Optional Parameters

-ConnectionString

Specifies a connection string for a hosting database. Connection strings contain information about a data source and how to connect to it; this information includes such things as the server and database name, and the name and password of the user account making the connection. For example:

-ConnectionString "Server=tcp:contosodb.database.windows.net;Database=Personel;User ID=admin@contoso.com;Password=p@ssw0rd;Trusted_Connection=False;Encrypt=True;"

If you do not specify this parameter, Test-WebSitesServer uses the default instance of the hosting database.
