Modifying the Tombstone Lifetime for a Domain

Updated: February 28, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic explains how to use the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell to modify the tombstone lifetime for a domain in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).

The following example demonstrates how to modify the tombstone lifetime for the Fabrikam.com domain:

Set-ADObject -Identity "CN=Directory Service,CN=Windows NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM" -Partition "CN=Configuration,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM" -Replace @{tombstoneLifetime='210'}

You can use the following parameters when you set many of the common values of Active Directory objects:

  • -Description

  • -DisplayName

  • -ProtectedFromAccidentalDeletion

For a full explanation of the parameters that you can pass to Set-ADObject, at the Active Directory module command prompt, type Get-Help Set-ADObject –detailed, and then press ENTER.
