Sets properties of a machine pool.

Set-SPRoutingMachinePool [-Identity] <SPRoutingMachinePoolPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-MachineTargets <SPRoutingRuleTargetPipeBind[]>]

Use the Set-SPRoutingMachinePool cmdlet to set properties of a machine pool by using the Identity parameter.

SharePoint Management Shell


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the name of the request management settings object to set.




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.

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.




Specifies the routing targets collection that the machine pool will contain.

$web=Get-SPWebApplication -Identity <URL of web application>
$rm=Get-SPRequestManagementSettings -Identity $web
$pool=Get-SPRoutingMachinePool -RequestManagementSettings $rm
Set-SPRoutingMachinePool -Identity $pool -MachineTargets <Machine collections>

This example sets the machine pool property of MachineTargets for a specified identity as defined by the $pool variable.
