Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1

Updated: December 20, 2013

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

Set-DhcpServerv4Failover

Modifies the properties of an existing failover relationship.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Set1
Set-DhcpServerv4Failover [-Name] <String> [-AsJob] [-AutoStateTransition <Boolean> ] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-Force] [-LoadBalancePercent <UInt32> ] [-MaxClientLeadTime <TimeSpan> ] [-Mode <String> ] [-PartnerDown] [-PassThru] [-ReservePercent <UInt32> ] [-SharedSecret <String> ] [-StateSwitchInterval <TimeSpan> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-DhcpServerv4Failover cmdlet modifies the properties of an existing failover relationship.

If the failover mode of relation is load balance or is being changed to load balance , then the LoadBalancePercent, MaxClientLeadTime, StateSwitchInterval, AutoStateTransition, and SharedSecret parameters can be specified.

If the failover mode of relation is hot standby or is being changed to hot standby, then the ReservePercent, MaxClientLeadTime, StateSwitchInterval, AutoStateTransition, and SharedSecret parameters can be specified.

If the SharedSecret parameter value is Null, then enableauth will be set to False in the data structure. If the SharedSecret parameter is not Null, then enableauth will be set to True in the data structure.

If the SharedSecret parameter is specified, then confirmation will be sought from the user to transport the shared secret in the clear text on the network.

If you specify the Mode parameter to change the mode of the failover relationship, default confirmation will be sought.

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.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example modifies the parameters of the load balance failover relationship named SFO-SIN-Failover on the computer named dhcpserver.contoso.com as follows: 70% of the client requests will be served by the DHCP server service running on the computer named dhcpserver.contoso.com and 30% of the client requests will be served by the DHCP server service running on the computer named dhcpserver2.contoso.com. The maximum client lead time for the failover relationship is set to 2 hours. The automatic state transition from the COMMUNICATION INTERRUPTED state to the PARTNER DOWN state is enabled and the timer for automatic state transition is set to 2 hours.


PS C:\> Set-DhcpServerv4Failover -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -Name SFO-SIN-Failover -LoadBalancePercent 70 -MaxClientLeadTime 2:00:00 -AutoStateTransition True -StateSwitchInterval 2:00:00

EXAMPLE 2

This example modifies the parameters of the hot standby failover relationship named SFO-SIN-Failover on computer named dhcpserver.contoso.com as follows: 10% of the free IP addresses in the scopes will be reserved for the standby DHCP server service. The maximum client lead time for the failover relationship is set to 2 hours. The automatic state transition from the COMMUNICATION INTERRUPTED state to the PARTNER DOWN state is enabled and the timer for automatic state transition is set to 2 hours.


PS C:\> Set-DhcpServerv4Failover -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -Name SFO-SIN-Failover -ReservePercent 10 -MaxClientLeadTime 2:00:00 -AutoStateTransition True -StateSwitchInterval 2:00:00

EXAMPLE 3

This example changes the mode of the failover relationship SFO-SIN-Failover to LoadBalance. The computer named dhcpserver.contoso.com serves 60 percent of the clients.


PS C:\> Set-DhcpServerv4Failover -Name SFO-SIN-Failover -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -Mode LoadBalance -LoadBalancePercent 60
