Detailed Description

Configures the Site for first use. This must be run after the databases have been created. The databases may have been created manually using the scripts generated from Get-XDDatabaseSchema or automatically using New-XDDatabase.

You cannot pipe input into this cmdlet.

Return Values

Notes

The parameter set used with this cmdlet is dependent on the manner in which the databases were previously created.
If the databases were created with default names on a single SQL Server, use the following parameter set:
New-XDSite -AllDefaultDatabases -DatabaseServer <String> -SiteName <String> [-DatabaseMirrorServer <String>] [-DatabaseNamePrefix <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>]
If the databases were created with non-default names on a single SQL Server, use the following parameter set:
New-XDSite -DatabaseServer <String> -LoggingDatabaseName <String> -MonitorDatabaseName <String> -SiteDatabaseName <String> -SiteName <String> [-DatabaseMirrorServer <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>]
If the databases were created on seperate SQL Servers, use the following parameter set:
New-XDSite -LoggingDatabaseName <String> -LoggingDatabaseServer <String> -MonitorDatabaseName <String> -MonitorDatabaseServer <String> -SiteDatabaseName <String> -SiteDatabaseServer <String> -SiteName <String> [-LoggingDatabaseMirrorServer <String>] [-MonitorDatabaseMirrorServer <String>] [-SiteDatabaseMirrorServer <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>]
The command can fail for the following reasons:
o The Site associated with the Controller at AdminAddress is already configured.
o One or more of the specified databases could not be found.
o One or more of the specified databases does not have the necessary permissions for the Controller at AdminAddress.

Example 3

New-XDSite -AdminAddress MyController -AllDefaultDatabases -DatabaseServer MySqlServer -SiteName MySite -DatabaseNamePrefix MyPrefix-

Description

Configures a site called 'MySite' for the Controller 'MyController'. All previously created databases have default names with a prefix of 'MyPrefix-' and are hosted on the SQL Server 'MySqlServer'.

Example 4

New-XDSite -AdminAddress MyController -DatabaseServer MySqlServer -LoggingDatabaseName LoggingDb -MonitorDatabaseName MonitorDb -SiteDatabaseName SiteDb -SiteName MySite
