Suspends data movement on an availability database.

Syntax

Suspend-SqlAvailabilityDatabase [[-Path] <String[]>] [-Script] [-InformationAction <ActionPreference>]
 [-InformationVariable <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]
Suspend-SqlAvailabilityDatabase [-InputObject] <AvailabilityDatabase[]> [-Script]
 [-InformationAction <ActionPreference>] [-InformationVariable <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]
 [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Suspend-SqlAvailabilityDatabase cmdlet suspends data movement on an availability database. This cmdlet suspends a database on the replica that is hosted by the current server instance. If you suspend a secondary database, this cmdlet sets its state to SUSPENDED. It falls behind the corresponding primary database. If you suspend a primary database, data movement stops on every secondary replica.

Examples

Example 1: Suspend synchronization for a database

PS C:\> Suspend-SqlAvailabilityDatabase -Path "SQLSERVER:\Sql\Server\Instance\AvailabilityGroups\MainAG\AvailabilityDatabases\Database16"

This command suspends data synchronization for the availability database Database16 in the availability group named MainAG on the server instance named Server\Instance.

Example 2: Suspend synchronization for all databases

PS C:\> Get-ChildItem "SQLSERVER:\Sql\Server\Instance\AvailabilityGroups\MainAG\AvailabilityDatabases" | Suspend-SqlAvailabilityDatabase

This command gets all the availability databases that belong to MainAG, and then passes them to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The current cmdlet suspends each availability database.

Example 3: Create a script to suspend a database

PS C:\> Suspend-SqlAvailabilityDatabase -Path "SQLSERVER:\Sql\Server\Instance\AvailabilityGroups\MainAG\AvailabilityDatabases\Database16" -Script

This command creates a Transact-SQL script that suspends the availability database named Database16 in the availability group named MainAG. The command does not perform this action.
