Detailed Description

The Set-VMReplicationServer cmdlet configures a host as a Replica server and enables you to specify the types of authentication and ports to use for incoming replication traffic.

To restrict the replication traffic that the Replica server will accept by allowing it only from specific servers, use the New-VMReplicationAuthorizationEntry cmdlet.

Parameters

-AllowedAuthenticationType<RecoveryAuthenticationType>

Specifies which authentication types the Replica server will use. Allowed values are Kerberos, Certificate, or CertificateAndKerberos.

Default Value

none

Accept Pipeline Input?

false

Accept Wildcard Characters?

false

-CertificateAuthenticationPort<Int32>

Specifies the port on which the Replica server will receive replication data using certificate-based authentication. This parameter can be set only when the value of the AllowedAuthType parameter is Certificate or CertificateAndKerberos.

Default Value

-CertificateAuthenticationPortMapping<Hashtable>

When using Hyper-V Replica with failover clustering and certificate-based authorization, you can use this parameter to specify a different port for each node of the cluster to receive replication. We recommend that you specify a unique port for each node of the cluster, and one unique port for the Hyper-V Replica Broker. This parameter can be set only when the Replica server is configured with an authentication type of Certificate or CertificateAndKerberos.

-CertificateThumbprint<String>

Specifies the certificate to use for mutual authentication of the replication data. This parameter is required only when Certificate is specified as the type of authentication. Specify the thumbprint of a valid computer certificate from the Personal store.

--The certificate must have all of the following properties to be valid:

--It must not be expired.

--It must include both client and server authentication extensions for extended key usage (EKU), and an associated private key.

--It must terminate at a valid root certificate.

--Meet the requirements for the subject common name (CN):

For servers that are not clustered, the subject common name (CN) must be equal to, or subject alternative name (DNS Name) should contain, the FQDN of the host.

For servers that are clustered, each node must have two certificates – one in which the subject common name (CN) or subject alternative name (DNS Name) is the name of the node, and the other in which subject common name (CN) or subject alternative name (DNS Name) is FQDN of the Hyper-V Replica Broker.

To display a list of certificates in the computer’s My store and the thumbprint of each certificate, type the following:

PS C:\> cd cert:\LocalMachine\My

PS C:\> dir | format-list

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • None by default; VMRecoveryServer if –PassThru is specified.


Examples

Example 1

This example configures the local host as a Replica server and specifies Kerberos for authentication.


PS C:\>  Set-VMReplicationServer $true –AllowedAuthenticationType Kerberos 

Example 2

This example configures a Replica server that accepts replication from all authenticated servers and uses a default storage location of d:\DefaultReplicaStorage.


PS C:\>  Set-VMReplicationServer –ReplicationEnabled $true AllowedAuthenticationType –ReplicationAllowedFromAnyServer $true –DefaultStorageLocation d:\DefaultReplicaStorage

Example 3

This example configures the Replica server with a monitoring interval of 12 hours starting at 17:00 hours.


PS C:\>  Set-VMReplicationServer –MonitoringInterval “12:00:00” –MonitoringStartTime “17:00:00”

Example 4

This example configures the nodes of the cluster to receive replication on different ports. The first command declares a variable named portmapping and uses it to store the server names of the nodes and the port to use on each node. The second command configures each node of the cluster to use port mapping for Kerberos authentication using the values stored in the portmapping variable.


PS C:\>  $portmapping = @{"Server1.contoso.com" = 82; "Server2.contoso.com" = 81; "Broker.contoso.com" = 80}PS C:\> Set-VMReplicationServer -KerberosAuthenticationPortMapping $portmapping
