Find-SCLibraryShare

Finds all of the shares on the specified computer or library server that can be added as library shares.

Syntax

Find-SCLibraryShare [-ComputerName] <String> -Credential <VMMCredential> [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>]
 [<CommonParameters>]
Find-SCLibraryShare -LibraryServer <LibraryServer> [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Find-SCLibraryShare cmdlet finds all of the shares on the specified computer or library server that can be added as library shares. For library servers, this command also returns shares that are already Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library shares.

Examples

Example 1: Find Windows shares on a computer that is not yet a VMM library server

PS C:\> $Credential = Get-Credential
PS C:\> Find-SCLibraryShare -Credential $Credential -ComputerName "Server01.Contoso.com"

The first command uses Get-Credential to prompt you to supply a user name and password with permissions to access Windows shares on Server01 and stores your credentials in the $Credential variable.

The second command confirms that you have valid credentials for this operation and then displays all existing Windows shares capable of becoming VMM library shares.

Example 2: Find shares on a VMM library server

PS C:\> Find-SCLibraryShare -LibraryServer "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com"

This command displays all Windows shares capable of becoming library shares that exist on LibraryServer01 as well as all shares that are already VMM library shares.
