New-SyncShare

Creates a sync share.

Syntax

Parameter Set: cim:CreateInstance0
New-SyncShare [-Name] <String> [-Path] <String> [-User] <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Description <String> ] [-FallbackEnterpriseID <String> ] [-InheritParentFolderPermission] [-MaxUploadFile <UInt64> ] [-PasswordAutolockExcludeDomain <String[]> ] [-RequireEncryption <Boolean> ] [-RequirePasswordAutoLock <Boolean> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Type <String> ] [-UserFolderName <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-SyncShare cmdlet creates a sync share. Sync shares are used by Work Folders to store user files and sync them with user PCs and devices.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

-FallbackEnterpriseID<String>

Specifies the fallback Enterprise ID that the sync share uses if it cannot successfully query Active Directory® Domain Services (AD DS). If the server cannot successfully query AD DS, the server uses the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the sync server as the fallback Enterprise ID unless you specify a different Enterprise ID by using this parameter. The Enterprise ID is issued by the Work Folders client to encrypt data on the PC or device.

The Enterprise ID is typically constructed by querying AD DS for the primary SMTP address of the user, removing the username and ampersand (user@), and sending the remainder to the client as the Enterprise ID. For example, EvanNarvaez@Contoso.com yields the contoso.com Enterprise ID.

-InheritParentFolderPermission

Indicates that the sync share inherits the permissions of the parent folder. If you specify this parameter, user folders inherit permissions from the parent folder of the sync share, and administrators can access the data. If you do not specify this parameter, by default each user is granted exclusive access to their user folder, and administrators have no access rights.

-PasswordAutolockExcludeDomain<String[]>

Specifies a list of domain names in FQDN format whose clients are to be exempted from the password policy. If the RequirePasswordAutoLock property on the sync share is false, then this parameter has no effect. If RequirePasswordAutoLock is true, clients that are members of the specified domains are not requested by Work Folders to enforce password length and lock policies on the device. It is assumed that their security is managed by the Group Policy of their domain.

You can specify the path with a drive letter or UNC format, but the path must be local to the server or failover cluster. You cannot create a sync share inside another sync share, and the path cannot contain any mount points.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

-UserFolderName<String>

Specifies a folder-naming format for the user folder on the sync share. To maintain compatibility with existing user folders that use aliases for their names, specify [user], which is required, or omit this parameter. To eliminate conflicts between identical user aliases in different domains, specify [user]@[domain]. You can also specify a relative path under the sync share root; for example, UserData\[user].

Sync share creates each user folder during the first sync operation, if it doesn’t already exist. If the user folder exists, confirm that the user has Read/Write or Full Control permissions and is the owner of their folder, unless the folder is owned by an Administrators group.

PS C:\> New-SyncShare Share01 K:\Share01 -User ContosoEngGroup

DevicePolicy : Share01
Enabled : True
ExclusiveAccessToUser : True

UserFolderName : %username%
PSComputerName :

Example 2: Create a new sync share by using full usernames to name user folders

This command creates a sync share and specifies that user folders should use the user @ domain folder-naming format.


PS C:\> New-SyncShare Share01 K:\Share01 -User ContosoEngGroup -UserFolderName [user]@[domain]
