Creates a binary encoded representation of an object or objects and stores it in a file.
Export-BinaryMiLog [-InputObject <CimInstance>] [-Path] <String> [<CommonParameters>]
The Export-BinaryMILog cmdlet creates a binary-based representation of an object or objects and stores it in a file. You can then use the Import-BinaryMiLog cmdlet to re-create the saved object based on the contents of that file.
This cmdlet is similar to Import-Clixml, except that Export-BinaryMILog stores the resulting object in a binary encoded file.
Example 1: Create a binary representation of CimInstances
PS C:\> Get-CimInstance Win32_Process | Export-BinaryMiLog -Path "Processes.bmil"
This command exports CimInstances to a binary MI log file specified by the Path parameter. See the example for Import-BinaryMiLog to see how to recreate the CimInstances by importing this file.
Specifies the input to this cmdlet. You can use this parameter, or you can pipe the input to this cmdlet.
Type: CimInstance Parameter Sets: (All) Aliases: Required: False Position: Named Default value: None Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue) Accept wildcard characters: False
Specifies the path of the file in which to store the binary representation of the object.
The Path parameter supports wild cards and relative paths. This cmdlet generates an error if the path resolves to more than one file.
Type: String Parameter Sets: (All) Aliases: Required: True Position: 0 Default value: None Accept pipeline input: False Accept wildcard characters: False
This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.
