Start-SilLogging

Starts Software Inventory Logging daily logging.

Syntax

Start-SilLogging
     [[-CimSession] <CimSession[]>]
     [-WhatIf]
     [-Confirm]
     [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Start-SilLogging cmdlet starts Software Inventory Logging daily logging. If logging is started, Software Inventory Logging collects data daily from all Software Inventory Logging data sources, and then forwards this data over the network to an aggregation server. Specify an aggregation server by using the Set-SilLogging cmdlet. If you do not specify an aggregation server and the server is a virtual machine that runs on a Hyper-V host, then the daily collection forwards the Software Inventory Logging data to a location that its Windows Server host can access.
