Moves all Machine Creation Service tasks from the current execution host to another.
Switch-ProvTask [-Host2] <String> [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-TraceParent <String>] [-TraceState <String>] [-VirtualSiteId <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]
Enables tasks running within the Machine Creation 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. 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|
|TraceParent||Specifies the trace parent assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use||false||false|
|TraceState||Specifies the trace state assigned for internal diagnostic tracing user||false||false|
|VirtualSiteId||Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to.||false||false|
|AdminAddress||The address of a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 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.|
