Mount-SPStateServiceDatabase

Attaches an existing state service database to the farm.

Syntax

Mount-SPStateServiceDatabase
     [-Name] <String>
     [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]
     [-DatabaseCredentials <PSCredential>]
     [-DatabaseServer <String>]
     [-ServiceApplication <SPStateServiceApplicationPipeBind>]
     [-Weight <Int32>]
     [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Mount-SPStateServiceDatabase cmdlet attaches an existing state service database to the farm. If the session state database schema is not installed in the state service database, use the Initialize-SPStateServiceDatabase cmdlet to install the schema after the state service database has been mounted.

Examples

--------------EXAMPLE 1-----------------

C:\PS>Mount-SPStateServiceDatabase -Name "statedata1" -DatabaseServer "localhost"

This example associates a SharePoint Server farm with a SQL Server database.

This example is used in least privilege scenarios when an administrator cannot create databases in SQL. The database must already exist and be empty. The database cannot be used until the Initialize-SPStateServiceDatabase cmdlet is run, so errors could occur with this example.

--------------EXAMPLE 2-----------------

C:\PS>Mount-SPStateServiceDatabase -Name "statedata1" -DatabaseServer "localhost" -ServiceApplication "ServiceApp1" -Weight 10 | Initialize-SPStateServiceDatabase

This example associates a SharePoint Server farm with a SQL Server database, at the same time that it also associates the database with a service application and gives a weight of 10. The result is immediately piped to the Initialize-SPStateServiceDatabase cmdlet so that the database can be used.

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies the database name that is created in the SQL Server database.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2013, SharePoint Server 2016

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.

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.

Type:SPAssignmentCollection
