Description

The Reset-SPSites cmdlet synchronizes the content database with the configuration database of the farm with respect to what site collections actually exist in the content database.

It also ensures that all site collections in the content database are registered in the configuration database and removes any site collection references in the configuration database if the site collection does not exist in the content database.

Examples

$contentdb = Get-SPContentDatabase ContentDbName
Reset-SPSites -Identity $contentDb

Synchronizes the sites in the content database named ContentDbName with the configuration database.

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.
