   -SourceSiteServerName <String>
   [-SmsProviderAccount <String>]

   [-ForceWildcardHandling]
   [-WhatIf]
   [-Confirm]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-CMMigrationSource cmdlet specifies or changes settings for a migration source site in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. To enable migration of data to your System Center Configuration Manager environment, you must configure a supported System Center Configuration Manager source hierarchy and specify one or more source sites that contain data that you want to migrate.

By default, the top-level site of the hierarchy becomes a source site of the source hierarchy. If you migrate from a Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 hierarchy, you can configure additional source sites for migration. If you migrate from a System Center Configuration Manager hierarchy, you do not need to configure additional source sites because the System Center Configuration Manager shared database at the top of the source hierarchy contains all of the information that you can migrate.

Examples

Example 1: Specify a migration source

PS C:\> Set-CMMigrationSource -SourceSiteServerName "cmdev-contoso01" -SmsProviderAccount "tsqa\pattifuller" -SqlServerAccount "tsqa\pattifuller" -EnableDistributionPointSharing $True

This command specifies the site server named cmdev-contoso01 as the source of migration data. It uses the user account for tsqa\pattifuller to provide access to the SQL Server database at the top of the source hierarchy and to connect to the SMS provider and source site database for the source site. The command also shares distribution points between the source and destination hierarchies.
