Import-XAFarm -MaxRecordCount Warning only first 250 records returned

Tom Swift


I'm using the Import-XAFarm utility to import applications in to a XenDesktop server environment but I'm getting an error message saying:


Warning: Only first 250 records returned.  Use -MaxRecordCount to retrieve more.


Here's my powershell command:

Import-XAFarm -XmlInputFile c:\xafarm.xml -LogFile c:\xafarm-import.log -IncludeDisabledApps


How do a set the MaxRecordCount to something like 9999?

I have aout 3800 applications to import.

After working with this script for a while, it appears the "Warning: Only first 250 records returned.  Use -MaxRecordCount to retrieve more." is just an information message and that applications continue to be imported.  Additionally, I was getting a fatal error message as well that was causing the import script to terminate but that was something else and not related to the 250 -MaxRecordCount warning.

If you use "-MaxReadCount" property in the last you will not get output, what you are looking for because this property will act like as input to our output.


Example: Here I'm trying to see the results for sessions information if you use a script like below you will get into error; stating -maxrecordcount property is not recognized.


Get-BrokerSession | Select-Object BrokeringUserName, BrokeringDuration, SessionState -MaxRecordCount 2000


Correct to call/use a script like below; then you will get output what you are looking for 

Get-BrokerSession -MaxRecordCount 2000| Select-Object BrokeringUserName, BrokeringDuration, SessionState 


hope it will be helpful.

I'd tried the following, which didn't work:


Import-XAFarm -XmlInputFile c:\xafarm.xml -LogFile c:\xafarm-import.log -IncludeDisabledApps -MaxRecordCount 9999


Trying the following:

Import-XAFARM -maxrec (press tab to auto complete) --> Doesn't recognize -MaxRecordCount as an appropriate parameter.


Get-BrokerApplication -MaxRecordCount 999 --> Works just fine 


In hopes of circumventing the problem, I did the following on the XenApp 6.0 server I used to export from:
