Description

The Import-HgsKeyProtectionState cmdlet imports previously exported configuration of Key Protection Service from a file referenced by the path parameter. If the path parameter is not provided, the configuration state can be passed in as an XmlDocument to the Xml parameter. If the configuration contains certificates that were added to the service with pfx (containing private key), then the cmdlet also imports those certificates. If the configuration contains certificates that were previously added to Key Protection Certificate as pfx, then the password supplied must match the password that was provided at the time of exporting the configuration.

Examples

Example 1: Import Key Protection Service state from a file

PS C:\> Import-HgsKeyProtectionState -Path "C:\example\kps.config" -Password $Password

This command imports configuration state to a Key Protection Service from the file referenced by the path parameter. If the file contains private keys for certificates, then the password must be supplied by a secure string referenced by the $Password variable.

Example 2: Import Key Protection Service state from an XML document

PS C:\> Import-HgsKeyProtectionState -Xml $XmlDoc -Password $Password

This command imports configuration state to a Key Protection Service from an XML document referenced by the XML parameter. If the file contains private keys for certificates, then the password must be supplied by a secure string referenced by the $Password variable.
