Returns a global property or a collection of global properties for the local farm.
The Get-SPFarmConfig cmdlet retrieves global settings for the local farm that are not members of the SPFarm object. This cmdlet creates a new PSCustomObject object from the collection of properties returned from the local farm, and then adds this object to the pipeline. The PSCustomObject object can be read, or modified and passed to the Set-SPFarmConfig cmdlet to change parameter values.
The properties collected in the PSCustomObject object must be farm-wide settings, and must be configurable only once for the entire farm. The parameter name added to the PSCustomObject object must match exactly the input parameter name for the Set-SPFarmConfig cmdlet.
SharePoint Management Shell
Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.
Gets the information stored in the current farm's service connection point in Active Directory.
$a = Get-SPFarmConfig
$a.AjaxTimeout = 200
$a | Set-SPFarmConfig
This example uses the
Get-SPFarmConfig cmdlet to add the
Ajax Timeout setting to the PSCustomObject object, sets the value for
Ajax Timeout, and then passes PSCustomObject to the Set-SPFarmConfig cmdlet to change the
Ajax Timeout setting.
Ajax Timeout, a farm-wide setting, is a member of the SPWebService object and cannot be accessed with a Windows PowerShell cmdlet.
You can perform the same operations with either of the following commands.
Set-SPFarmConfig -AjaxTimeout 200
Get-SPFarmConfig | Select AjaxTimeout 200
