Synopsis

Migrates user SQL Data Collector collection sets. SQL Data Collector configuration is on the agenda, but it's hard.

Description

By default, all data collector objects are migrated. If the object already exists on the destination, it will be skipped unless -Force is used.

The -CollectionSet parameter is auto-populated for command-line completion and can be used to copy only specific objects.

Syntax

    [-Source] <DbaInstanceParameter>
    [[-SourceSqlCredential] <PSCredential>]
    [-Destination] <DbaInstanceParameter[]>
    [[-DestinationSqlCredential] <PSCredential>]
    [[-CollectionSet] <Object[]>]
    [[-ExcludeCollectionSet] <Object[]>]
    [-NoServerReconfig]
    [-Force]
    [-EnableException]
    [-WhatIf]
    [-Confirm]
    [<CommonParameters>]

-EnableException

By default, when something goes wrong we try to catch it, interpret it and give you a friendly warning message. This avoids overwhelming you with "sea of red" exceptions, but is inconvenient because it basically disables advanced scripting. Using this switch turns this "nice by default" feature off and enables you to catch exceptions with your own try/catch.
