    [-SearchApplication] <SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind>
    [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]
    [-Confirm]

Description

The Move-SPEnterpriseSearchLinksDatabases cmdlet moves data across a given list of links databases during farm configuration and scale out, to improve the performance and resource load of the farm. Once the move has started, the cmdlet will return a unique identifier, the RepartitioningId. Use this identifier to retrigger if the current run fails. After the move has finished, the old databases can be removed.

A links database stores query logging and analytics information.

Examples

--------EXAMPLE--------

C:\PS>$ssa=Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceapplication
$ssa | New-SPEnterpriseSearchLinksDatabase -DatabaseName "links1"
$ssa | New-SPEnterpriseSearchLinksDatabase -DatabaseName "links2"
$ssa | New-SPEnterpriseSearchLinksDatabase -DatabaseName "links3"
$dbs = $ssa | Get-SPEnterpriseSearchLinksDatabase
$ssa | Repartition-SPEnterpriseSearchLinksDatabases -TargetStores $dbs

This example adds 3 new links databases and uses Move-SPEnterpriseSearchLinksDatabases to move data from the current links databases into new databases.

Required Parameters

-SearchApplication

Specifies the search application that contains the links database. The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid search application name (for example, SearchApp1); or an instance of a valid SearchServiceApplication object.

Specifies the search application that contains the links database. The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid search application name (for example, SearchApp1); or an instance of a valid SearchServiceApplication object.

Type:SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to: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
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
