Set-SPBackConnectionHostNames -UpdateFarm <SwitchParameter> -FarmCredentials <PSCredential> [-WebApplication [<SPWebApplicationPipeBind>]] [-AssignmentCollection [<SPAssignmentCollection>]]

Set-SPBackConnectionHostNames [-WebApplication [<SPWebApplicationPipeBind>]] [-AssignmentCollection [<SPAssignmentCollection>]]

Parameters

1

ParameterRequiredTypeDescription
UpdateFarmTrueSwitchParameter

Update all servers in the farm.

FarmCredentialsTruePSCredential

The credentials to use on the remote servers to perform the update.

WebApplicationFalseSPWebApplicationPipeBind

The web application whose URLs will be added to the set of back connection host names.

The type must be a valid URL, in the form http://server_name; or an instance of a valid SPWebApplication object.

AssignmentCollectionFalseSPAssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.
