Destination SQL Server. You must have sysadmin access and the server must be SQL Server 2000 or higher.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-SourceSqlCredential

Login to the target instance using alternative credentials. Accepts PowerShell credentials (Get-Credential). Windows Authentication, SQL Server Authentication, Active Directory - Password, and Active Directory - Integrated are all supported. For MFA support, please use Connect-DbaInstance.

Alias

-DestinationSqlCredential

Login to the target instance using alternative credentials. Accepts PowerShell credentials (Get-Credential). Windows Authentication, SQL Server Authentication, Active Directory - Password, and Active Directory - Integrated are all supported. For MFA support, please use Connect-DbaInstance.

Alias

Default Value
-SqlInstance

Specifies a SQL Server instance to set up sp_configure values on using a SQL file.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-Path

Specifies the path to a SQL script file holding sp_configure queries for each of the settings to be changed. Export-DbaSPConfigure creates a suitable file as its output.

Alias

Pipeline false
Default Value
-SqlCredential

Use this SQL credential if you are setting up sp_configure values from a SQL file. Login to the target instance using alternative credentials. Accepts PowerShell credentials (Get-Credential). Windows Authentication, SQL Server Authentication, Active Directory - Password, and Active Directory - Integrated are all supported. For MFA support, please use Connect-DbaInstance.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-Force

If this switch is enabled, no version check between Source and Destination is performed. By default, the major and minor versions of Source and Destination must match when copying sp_configure settings.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value False
-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.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value False
-WhatIf

If this switch is enabled, no actions are performed but informational messages will be displayed that explain what would happen if the command were to run.

Alias wi
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-Confirm

If this switch is enabled, you will be prompted for confirmation before executing any operations that change state.

Alias cf
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
