Suspend-DfsReplicationGroup

Suspends replication between computers regardless of schedule.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Suspend-DfsReplicationGroup [-GroupName] <String[]> [-SourceComputerName] <String> [-DestinationComputerName] <String> [-DurationInMinutes] <UInt32> [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Suspend-DfsReplicationGroup cmdlet suspends replication between computers, even if replication was scheduled by either a replication group or a connection.

This cmdlet ignores the schedule for a specified number of minutes. This is typically preferable to altering the schedule temporarily to prevent replication, because this cmdlet does not require Active Directory replication and LDAP polling.

Parameters

-DestinationComputerName<String>

Specifies the name of the receiving computer. A destination computer is also called an inbound or downstream computer. This computer overrides its schedule and stops inbound replication.
