Set-DAClientDnsConfiguration

Updated: August 15, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Set-DAClientDnsConfiguration

Configures the DNS server and proxy server addresses of a Name Resolution Policy Table (NRPT) entry and configures the local name resolution property.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Set3
Set-DAClientDnsConfiguration [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-DnsIPAddress <String[]> ] [-DnsSuffix <String> ] [-Local <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ProxyServer <String> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-DAClientDnsConfiguration cmdlet configures the DNS server and proxy server addresses of a Name Resolution Policy Table (NRPT) entry and configures the local name resolution property.

To modify an NRPT entry the user needs to specify the DNS suffix, the new DNS IP address or the proxy server, or the new DNS IP address and the proxy server for this suffix. To modify the local name resolution setting the Local parameter is used.

When an NRPT entry or local name resolution property is modified in a multi-domain scenario, it is correspondingly updated in all of the client Group Policy Objects (GPOs) in various domains. This is true for multi-site and Windows Server® 2008 R2 GPOs as well.

The NRPT configuration is applicable globally to the entire DirectAccess (DA) deployment and therefore is not impacted by multi-site deployment.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

-Local<String>

Specifies the property of the local name resolution. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 
-- FallbackSecure: Only use local name resolution if the name does not exist in DNS, which is most restrictive.
-- FallbackPrivate: Fall back to local name resolution if the name does not exist in the DNS or the DNS servers are unreachable when the client computer is on a private network, which is recommended.
-- FallbackUnsecure: Fall back to local name resolution for any kind of DNS resolution error, which is least secure.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

<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.

  • None

Outputs

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

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#DAClientDnsConfiguration

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
    The DAClientDnsConfiguration object contains the following properties:
    -- The NRPT entries in the NRPT table: each entry is an instance of the DnsClientNrptRule object.
    -- The DnsClientNrptGlobal object which contains the local name resolution settings.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example will change the list of configured DNS Servers for contoso.com to 2006:2005:1::3. These changes will be made in all of the DA client GPOs.


PS C:\> Set-DAClientDNSConfiguration -DNSSuffix 'contoso.com' -DnsIPAddress 2006:2005:1::3

EXAMPLE 2

This example configures a proxy server for suffix contoso.com. Since NRPT entry settings in DA are global, this change will apply to all of the DA clients.


PS C:\> Set-DAClientDNSConfiguration -DNSSuffix 'contoso.com' -ProxyServer 'webproxy.contoso.com:400'

EXAMPLE 3

This example configures local name resolution to FallbackSecure, therefore ensuring that local name resolution is used only if the resource name does not exist in DNS.


PS C:\> Set-DAClientDnsConfiguration -Local 'FallbackSecure'
