Set-DnsServerConditionalForwarderZone

Changes settings for a DNS conditional forwarder.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Parameters
Set-DnsServerConditionalForwarderZone [-Name] <String> [[-MasterServers] <IPAddress[]> ] [[-ForwarderTimeout] <UInt32> ] [[-UseRecursion] <Boolean> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ADZone
Set-DnsServerConditionalForwarderZone [-Name] <String> -ReplicationScope <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-DirectoryPartitionName <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-DnsServerConditionalForwarderZone cmdlet changes settings of an existing conditional forwarder on a Domain Name System (DNS) server. You can change the master servers, forwarder time-out, recursion, recursion scope, and directory partition name for a conditional forwarder 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 to host the forwarder. 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.

-ForwarderTimeout<UInt32>

Specifies a length of time, in seconds, that a DNS server waits for the forwarder to resolve a query. After the DNS server tries all forwarders, it can attempt to resolve the query itself. The minimum value is 0. The maximum value is 15.

-ReplicationScope<String>

Specifies the replication scope for the conditional forwarder. Conditional forwarders are stored internally as zones. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- Custom. Replicate the conditional forwarder to all DNS servers running on domain controllers enlisted in a custom directory partition.
-- Domain. Replicate the conditional forwarder to all DNS servers that run on domain controllers in the domain.
-- Forest. Replicate the conditional forwarder to all DNS servers that run on domain controllers in the forest.
-- Legacy. Replicate the conditional forwarder to all domain controllers in the domain.

-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.

-UseRecursion<Boolean>

Specifies whether a DNS server attempts to resolve a query after the forwarder fails to resolve it. A value of $False prevents a DNS server from attempting resolution using other DNS servers. This parameter overrides the Use Recursion setting for a DNS server.

Examples

Example 1: Change forwarder time-out for a zone

This command changes the forwarder time-out for a forwarder zone named contoso.com.


PS C:\> Set-DnsServerConditionalForwarderZone -Name "contoso.com" -ForwarderTimeout 15

Example 2: Change replication scope for a zone

This command changes the replication scope of contoso.com to a value of Domain, which means all DNS servers in the domain. This example uses the PassThru parameter to create output.


PS C:\> Set-DnsServerConditionalForwarderZone -Name "contoso.com" -ReplicationScope "Domain" -PassThru
