Azure Service Fabric (local cluster) - can't get access to image store

senglory 1 Reputation point


I installed Service Fabric Local Cluster and now trying to get access to its image store. Per this link

I'm trying to call

Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent -ImageStoreConnectionString "fabric:/ImageStore"  

but get this message:

Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent : One or more errors occurred.
At line:1 char:1

  • Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent -ImageStoreConnectionString "fabri ...
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent], AggregateException
  • FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.AggregateException,Microsoft.ServiceFabric.Powershell.GetImageStoreContent

Ok, trying to use



Using ImageStoreConnectionString='file:C:\SfDevCluster\Data\ImageStoreShare'

StoreRelativePath Type

Store Folder [9831 files]

but when I call this:

Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent -ImageStoreConnectionString='file:C:\SfDevCluster\Data\ImageStoreShare'  

I get this weird message:

Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument '-ImageStoreConnectionString=file:C:\SfDevCluster\Data\ImageStoreShare'.
At line:1 char:1

  • Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent -ImageStoreConnectionString='file: ...
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent], ParameterBindingException
  • FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Microsoft.ServiceFabric.Powershell.GetImageStoreContent

How should I use Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent and ImageStoreConnectionString to get access to it?

    Hello @senglory ,

    Powershell works by either the -param:value or -param(space)value syntax. So either of the following should work:

    Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent -ImageStoreConnectionString:"file:C:\SfDevCluster\Data\ImageStoreShare"
    Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent -ImageStoreConnectionString "file:C:\SfDevCluster\Data\ImageStoreShare"

    The connection string is the above as this is a dev cluster. Azure clusters always have this set to "fabric:ImageStore".
    Although when in doubt, you can always verify the value of ImageStoreConnectionString by retrieving the Service Fabric cluster manifest for the current connection with the Get-ServiceFabricClusterManifest cmdlet.

    This should simplify it all even further:

    Get-ServiceFabricImageStoreContent -ImageStoreConnectionString (Get-ImageStoreConnectionStringFromClusterManifest(Get-ServiceFabricClusterManifest))


    The Get-ImageStoreConnectionStringFromClusterManifest cmdlet, which is part of the Service Fabric SDK PowerShell module, is used to get the image store connection string. To import the SDK module, run:

    Import-Module "$ENV:ProgramFiles\Microsoft SDKs\Service Fabric\Tools\PSModule\ServiceFabricSDK\ServiceFabricSDK.psm1"
