Add-DnsServerSecondaryZone

Adds a DNS server secondary zone.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ForwardLookupZone
Add-DnsServerSecondaryZone [-Name] <String> [-ZoneFile] <String> [-MasterServers] <IPAddress[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-LoadExisting] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ReverseLookupZone
Add-DnsServerSecondaryZone [-ZoneFile] <String> [-MasterServers] <IPAddress[]> -NetworkId <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-LoadExisting] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-DnsServerSecondaryZone cmdlet adds a specified secondary zone on a Domain Name System (DNS) server. You can create either a forward lookup zone or a reverse lookup zone. To create a reverse lookup zone, specify a network ID by using the NetworkID parameter, or specify a full reverse lookup zone name by using the Name parameter.

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: Add a secondary DNS server zone

This command creates a secondary DNS zone named western.contoso.com with the specified master server. This zone is file-backed.


PS C:\> Add-DnsServerSecondaryZone -Name "western.contoso.com" -ZoneFile "western.contoso.com.dns" -MasterServers 172.23.90.124 

Example 2: Create secondary zones

This example gets primary zones from the server win-olpn33s5q3m.mytest.contoso.com and creates secondary zones (except TrustAnchors and AutoCreated zones) on the local system.


PS C:\> Get-DnsServerZone -ComputerName win-olpn33s5q3m.mytest.contoso.com | where {("Primary" -eq $_.ZoneType) -and ($false -eq $_.IsAutoCreated) -and ("TrustAnchors" -ne $_.ZoneName)} | %{ $_ | Add-DnsServerSecondaryZone -MasterServers 172.23.90.136  -ZoneFile "$($_.ZoneName).dns"}
