Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource

Exports a library resource form a VMM library share to a local file folder or network share.

Syntax

Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource [-Path] <String> [-AllowUnencryptedTransfer] [-OverwriteExistingFiles]
 -Resource <ItemBase> [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource cmdlet exports (copies) a library resource from a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library share to a local file folder or network share.

Examples

Example 1: Export a specific library resource to a local file folder

PS C:\> $Resource = Get-SCVirtualHardDisk -Name "VHD01.vhd"
PS C:\> Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource -Resource $Resource -Path "C:\ExportedLibResources" -OverwriteExistingFiles

The first command gets the virtual hard disk object named VHD01 and stores the object in the $Resource variable.

The second command exports the resource stored in $Resource to the folder named C:\ExportedLibResources. If the resource had been previously exported to this folder, this command would overwrite any of those files.

Example 2: Export a library resource to a network share

PS C:\> $Resource = Get-SCApplicationPackage -Name "WebApp01.zip"
PS C:\> Export-SCLibraryPhysicalResource -Resource $Resource -Path "\\FileShare01\LibExports"

The first command gets the application package object named WebApp01.zip and stores the object in the $Resource variable.

The second command exports the library resource stored in $Resource to the network share named \FileShare01\LibExports.

Parameters

-AllowUnencryptedTransfer

Indicates that network file transfers do not require encryption. If you allow unencrypted network file transfers, it can improve performance if neither the source host nor the destination host requires encryption.

Use this parameter to:

- Allow unencrypted file transfers into, or out of, the library.

  • Allow unencrypted file transfers into, out of, or within a host group.
