Creating a Content Database Profile Using RBS

This example creates a basic content database profile using the RBS interface. RBS requires SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition and the profile creation will error out if trying to activate an RBS profile on any previous edition of SQL Server.

$cid = Get-ContentDbId –s "http://sharepoint/site"

Add-Endpoint –epn "NAS Endpoint 1" –adn "FileSystem" –conn "path=\\NAS\FILESTORE" –UseCompression –UseEncryption –EncryptionPassphrase "anypassword"

Add-Profile –pn "Content Db Profile" –ptype ContentDb –sid $cid –UseRBS –eid "NAS Endpoint 1"

Creating Multiple Profiles Using the Same Endpoint

This example iterates all of the site collections in a web application and creates a profile for each one. Each profile uses the same endpoint but specifies a different Start Folder. Using different Start Folder values will keep the content separated by profile even though the same endpoint is being used.

# Add the common endpoint

Add-Endpoint –epn "Common Endpoint 1" –adn "FileSystem" –conn "path=\\NAS\COMMON"


# Get web app - there are many other ways to do this.

$site = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://spsite")

$webapp = $site.WebApplication


# Iterate through all site collections in web app

foreach($sc in $webapp.Sites)


 $startfolder = $sc.RootWeb.Title

 $profilename = $startfolder + " Profile"

 Write-Output "Creating profile for: $startfolder"


 # Create profile

Add-Profile –pn $profilename –ptype SiteCollection –sid $sc.ID.ToString() –eid "Common Endpoint 1" -EndpointStartFolder $startfolder


 # Cleanup




# Cleanup


Creating a Profile with Asynchronous Endpoint Selection

This example creates a profile that will select endpoints asynchronously. This allows the profile to support enhanced filters including file extension/type and multiple additional scope options including web, list and content type. This sample sets up a filter to externalize only Microsoft Word and Excel documents.


$siteid = Get-SiteCollectionId –s "http://sharepoint/site"


Add-Endpoint –epn "NAS Endpoint 1" –adn "FileSystem" –conn "path=\\NAS\FILESTORE"


Add-Profile –pn "Site Collection 1 Profile" –ptype SiteCollection –sid $siteid –SelectEndpointAsync –eid "NAS Endpoint 1" –EndpointFileTypeOp 1 –EndpointFileTypes "DOCX,DOC,XLS,XLSX"

Displaying All Endpoints Meeting Certain Criteria

This example displays all endpoints in the system whose name contains the word Test. This illustrates the use of WHERE filters in PowerShell as well as use of StoragePoint API object properties (EndpointAPI.Name and .Connection in this case).

$Endpoints = Get-AllEndpoints | Where-Object {$_.Name -Like "*Test*"}

ForEach ($ep in $Endpoints) {$ep.Name + " : " + $ep.Connection}
