The cmdlet parses the byte array(s) and returns the data in a readable format.

Parameters

-AuthType<ADAuthType>

-Credential<PSCredential>

Specifies a user account that has permission to perform this action. The default is the current user.

-Filter<String>

Specifies a filter in the provider's format or language. The value of this parameter qualifies the Path parameter. The syntax of the filter, including the use of wildcards, depends on the provider. Filters are more efficient than other parameters, because the provider applies them when retrieving the objects, rather than having Windows PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved.

-IncludeDeletedObjects

Specifies to retrieve deleted objects and the deactivated forward and backward links. When this parameter is specified, the cmdlet uses the following LDAP controls:

-- Show Deleted Objects (1.2.840.113556.1.4.417)
-- Show Deactivated Links (1.2.840.113556.1.4.2065)

Note: If this parameter is not specified, the cmdlet will not return or operate on deleted objects.

-Object<ADObject>

Specifies an Active Directory object by providing one of the following property values. The identifier in parentheses is the LDAP display name for the attribute.The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- A Distinguished Name
-- A GUID (objectGUID)

The cmdlet searches the default naming context or partition to find the object. If two or more objects are found, the cmdlet returns a non-terminating error.

This parameter can also get this object through the pipeline or you can set this parameter to an object instance.

Derived types, such as the following are also accepted:

-- Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADGroup
-- Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADUser
-- Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADComputer
-- Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADServiceAccount
-- Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy

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.

  • Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADObject

    A class structure that represents the Active Directory objects.


Outputs

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

  • Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADReplicationAttributeMetadata

    A class structure that represents Active Directory replication attribute metadata objects.


Notes

  • The default behavior for this cmdlet is to prompt for object identity. Other tools that have been provided to manage this feature in previous releases of Windows Server include the Repadmin.exe command-line tool.

Examples

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

This command gets the replication metadata for the attributes of a group with Distinguished Name "CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=corp,DC=contoso,DC=com" from the CORP-DC01 domain controller. By including the ShowAllLinkedValues parameter if a multi-valued attribute is present, all its linked values are also retrieved.


PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationAttributeMetadata -Object "CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=corp,DC=contoso,DC=com" -Server corp-DC01 -ShowAllLinkedValues

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

This command gets the replication metadata for the attributes of an object with GUID 1A7BFEC6-C92C-4804-94B0-D407E51F1B64, including the deleted objects and the deactivated forward and backward links.


PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationAttributeMetadata -Object "1A7BFEC6-C92C-4804-94B0-D407E51F1B64" -Server corp-DC01 -IncludeDeletedObjects

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 3 --------------------------

This command gets all groups that have any of their attributes modified on 11/10/2011.


PS C:\> Get-ADObject -Filter 'objectclass -eq "group"' | Get-ADReplicationAttributeMetadata -Server corp-DC01 | Where-Object {$_.lastoriginatingchangetime -like "*11/10/2011*"} | Format-Table object
