Read-SCLibraryShare

Updates the state and metadata of VMM library objects stored in a library share.

Syntax

Read-SCLibraryShare [-LibraryShare] <LibraryShare> [-JobVariable <String>] [-PROTipID <Guid>] [-Path <String>]
 [-RunAsynchronously] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Read-SCLibraryShare cmdlet updates the state and metadata of all Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library objects stored in the specified library share. This update also finds new library files on the specified library share as well as new child shared folders under the specified library share.

Examples

Example 1: Update a specified library share

PS C:\> $LibShare = Get-SCLibraryShare -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" -and $_.Name -eq "AllVHDs" }
PS C:\> Read-SCLibraryShare -LibraryShare $LibShare

The first command gets the library share object named AllVHDs on LibraryServer01 from the VMM library on VMMServer01 and then stores the object in the $LibShare variable.

The second command updates the state and metadata information for all library objects in the share stored in $LibShare, and then it adds any new library objects found in the share to the VMM library.

Example 2: Update multiple library shares

PS C:\> $LibShares = Get-SCLibraryShare -VMMServer "VMMServer1.Contoso.com" | where { $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" -and $_.Name -match "vhd" }
PS C:\> $LibShares | Read-SCLibraryShare

The first command gets the library share objects on LibraryServer01 with the string "vhd" in their names, and then stores the objects in the $LibShares variable.

The second command updates the information for all library shares stored in $LibShares, and then it adds any new library objects found in these shares to the VMM library.

Example 3: Update a specific subdirectory on a library share

PS C:\> $LibShare = Get-SCLibraryShare -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" -and $_.Name -eq "AllVHDs" }
PS C:\> Read-SCLibraryShare -LibraryShare $LibShare -Path "Production\WebFrontEnd"

The first command gets the library share object named AllVHDs on LibraryServer01 from the VMM library on VMMServer01 and then stores the object in the $LibShare variable.

The second command updates the state and metadata information for all library objects in the specified subdirectory on the library share that is stored in $LibShare, and then it adds any new library objects found in the share to the VMM library.
