Add-AzureRmSqlDatabaseToFailoverGroup

Adds one or more databases to an Azure SQL Database Failover Group.

Caution

Because Az PowerShell modules now have all the capabilities of AzureRM PowerShell modules and more, we'll retire AzureRM PowerShell modules on 29 February 2024.

To avoid service interruptions, update your scripts that use AzureRM PowerShell modules to use Az PowerShell modules by 29 February 2024. To automatically update your scripts, follow the quickstart guide.

Syntax

Add-AzureRmSqlDatabaseToFailoverGroup
   [-ServerName] <String>
   [-FailoverGroupName] <String>
   -Database <System.Collections.Generic.List`1[Microsoft.Azure.Commands.Sql.Database.Model.AzureSqlDatabaseModel]>
   [-ResourceGroupName] <String>
   [-DefaultProfile <IAzureContextContainer>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

Adds one or more databases on a Azure SQL Database Failover Group's primary server to that Failover Group. The databases must not be secondary databases in existing replication relationships. The command will start geo-replication of any added databases to the Failover Group's secondary server. To obtain database objects with which to populate the '-Database' parameter, use (for example) the Get-AzureRmSqlDatabase cmdlet. The Failover Group's primary server must be used to execute the command.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> $failoverGroup = Get-AzureRmSqlDatabase -ResourceGroupName rg -ServerName primaryserver -DatabaseName db1 | Add-AzureRmSqlDatabaseToFailoverGroup -ResourceGroupName rg -ServerName primaryserver -FailoverGroupName fg

This command adds one database to a Failover Group by piping it in.

Example 2

PS C:\> $primaryServer = Get-AzureRmSqlServer -ResourceGroupName rg -ServerName primaryserver
PS C:\> $failoverGroup = $primaryServer | Add-AzureRmSqlDatabaseToFailoverGroup -FailoverGroupName fg -Database ($primaryServer | Get-AzureRmSqlDatabase)

This command adds all databases in a server to a Failover Group.

Example 3

PS C:\> $failoverGroup = Get-AzureRmSqlDatabaseFailoverGroup -ResourceGroupName rg -ServerName primaryserver -FailoverGroupName fg
PS C:\> $databases = Get-AzureRmSqlElasticPoolDatabase -ResourceGroupName rg -ServerName primaryserver -ElasticPoolName pool1
PS C:\> $failoverGroup = $failoverGroup | Add-AzureRmSqlDatabaseToFailoverGroup -Database $databases

This command adds all databases in an Elastic Pool to a Failover Group.
