I have a PowerShell script that updates document libraries to make sure that versioning is enabled:

$list.EnableVersioning = $true

How can I check whether versioning is enabled before making the change, so that I don't keep updating the list unnecessarily? I tried the following, but the syntax is incorrect:

if (list.EnableVersioning -ne $true) { $list.EnableVersioning = $true }

Above code works if I remember to add the $ before list "($list..." –  LCountee Jun 25 '12 at 14:58

If versioning on List is Enabled then perform changes:

  If ($list.EnableVersioning -eq $TRUE) 
  { 
     //perform changes

  }

This works in my environment

if($list.EnableVersioning=$true)

This condition will assign $true to the EnableVersioning and evaluate to true regardless of the old value of EnableVersioning –  Per Jakobsen Jun 25 '12 at 16:37
