Detailed Description

The Set-ADResourceProperty cmdlet can be used to modify a resource property in Active Directory.

Parameters

-Add<Hashtable>

Specifies values to add to an object property. Use this parameter to add one or more values to a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can specify multiple values to a property by specifying a comma-separated list of values and more than one property by separating them using a semicolon.. The format for this parameter is

-Add @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...; Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...; AttributeNLDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...}

For example, if you want to remove the value "555-222-2222" and add the values "555-222-1111" and "555-222-3333" to Phone-Office-Other attribute (LDAP display name 'otherTelephone'), and add the value "555-222-9999" to Phone-Mobile-Other (LDAP display name 'otherMobile'), set the Add and Remove parameters as follows.

-Add @{otherTelephone='555-222-1111', '555-222-3333'; otherMobile='555-222-9999' } -Remove @{otherTelephone='555-222-2222'}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

..Remove

..Add

..Replace

-Clear<String[]>

Specifies an array of object properties that will be cleared in the directory. Use this parameter to clear one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can modify more than one property by specifying a comma-separated list. The format for this parameter is

-Clear Attribute1LDAPDisplayName, Attribute2LDAPDisplayName

For example, if you want to clear the value for the Phone-Office-Other attribute (LDAP display name 'otherTelephone') set the Clear parameter as follows.

-Credential<PSCredential>

Specifies the user account credentials to use to perform this task. The default credentials are the credentials of the currently logged on user unless the cmdlet is run from an Active Directory PowerShell provider drive. If the cmdlet is run from such a provider drive, the account associated with the drive is the default.

To specify this parameter, you can type a user name, such as "User1" or "Domain01\User01" or you can specify a PSCredential object. If you specify a user name for this parameter, the cmdlet prompts for a password.

You can also create a PSCredential object by using a script or by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. You can then set the Credential parameter to the PSCredential object The following example shows how to create credentials.

$AdminCredentials = Get-Credential "Domain01\User01"

The following shows how to set the Credential parameter to these credentials.

-Credential $AdminCredentials

If the acting credentials do not have directory-level permission to perform the task, Active Directory PowerShell returns a terminating error.

-Instance<ADResourceProperty>

Specifies an instance of a resource property object to use as a template for a new resource property object.

You can use an instance of an existing resource property object as a template or you can construct a new resource property object by using the Windows PowerShell command line or by using a script. The following examples show how to use these two methods to create a new resource property object.

Method 1: Use an existing resource property object as a template for a new object. To retrieve an instance of an existing resource property object, use a cmdlet such as Get-ADResourceProperty. Then provide this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADResourceProperty cmdlet to create a new resource property object. You can override property values of the new object by setting the appropriate parameters.

$objectInstance = Get-ADResourceProperty -Identity "Country"

New-ADResourceProperty -Name "Region" -Instance $ObjectInstance

Method 2: Create a new ADResourceProperty and set the property values by using the Windows PowerShell command line interface. Then pass this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADResourceProperty cmdlet to create the new resource property object.

$objectInstance = new-object Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADResourceProperty

$objectInstance.Description = "Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)"

New-ADResourceProperty -Name "NDA" -Instance $ObjectInstance

Note: Specified attributes are not validated, so attempting to set attributes that do not exist or cannot be set will raise an error.

-Remove<Hashtable>

Specifies that the cmdlet remove values of an object property. Use this parameter to remove one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To remove an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can remove more than one property by specifying a semicolon-separated list. The format for this parameter is

-Remove @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value[]; Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value[]}

For example, if you want to add the values blue and green and remove the value pink from a property with a LDAP display name of FavColors, set the Add and Remove parameters as follows.

-Add @{FavColors=Blue,Green} -Remove {FavColors=Pink}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace and Clear parameters together, the parameters will be applied in the following sequence:

..Remove

..Add

..Replace

..Clear

-Replace<Hashtable>

Specifies values for an object property that will replace the current values. Use this parameter to replace one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can modify more than one property by specifying a comma-separated list. The format for this parameter is

-Replace @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value[], Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value[]}

For example, if you want to replace the value "555-222-2222" with the values "555-222-1111" for Phone-Office-Other attribute (LDAP display name 'otherTelephone') set the Replace parameter as follows.

-Replace @{otherTelephone='555-222-2222', '555-222-1111'}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

-Server<String>

Specifies the Active Directory Domain Services instance to connect to, by providing one of the following values for a corresponding domain name or directory server. The service may be any of the following: Active Directory Lightweight Domain Services, Active Directory Domain Services or Active Directory Snapshot instance.

Domain name values:

Fully qualified domain name

Examples: corp.contoso.com

NetBIOS name

Example: CORP

Directory server values:

NetBIOS name

Example: corp-DC12

Fully qualified directory server name and port

Example: corp-DC12.corp.contoso.com:3268

The default value for the Server parameter is determined by one of the following methods in the order that they are listed:

-By using Server value from objects passed through the pipeline.

-By using the server information associated with the Active Directory PowerShell provider drive, when running under that drive.

-By using the domain of the computer running Powershell.

The following example shows how to specify a full qualified domain name as the parameter value.

-Server "corp.contoso.com"

Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

Description

-----------

Set the suggested values of the resource property with display name 'Country' to 'US' and 'JP'. Applications using this resource property would allow their users to specify one of the suggested values as this resource property's value.


C:\PS>$us = New-Object Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADSuggestedValueEntry("US", "United States of America", "United States of America");$jp = New-Object Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADSuggestedValueEntry("JP", "Japan", "Japan");Set-ADResourceProperty Country -SuggestedValues $us,$jp

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

Description

-----------

Sets the resource property with display name 'Country' to reference an existing claim type named 'Country' for its suggested values. This enables the resource property to be always valid for comparisons with the referenced claim type in a central access rule.


C:\PS>Set-ADResourceProperty Country -SharesValuesWith Country
