##
## Common Options ##
##
/Source:<source> Specifies the source data from which to copy.
The source can be a directory including:
a file system directory, a blob container,
a blob virtual directory, a storage file share,
a storage file directory, or an Azure table.
The source can also be a single file including:
a file system file, a blob or a storage file.
The source is interpreted according to following rules:
1) When either file pattern option /Pattern or
recursive mode option /S is specified,
the source will be interpreted to a directory.
2) When both file pattern option /Pattern and
recursive mode option /S are not specified,
the source can be a single file or a directory.
In this case, AzCopy will choose an existing
location as the source, if the source is both
an existing file and an existing directory,
the source will be interpreted to a single file.

/Dest:<destination> Specifies the destination to copy to.
The destination can be a directory including:
a file system directory, a blob container,
a blob virtual directory, a storage file share,
a storage file directory, or an Azure table.
The destination can also be a single file including:
a file system file, a blob or a storage file.
The destination is interpreted according to following rules:
1) When source is a single file, destination
is interpreted as a single file.
2) When source is a directory, destination
is interpreted as a directory.

/SourceKey:<storage-key> Specifies the storage account key for the
source resource.

/DestKey:<storage-key> Specifies the storage account key for the
destination resource.

/SourceSAS:<SAS-Token> Specifies a Shared Access Signature with READ
and LIST permissions for the source (if
applicable). Surround the SAS with double
quotes, as it may contains special command-line
characters.
The SAS must be a Container/Share/Table SAS, or
an Account SAS with ResourceType that includes
Container.
If the source resource is a blob container,
and neither a key nor a SAS is provided, then
the blob container will be read via anonymous
access.
If the source is a file share or table, a key or
a SAS must be provided.

/DestSAS:<SAS-Token> Specifies a Shared Access Signature (SAS) with
READ and WRITE permissions for the
destination (if applicable). When /Y is
specified, and /XO /XN are not specified, the SAS
can have only WRITE permission for the operation
to succeed.
Surround the SAS with double quotes, as it may
contains special command-line characters.
The SAS must be a Container/Share/Table SAS, or
an Account SAS with ResourceType that includes
Container.
If the destination resource is a blob container,
file share or table, you can either specify this
option followed by the SAS token, or you can
specify the SAS as part of the destination blob
container, file share or table’s URI, without
this option.
This option is not supported when asynchronously
copying between two different types of storage
service or between two different accounts.

/V:[verbose-log-file] Outputs verbose status messages into a log
file.
By default, the verbose log file is named
AzCopyVerbose.log in
%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Azure\AzCopy. If you
specify an existing file location for this
option, the verbose log will be appended to
that file.

/Z:[journal-file-folder] Specifies a journal file folder for resuming an
operation.
AzCopy always supports resuming if an
operation has been interrupted.
If this option is not specified, or it is
specified without a folder path, then AzCopy
will create the journal file in the default
location, which is
%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Azure\AzCopy.
Each time you issue a command to AzCopy, it
checks whether a journal file exists in the
default folder, or whether it exists in a
folder that you specified via this option. If
the journal file does not exist in either
place, AzCopy treats the operation as new and
generates a new journal file.
If the journal file does exist, AzCopy will
check whether the command line that you input
matches the command line in the journal file.
If the two command lines match, AzCopy resumes
the incomplete operation. If they do not match,
you will be prompted to either overwrite the
journal file to start a new operation, or to
cancel the current operation.
The journal file is deleted upon successful
completion of the operation.
Note that resuming an operation from a journal
file created by a previous version of AzCopy
is not supported.

/@:<parameter-file> Specifies a file that contains parameters.
AzCopy processes the parameters in the file
just as if they had been specified on the
command line.
In a response file, you can either specify
multiple parameters on a single line, or
specify each parameter on its own line. Note
that an individual parameter cannot span
multiple lines.
Response files can include comments lines that
begin with the # symbol.
You can specify multiple response files.
However, note that AzCopy does not support
nested response files.

/Y Suppresses all AzCopy confirmation prompts.

/NC:<number-of-concurrent> Specifies the number of concurrent operations.
AzCopy by default starts a certain number of
concurrent operations to increase the data
transfer throughput.
Note that large number of concurrent operations
in a low-bandwidth environment may overwhelm
the network connection and prevent the
operations from fully completing. Throttle
concurrent operations based on actual available
network bandwidth.
The upper limit for concurrent operations is
512.

##
## Options – Applicable for Blob and Table Service Operations ##
##

/SourceType:<blob | table> Specifies that the source resource is a blob
or table available in the local development
environment, running in the storage emulator.

/DestType:<blob | table> Specifies that the destination resource is a
blob or table available in the local
development environment, running in the
storage emulator.

##
## Options – Applicable for Blob and File Service Operations ##
##

/S Specifies recursive mode for copy operations.
The /S parameter is only valid when the
source is a directory.
In recursive mode, AzCopy will copy all blobs
or files that match the specified file
pattern, including those in subfolders.

/Pattern:<file-pattern> Specifies a file pattern that indicates which
files to copy.
The behavior of the /Pattern parameter is
determined by the location of the source data,
and the presence of the recursive mode option.
The /Pattern parameter is only valid when the
source is a directory.
Recursive mode is specified via option /S.

If the specified source is a directory in
the file system, then standard wildcards are
in effect, and the file pattern provided is
matched against files within the directory.
If option /S is specified, then AzCopy also
matches the specified pattern against all
files in any subfolders beneath the directory.

If the specified source is a blob container or
virtual directory, then wildcards are not
applied. If option /S is specified, then AzCopy
interprets the specified file pattern as a blob
prefix. If option /S is not specified, then
AzCopy matches the file pattern against exact
blob names.
If the specified source is an Azure file share,
then you must either specify the exact file
name, (e.g. abc.txt) to copy a single file, or
specify option /S to copy all files in the
share recursively. Attempting to specify both a
file pattern and option /S together will result
in an error.

AzCopy uses case-sensitive matching when the
/Source is a blob, blob container or blob virtual
directory, and uses case-insensitive matching
in all the other cases.

The default file pattern used when no file
pattern is specified is *.* for a file system
location or an empty prefix for an Azure
Storage location.
Specifying multiple file patterns is not
supported.

/CheckMD5 Calculates an MD5 hash for downloaded data and
verifies that the MD5 hash stored in the blob
or file’s Content-MD5 property matches the
calculated hash. The MD5 check is turned off by
default, so you must specify this option to
perform the MD5 check when downloading data.
Note that Azure Storage doesn’t guarantee that
the MD5 hash stored for the blob or file is
up-to-date. It is client’s responsibility to
update the MD5 whenever the blob or file is
modified.
AzCopy always sets the Content-MD5 property for
an Azure blob or file after uploading it to the
service.

/L Specifies a listing operation only; no data is
copied.
AzCopy will interpret the using of this option as
a simulation for running the command line without
this option /L and count how many objects will
be copied, you can specify option /V at the same
time to check which objects will be copied in
the verbose log.
The behavior of this option is also determined by
the location of the source data and the presence
of the recursive mode option /S and file pattern
option /Pattern.
When using this option, AzCopy requires LIST and READ
permission of the source location if source is a directory,
or READ permission of the source location if source
is a single file.

/MT Sets the downloaded file’s last-modified time
to be the same as the source blob or file’s.

/XN Excludes a newer source resource. The resource
will not be copied if the source is the same
or newer than destination.

/XO Excludes an older source resource. The resource
will not be copied if the source resource is the
same or older than destination.

/A Uploads only files that have the Archive
attribute set.

/IA:[RASHCNETOI] Uploads only files that have any of the
specified attributes set.
Available attributes include:
R Read-only files
A Files ready for archiving
S System files
H Hidden files
C Compressed file
N Normal files
E Encrypted files
T Temporary files
O Offline files
I Not content indexed Files

/XA:[RASHCNETOI] Excludes files from upload that have any of the
specified attributes set.
Available attributes include:
R Read-only files
A Files ready for archiving
S System files
H Hidden files
C Compressed file
N Normal files
E Encrypted files
T Temporary files
O Offline files
I Not content indexed Files

/SyncCopy Indicates whether to synchronously copy blobs
or files among two Azure Storage end points.
AzCopy by default uses server-side
asynchronous copy. Specify this option to
download the blobs or files from the service
to local memory and then upload them to the
service.
/SyncCopy can be used in below scenarios:
1) Copying from Blob storage to Blob storage.
2) Copying from File storage to File storage.
3) Copying from Blob storage to File storage.
4) Copying from File storage to Blob storage.

/SetContentType:[content-
type] Specifies the content type of the destination
blobs or files.
AzCopy by default uses
“application/octet-stream” as the content type
for the destination blobs or files. If option
/SetContentType is specified without a value
for “content-type”, then AzCopy will set each
blob or file’s content type according to its
file extension. To set same content type for
all the blobs, you must explicitly specify a
value for “content-type”.

##
## Options – Only applicable for Blob Service Operations ##
##

/BlobType:<page | block
| append> Specifies whether the destination blob is a
block blob, a page blob or an append blob.
If the destination is a blob and this option
is not specified, then by default AzCopy will
create a block blob.

/Delimiter:<delimiter> Indicates the delimiter character used to
delimit virtual directories in a blob name.
By default, AzCopy uses / as the delimiter
character. However, AzCopy supports using any
common character (such as @, #, or %) as a
delimiter. If you need to include one of these
special characters on the command line, enclose
it with double quotes.
This option is only applicable for downloading
from an Azure blob container or virtual directory.

/Snapshot Indicates whether to transfer snapshots. This
option is only valid when the source is a
blob container or blob virtual directory.
The transferred blob snapshots are renamed in
this format: [blob-name] (snapshot-time)
[extension].
By default, snapshots are not copied.

##
## Options – only applicable for Table Service Operations ##
##

/PKRS:<“key1#key2#key3#…”> Splits the partition key range to enable
exporting table data in parallel, which
increases the speed of the export operation.
If this option is not specified, then AzCopy
uses a single thread to export table entities.
For example, if the user specifies
/PKRS:”aa#bb”, then AzCopy starts three
concurrent operations.
Each operation exports one of three partition
key ranges, as shown below:
[<first partition key>, aa)
[aa, bb)
[bb, <last partition key>]

/SplitSize:<file-size> Specifies the exported file split size in MB.
If this option is not specified, AzCopy will
export table data to single file.
If the table data is exported to a blob, and
the exported file size reaches the 200 GB limit
for blob size, then AzCopy will split the
exported file, even if this option is not
specified.

/EntityOperation:<InsertOrSkip
| InsertOrMerge
| InsertOrReplace> Specifies the table data import behavior.
InsertOrSkip – Skips an existing entity or
inserts a new entity if it does not exist in
the table.
InsertOrMerge – Merges an existing entity or
inserts a new entity if it does not exist in
the table.
InsertOrReplace – Replaces an existing entity
or inserts a new entity if it does not exist
in the table.

/Manifest:<manifest-file> Specifies the manifest file name for the table
export and import operation.
This option is optional during the export
operation, AzCopy will generate a manifest file
with predefined name if this option is not
specified.
This option is required during the import
operation for locating the data files.

/PayloadFormat:<JSON | CSV> Specifies the format of the exported data file.
If this option is not specified, by default
AzCopy exports data file in JSON format.

#Microsoft Introduction to Windows Admin Center #Winserv #Windows10 #Azure #hyperv #AzureStack

Microsoft is introducing the New Windows Admin Center ( former Project Honolulu )

Last weekend I made my MVPLAB.LOCAL domain with Project Honolulu version 1803 and Windows Server Insider version.

I Made my Domain controller first and later a Cluster with the Windows Server Insider Build version 17639

With Microsoft Windows Admin Center it’s great to manage Windows Server Core version Servers, you got a great GUI interface and you still have a small footprint for your Server OS with Core 🙂

Windows Admin Center is a new, locally-deployed, browser-based management tool set that lets you manage your Windows Servers with no Azure or cloud dependency. Windows Admin Center gives you full control over all aspects of your server infrastructure and is particularly useful for managing servers on private networks that are not connected to the Internet.
Windows Admin Center is the modern evolution of “in-box” management tools, like Server Manager and MMC. It complements System Center and Operations Management Suite – it’s not a replacement.

Architecture

In my MVPLAB.LOCAL I was busy to make a Gateway to Azure for Hybrid Cloud Management :

But with the Microsoft announcement of Windows Admin Center version 1804 yesterday, I will Upgrade my MVPLAB 😉
