Import-SPAccessServicesDatabase

Imports an Access Services Database to a DACPAC via the Data-Tier Framework.

Syntax

Import-SPAccessServicesDatabase
      [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]
      -Bacpac <Byte[]>
      -DatabaseName <String>
      -ServerReferenceId <Guid>
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

This cmdlet exports an Access Services Database to a DACPAC. The cmdlet requires the Data-Tier Framework to be installed on the SharePoint server where the cmdlet is run. The Data-Tier Framework packages can be found at Microsoft® SQL Server® Data-Tier Application Framework (17.4.1 GA DacFx). Install the following MSI from the download:

EN\x86\DacFramework.msi

Note: The x86 package is required. The x64 package is not compatible with this cmdlet.

See more information about Data-Tier Framework at Data-tier Applications.

Examples

Example 1

$accessDb = Get-SPAccessServicesDatabaseServer -ServiceContext http://site_url -DatabaseServer SQLSERVERNAME -DatabaseServerGroup DEFAULT
Import-SPAccessServicesDatabase -DatabaseName accessDatabaseName -ServerReferenceId $accessDb.ServerReferenceId -Bacpac (Get-Content -Path C:\accessDb.bacpac -Encoding Byte)

This example gets the ServerReferenceId value of the SQL Server for the Access Services Service Application; -DatabaseServerGroup is set to the value DEFAULT by default. The next step is to import the bacpac file to a byte array and finally, import the Access Services Database as the specified SQL database name to the specified SQL Server.

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.

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.
