Get-ADReplicationQueueOperation

Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Get-ADReplicationQueueOperation

Returns the contents of the replication queue for a specified server.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Get-ADReplicationQueueOperation [-Server] <String> [[-Partition] <String[]> ] [-AuthType <ADAuthType> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-Filter <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-ADReplicationQueueOperation cmdlet returns all of the pending operations in the replication queue. While replication operations are pending, this cmdlet can be useful for determining the status of queued operations.

The Get-ADReplicationQueueOperation cmdlet can be called from script to watch and observe when operations get moved out of the queue as they are replicated. It also allows for filtering on any of the properties on the ADReplicationOperation object.

The replication queue operates in the following manner: suppose a domain controller has five inbound replication connections. As the domain controller formulates change requests, either by a schedule being reached or from a notification, it adds a work item for each request to the end of the queue of pending synchronization requests. Each pending synchronization request represents one <source domain controller, directory partition> pair, such as "synchronize the schema directory partition from DC1," or "delete the ApplicationX directory partition."

When a work item has been received into the queue, notification and polling intervals do not apply. Instead, the domain controller processes the item (begins synchronizing from its source) as soon as the work item reaches the front of the replication queue. This process continues until either the destination is fully synchronized with the source domain controller, an error occurs, or the synchronization is pre-empted by a higher-priority operation.

Parameters

-AuthType<ADAuthType>

Specifies the authentication method to use. Possible values for this parameter include:

Negotiate or 0

Basic or 1

The default authentication method is Negotiate.

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection is required for the Basic authentication method.

The following example shows how to set this parameter to Basic.

-AuthType Basic

Default Value

Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.AuthType.Negotiate

false

-Credential<PSCredential>

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

Type a user name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01", or enter a PSCredential object, such as one generated by the Get-Credential cmdlet. If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password.

This parameter is not supported by any providers installed with Windows PowerShell.

Default Value

none

false

-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.

Default Value

Accept Wildcard Characters?

false

-Partition<String[]>

Specifies the distinguished name of an Active Directory partition. The distinguished name must be one of the naming contexts on the current directory server. The cmdlet searches this partition to find the object defined by the Identity parameter.

The following two examples show how to specify a value for this parameter.

-Partition "CN=Configuration,DC=EUROPE,DC=TEST,DC=CONTOSO,DC=COM"

-Partition "CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=EUROPE,DC=TEST,DC=CONTOSO,DC=COM"

In many cases, a default value will be used for the Partition parameter if no value is specified. The rules for determining the default value are given below. Note that rules listed first are evaluated first and once a default value can be determined, no further rules will be evaluated.

In AD DS environments, a default value for Partition will be set in the following cases: - If the Identity parameter is set to a distinguished name, the default value of Partition is automatically generated from this distinguished name.

- If running cmdlets from an Active Directory provider drive, the default value of Partition is automatically generated from the current path in the drive.

- If none of the previous cases apply, the default value of Partition will be set to the default partition or naming context of the target domain.

In AD LDS environments, a default value for Partition will be set in the following cases:

- If the Identity parameter is set to a distinguished name, the default value of Partition is automatically generated from this distinguished name.

- If running cmdlets from an Active Directory provider drive, the default value of Partition is automatically generated from the current path in the drive.

- If the target AD LDS instance has a default naming context, the default value of Partition will be set to the default naming context. To specify a default naming context for an AD LDS environment, set the msDS-defaultNamingContext property of the Active Directory directory service agent (DSA) object (nTDSDSA) for the AD LDS instance.

- If none of the previous cases apply, the Partition parameter will not take any default value.

Default Value

DefaultNC; Provider: Default is to use the Partition that you are currently in. Else, use DefaultNC (IE: If you are in the RootDSE)

Accept Pipeline Input?

false

Accept Wildcard Characters?

false

-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:

Fully qualified directory server name

Example: corp-DC12.corp.contoso.com

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 Windows PowerShell.

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

-Server "corp.contoso.com"
