Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1

Updated: September 24, 2014

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

Set-DAEntryPointDC

Modifies domain controller (DC) settings for the entry point.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ChangeByDCName
Set-DAEntryPointDC -ExistingDC <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-Force] [-NewDC <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ChangeByEntryPoint
Set-DAEntryPointDC -EntryPointName <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-Force] [-NewDC <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-DAEntryPointDC cmdlet modifies domain controller (DC) settings for entry points, and can be used to the following:
-- Assigns a DC to all entry points previously assigned to the DC specified in the ExistingDC parameter. This is useful when a DC is no longer reachable and entry points settings must be updated.
-- Assigns a DC to a specific entry point. This is useful for optimization, such as improving the Group Policy propagation time by specifying a DC that is located within the same Active Directory site as the other servers in an entry point.

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.

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#DADomainController[]

    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 array of DADomainController objects that contains the following properties:
    -- ChangeByDCName: Provides a list of entry points for which the associated DCs have been changed, and the name of the new DC. The ExistingDC parameter has a specified value. The EntryPointName parameter does not have a specified value.
    -- ChangeByEntryPoint: Provides information about the specified entry point and its updated DC. The ExistingDC parameter does not have a specified value. The EntryPointName parameter has a specified value.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example associates Entry Point 1 with the DC named dc3.domain1.corp.contoso.com.


PS C:\> Set-DAEntryPointDC –EntryPointName "Entry Point 1" –NewDC "DC3.Domain1.corp.company.com" –Force –PassThru
EntryPointName       : Entry Point 1 
DomainControllerName : dc3.domain1.corp.contoso.com 

EXAMPLE 2

This example automatically picks the DC named dc3.domain1.corp.contoso.com is the closest to the server named da1.domain1.corp.contoso.com and associate the DC with Entry Point 1, because the NewDC parameter is not specified.


PS C:\> Set-DAEntryPointDC –EntryPointName "Entry Point 1" -ComputerName "da1.domain1.corp.contoso.com" –Force -PassThru
EntryPointName       : Entry Point 1 
DomainControllerName : dc3.domain1.corp.contoso.com 

EXAMPLE 3

This example associates all of the entry points which were previously associated with the DC named dc1.domain1.corp.contoso.com with the DC named dc3.domain1.corp.contoso.com.


PS C:\> Set-DAEntryPointDC –ExistingDC "dc1.domain1.corp.contoso.com" -NewDC "dc3.domain1.corp.contoso.com" –Force -PassThru
EntryPointName       : Entry Point 1 
DomainControllerName : dc3.domain1.corp.contoso.com
