Add-DnsServerForwarder

Adds server level forwarders to a DNS server.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Add0
Add-DnsServerForwarder [-IPAddress] <IPAddress[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-DnsServerForwarder cmdlet adds one or more forwarders to a DNS server's forwarders list. If you prefer one of the forwarders, put that forwarder first in the series of forwarder IP addresses. After you first use this cmdlet to add forwarders to a DNS server, this cmdlet adds forwarders to the end of the forwarders list.

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.
