Powershell: Update all Document Libraries with MajorVersionLimit and MajorWithMinorVersionsLimit

by mysticslayer on Jun.15, 2011, under blog, Powershell, SharePoint 2010

I had to write a Powershell script to run thru all sites in a Web Application to enable Versioning. As well Major as Minor versions. With of course a limit on Major and Minor versions.

Next script should do the trick:

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -erroraction SilentlyContinue
$siteURL = $args[0]
$site = Get-SPSite($siteURL)
foreach($web in $site.AllWebs) {
 Write-Host "Inspecting " $web.Title
 foreach ($list in $web.Lists) {
  if($list.BaseType -eq "DocumentLibrary") {
  Write-Host "Versioning enabled: " $list.EnableVersioning
  $host.UI.WriteLine()
  Write-Host "MinorVersioning Enabled: "  $list.EnableMinorVersions
  $host.UI.WriteLine()
  Write-Host "EnableModeration: " $list.EnableModeration
  $host.UI.WriteLine()
  Write-Host "Major Versions: " $list.MajorVersionLimit
  $host.UI.WriteLine()
  Write-Host "Minor Versions: " $list.MajorWithMinorVersionsLimit
  $host.UI.WriteLine()
  $list.EnableVersioning = $true
  $list.EnableMinorVersions = $true
  $list.MajorVersionLimit = 2
  $list.MajorWithMinorVersionsLimit = 5
  $list.Update()
  Write-Host $list.Title " is updated with MajorVersionLimit 2 and MajorwithMinorVersionsLimit = 5"
  }
 }
}
