Detailed Description

The Add-DnsServerPrimaryZone cmdlet adds a specified primary zone on a Domain Name System (DNS) server.

You can add an Active Directory-integrated forward lookup zone, an Active Directory-integrated reverse lookup zone, a file-backed forward lookup zone, or a file-backed reverse lookup zone.

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.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-ComputerName<String>

Specifies a DNS server. If you do not specify this parameter, the command runs on the local system. You can specify an IP address or any value that resolves to an IP address, such as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), host name, or NETBIOS name.

-- Secure
-- NonsecureAndSecure

Secure DNS updates are available only for Active Directory-integrated zones.

-NetworkId<String>

Specifies a network ID and prefix length for a reverse lookup zone. Use the format A.B.C.D/prefix.

The cmdlet creates only class A, B, C, or D zones. If you specify a prefix that is between classes, the cmdlet uses the longer prefix divisible by 8. For example, a value of 10.2.10.0/23 results in the 10.2.10.0/24 reverse lookup zone, not the 10.2.11.0/24 reverse lookup zone. If you enter a prefix longer than /24, the cmdlet creates a /32 reverse lookup zone.

-ReplicationScope<String>

Specifies a partition on which to store an Active Directory-integrated zone. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- Custom. Any custom directory partition that a user creates. Specify a custom directory partition by using the DirectoryPartitionName parameter.
-- Domain. The domain directory partition.
-- Forest. The ForestDnsZone directory partition.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Examples

Example 1: Create a primary zone

This command creates an Active Directory-integrated forward lookup zone called west01.contoso.com with Forest-wide replication scope.


PS C:\> Add-DnsServerPrimaryZone -Name "west01.contoso.com" -ReplicationScope "Forest" -PassThru 

Example 2: Create a file-backed primary zone

This command creates a file-backed primary forward lookup zone called west02.contoso.com with the specified DNS file.


PS C:\> Add-DnsServerPrimaryZone -Name "west02.contoso.com" -ZoneFile "west02.contoso.com.dns"

Example 3: Create a reverse lookup zone

This command creates the Active Directory-integrated class C reverse lookup zone 0.1.10.in-addr.arpa with Forest-wide replication scope.


PS C:\> Add-DnsServerPrimaryZone -NetworkID "10.1.0.0/24" -ReplicationScope "Forest" 
ZoneName                            ZoneType        IsAutoCreated   IsDsIntegrated  IsReverseLookupZone  IsSigned

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

1.10.in-addr.arpa Primary False True True False

Example 4: Create a file-backed reverse lookup zone

This command creates the file-backed reverse lookup zone 0.3.10.in-addr.arpa.


PS C:\> Add-DnsServerPrimaryZone -NetworkID 10.3.0.0/24 -ZoneFile "0.3.10.in-addr.arpa.dns"
