Updated: March 26, 2014

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Server 2012 R2

Set-ADReplicationConnection

Sets properties on Active Directory replication connections.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Identity
Set-ADReplicationConnection [-Identity] <ADReplicationConnection> [-Add <Hashtable> ] [-AuthType <ADAuthType> {Negotiate | Basic} ] [-Clear <String[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-PassThru] [-Remove <Hashtable> ] [-Replace <Hashtable> ] [-ReplicateFromDirectoryServer <ADDirectoryServer> ] [-ReplicationSchedule <ActiveDirectorySchedule> ] [-Server <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: Instance
Set-ADReplicationConnection -Instance <ADReplicationConnection> [-AuthType <ADAuthType> {Negotiate | Basic} ] [-Clear <String[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-PassThru] [-Server <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-ADReplicationConnection cmdlet sets properties on Active Directory replication connections. Connections are used to enable domain controllers to replicate with each other. A connection defines a one-way, inbound route from one domain controller, the source, to another domain controller, the destination. The Kerberos consistency checker (KCC) reuses existing connections where it can, deletes unused connections, and creates new connections if none exist that meet the current need.

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, ...}

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

-- Remove
-- Add
-- Replace
-- Clear

-Identity<ADReplicationConnection>

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
-- Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADDomain

-Instance<ADReplicationConnection>

Specifies an instance of an Active Directory object to use as a template for a new Active Directory object.

You can use an instance of an existing Active Directory object as a template or you can construct a new Active Directory object by using the Windows PowerShell command line or by using a script.

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

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

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[]}

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

-- Remove
-- Add
-- Replace
-- Clear

-ReplicationSchedule<ActiveDirectorySchedule>

Specifies the schedule on which the source server is available for replication.

Replication occurs at intervals that administrators can schedule so that use of expensive WAN links is managed. Use this parameter to specify the replication intervals. For more information on how replication topology works, see How Active Directory Replication Topology Works (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=223932) on TechNet.

To specify the replication schedule,

1. Create a new Active Directory schedule object.

Example:

$schedule = New-Object -TypeName System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.ActiveDirectorySchedule;

2. Edit the schedule on the Active Directory schedule object.

Example:

$schedule.ResetSchedule();

$schedule.SetDailySchedule("Twenty","Zero","TwentyTwo","Thirty");

3. Using the Active Directory schedule object, set the replication schedule of the connection

Set-ADReplicationConnection "5f98e288-19e0-47a0-9677-57f05ed54f6b" -ReplicationSchedule $schedule

For more information on the ActiveDirectorySchedule class, see ActiveDirectorySchedule Class (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=223933) on the Microsoft Developer Network.

-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.

Specify the Active Directory Domain Services instance in one of the following ways:

-- Domain name values:

---- Fully qualified domain name
---- NetBIOS name

-- Directory server values:

---- Fully qualified directory server name
---- NetBIOS name
---- Fully qualified directory server name and port

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

-- By using the Server value from objects passed through the pipeline
-- By using the server information associated with the Active Directory Domain ServicesWindows PowerShell provider drive, when the cmdlet runs in that drive
-- By using the domain of the computer running Windows PowerShell

Examples

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

This command sets the replication connection with name 5f98e288-19e0-47a0-9677-57f05ed54f6b to replicate from corp-DC01.


PS C:\> Set-ADReplicationConnection -Identity "5f98e288-19e0-47a0-9677-57f05ed54f6b" -ReplicateFromDirectoryServer corp-DC01

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

This example gets all the replication connections in the directory that replicate from corp-DC01, and then sets the daily replication schedule on these connection objects.


PS C:\> $schedule = New-Object -TypeName System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.ActiveDirectorySchedule
PS C:\> $schedule.ResetSchedule()
PS C:\> $schedule.SetDailySchedule("Twenty","Zero","TwentyTwo","Thirty")
PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationConnection -Filter {ReplicateFromDirectoryServer -eq "corp-DC01"} -Properties ReplicationSchedule | % {Set-ADReplicationConnection $_ - ReplicationSchedule $schedule}
