Moves all MachineCreation Service tasks from the current execution host to another.
Switch-ProvTask [-Host2] <String> [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]
Enables tasks running within the MachineCreation Service to be moved from one execution host to a different host.
Tasks can only execute on a single host. If the host is removed from a deployment, the tasks cannot continue to execute. These 'orphaned' tasks can be moved to a different host within the deployment so that they can continue to execute. All tasks must be moved; there is no mechanism to move individual tasks. Run the Switch-ProvTask command against the host to which the tasks are to be moved; that is, if you are not running the command directly on the host, use the AdminAddress parameter to specify the host to which tasks will be moved.
|Name||Description||Required?||Pipeline Input||Default Value|
|Host2||Specifies the host from which the tasks should be removed.||true||false|
|LoggingId||Specifies the identifier of the high-level operation this cmdlet call forms a part of. Citrix Studio and Director typically create high-level operations. PowerShell scripts can also wrap a series of cmdlet calls in a high-level operation by way of the Start-LogHighLevelOperation and Stop-LogHighLevelOperation cmdlets.||false||false|
|BearerToken||Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user||false||false|
|AdminAddress||Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. You can provide this as a host name or an IP address.||false||false||Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value becomes the default.|
