Access Services cmdlets (SharePoint Server 2010)


Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise

Topic Last Modified: 2011-09-24

Access Services is a service in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 that lets an administrator view, edit, and configure a Microsoft Access application within a Web browser.

All Access Services settings support backup and recovery, regardless of whether there is a UI setting in Central Administration. However, backup and recovery only apply to service-level and administrative-level settings; end-user content from the Access application is not backed up as part of this process.

Access Services has Windows PowerShell functionality that you can use to provision the service or provision a new instance that uses settings from a previous backup; configure and manage macro and query setting; manage and configure session management; and configure all the global settings of the service.
