Test-SbecActiveConfig

Tests the active Boot Event Collector configuration.

Syntax

Test-SbecActiveConfig
    [-Content] <String[]>
    [[-ComputerName] <String[]>]
    [[-CimSession] <CimSession[]>]
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Test-SbecActiveConfig cmdlet tests whether the specified Boot Event Collector configuration matches the current active configuration.

The comparison is done on the "normalized" text of the configuration by removing all the carriage return (\r) characters and by removing any empty lines at the end of configuration. The empty lines in the middle of the text are not removed, and the white space matters.

This command returns $True if the configurations match; otherwise, it returns $False.

This command throws an error on failures.

You must have the Builtin Administrator privilege to run this command.

Examples

Example 1: Test a configuration file through a pipeline

PS C:\> Get-Content -Path "c:\MyConfig.xml" | Test-SbecActiveConfig

This command compares the current configuration with the contents of the file MyConfig.xml by passing it through a pipeline.

Example 2: Test a configuration file through a parameter

PS C:\> Test-SbecActiveConfig -Content "(Get-Content -Path "c:\MyConfig.xml")"

This command compares the current configuration with the contents of the file MyConfig.xml by passing it as a parameter.
