Test-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccountCreation

Runs the prerequisites (only) for adding a read-only domain controller (RODC) account.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccount
Test-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccountCreation -DomainControllerAccountName <String> -DomainName <String> -SiteName <String> [-AllowPasswordReplicationAccountName <String[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-DelegatedAdministratorAccountName <String> ] [-DenyPasswordReplicationAccountName <String[]> ] [-Force] [-InstallDns] [-NoGlobalCatalog] [-ReplicationSourceDC <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Test-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccountCreation cmdlet runs the prerequisite checks (only) which would be performed if you were to add a read-only domain controller (RODC) account in Active Directory using the Add-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccount cmdlet. It differs from using the -WhatIf parameter with the Add-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccount cmdlet in that instead of summarizing the changes that would occur during the account creation process, this cmdlet actually tests whether those changes are possible given the current environment.

Parameters

-AllowPasswordReplicationAccountName<String[]>

Specifies the names of user accounts, group accounts, and computer accounts whose passwords can be replicated to this RODC. Use "None" if you want to keep the value empty. By default, only the Allowed RODC Password Replication Group is allowed, and it is originally created empty.
