Gets an administrative principal from the database.

Syntax

Get-MgmtSvcAdminUser [[-Principal] <String[]>] [-ConnectionString <String>] [-EncryptionAlgorithm <String>]
 [-EncryptionKey <String>] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-MgmtSvcAdminUser [[-Principal] <String[]>] [-Database <String>] [-EncryptionAlgorithm <String>]
 [-EncryptionKey <String>] [-Password <String>] [-Server <String>] [-UserName <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-MgmtSvcAdminUser cmdlet gets an administrative user from the database.

If this cmdlet is run on the computer on which the Admin API service is installed and the Web.config file contains values for EncryptionKey and EncryptionAlgorithm, then those values are used.

You must use the Server, UserName, Password, and Database parameters, or a SQL connection string.
If you specify a connection string by using the ConnectionString parameter, that value takes precedence over the Server, UserName, Password, and Database parameters.

Examples

This command gets the principal named Patti Fuller by using a connection string to connect to the database.
