Copy side by side files.

Syntax

Copy-SPSideBySideFiles
    [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]
    [-LogFile <String>]
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

In SharePoint Server 2016, zero down time in-place upgrade is available. If the PSConfig.exe file is used during an upgrade and copy SideBySide files fail, you can use the Copy-SPSideBySideFiles cmdlet to copy SideBySide files. If you use Microsoft PowerShell scripts instead of PSConfig.exe to perform an upgrade, please run the Copy-SPSideBySideFiles cmdlet to copy SideBySide files.

Examples

Example 1

Copy-SPSideBySideFiles -LogFile "C:\CopySideBySideFiles.log"

This example copies SideBySide files and writes a log data of the copy process to the CopySideBySideFiles.log file.

Optional Parameters

-AssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

NOTE: When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.
