWebContent -Path "D:\inetpub\wwwroot" -StageData

This command adds data to a data package that can later be exported and preloaded on a remote hosted cache server.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Force

Forces the command to run without asking for user confirmation.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Path

Specifies the file path or the path of a folder that contains files that this cmdlet hashes.

Type: String[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 1
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Recurse

Indicates that hashes are created for content in subfolders. If you do not specify this parameter, this cmdlet creates hashes only for content in the top folder.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ReferenceFile

Specifies a reference file from a previous run.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-StageData

Indicates that this cmdlet saves data to a staging area for future export using the Export-BCCachePackage cmdlet. If you do not specify this parameter, hashes are generated for data, but the data is not prepared for export.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-StagingPath

Specifies a folder location where this cmdlet stores staging data.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-UseVersion

Specifies the version of the BranchCache hashing scheme to use. If the specified version is 1, the content information is generated according to the scheme used by Windows 7 clients. If the specified version is 2, content information is generated according to the more efficient hashing scheme used by client computers that run operating systems later than Windows® 7.

Type: UInt32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type: SwitchParameter

Aliases: wi

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False
