Examples

Example 1: Change the dynamic update setting

This command changes the dynamic update setting to NonsecureAndSecure for the zone named western.contoso.com. The example uses the PassThru parameter to return output.


PS C:\> Set-DnsServerPrimaryZone -Name "western.contoso.com" -DynamicUpdate "NonsecureAndSecure" -PassThru
ZoneName                            ZoneType        IsAutoCreated   IsDsIntegrated  IsReverseLookupZone  IsSigned

-------- -------- ------------- -------------- ------------------- --------

western.contoso.com Primary False True False False

Example 2: Change the replication scope

This command changes the replication scope of the zone named western.contoso.com. The example uses the PassThru parameter to return output.


PS C:\> Set-DnsServerPrimaryZone -Name "western.contoso.com" -ReplicationScope "Forest" -PassThru
ZoneName                            ZoneType        IsAutoCreated   IsDsIntegrated  IsReverseLookupZone  IsSigned

-------- -------- ------------- -------------- ------------------- --------

western.contoso.com Primary False True False False

Example 3: Change the name for the zone file

This command changes the file name for the zone file for the zone western.contoso.com. The example uses the PassThru parameter to return output.


PS C:\> Set-DnsServerPrimaryZone -Name "western.contoso.com" -ZoneFile "tet23.dns" -PassThru
ZoneName                            ZoneType        IsAutoCreated   IsDsIntegrated  IsReverseLookupZone  IsSigned
