Set-DAMultiSite

Configures global settings for all entry points in a multi-site deployment.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Set3
Set-DAMultiSite [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-GslbFqdn <String> ] [-ManualEntryPointSelectionAllowed <String> ] [-Name <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-DAMultiSite cmdlet configures global multi-site settings that are applied to all entry points, including:
-- The name of an entry point server included in the multi-site deployment.
-- The global load balancing fully qualified domain name (FQDN), if required.
-- Support for remote clients to manually select the entry point to which the clients connect.
-- The name of the 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.

Outputs

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

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#DAMultiSite

    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 DAMultiSite object contains the following properties:
    -- Multi-site deployment name.
    -- Multi-site deployment entry points with a list of servers associated with each entry point.
    -- Global load balancing FQDN, if required.
    -- Support for remote clients to manually select the entry point to which the clients connect.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example enables users to manually select entry points when using the Windows Server 2012 Network connectivity assistant.


PS C:\> Set-DAMultiSite -ManualEntryPointSelection enabled –PassTrue

EnterpriseName                   : Company Enterprise 
GslbFqdn                         : 
ManualEntryPointSelectionAllowed : Enabled 
DAEntryPoints                    : Entry Point 1 

EXAMPLE 2

This example sets the FQDN of a third-party load balancer named directaccessglobalsite.contoso.com.


PS C:\> Set-DAMultiSite -GslbFqdn "directaccessGlobalSite.contoso.com" -PassTrue

EnterpriseName                   : Company Enterprise 
GslbFqdn                         : directaccessglobalsite.contoso.com 
ManualEntryPointSelectionAllowed : Enabled 
DAEntryPoints                    : Entry Point 1 

EXAMPLE 3

This example erases the previously defined FQDN of a third-party load balancer.


PS C:\> Set-DAMultiSite -ManualSiteSelection enabled -GslbFqdn "" -PassThru

EnterpriseName                   : Company Enterprise 
GslbFqdn                         : 
ManualEntryPointSelectionAllowed : Enabled 
DAEntryPoints                    : Entry Point 1
