Description

The Publish-BCWebContent cmdlet creates hashes for web content when content servers are deployed running Windows Server® 2012 with the Web Services (IIS) server role installed. In addition, the web server must be configured as a BranchCache content server by installing the BranchCache feature.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>Publish-BCWebContent -Path D:\inetpub\wwwroot -Recurse

This example pre-hashes the contents of wwwroot, so that hashes are available as soon as requests are made.

EXAMPLE 2

PS C:\>Publish-BCWebContent -Path D:\inetpub\wwwroot -StageData

This example adds data to a data package, that can later be exported and preloaded on a remote hosted cache server.

Required Parameters

-Path

Specifies the file path, or the path to a directory containing files, that will be hashed.

Type:String[]
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

ps_cimcommon_asjob

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227967 or Get-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227966 cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

Runs the cmdlet without prompting for confirmation. By default the cmdlet asks for confirmation from the user before proceeding.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Recurse

Specifies that hashes are created for content in subfolders. If this parameter is not used, then hashes are created only for content in the top folder; no hashes are created for content in subfolders..

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ReferenceFile

Specifies a reference file from a previous run.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-StageData

Specifies that the hashes should be saved to a staging area for future export. Use this parameter if a data package is created for export. If this parameter is not specified, then hashes are generated for data, but data is not prepared for export.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-StagingPath

Specifies the folder location where staging data is stored.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-UseVersion

Specifies the version of the BranchCache hashing scheme to use. If the specified version is 1, then the content information is generated according to the scheme used by firstref_client_7clients. If the specified version is 2, then the content information is generated according to the more efficient hashing scheme used by client computers that are running operating systems later than Windows® 7.

Type:UInt32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi

Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
