Updated: January 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Set-DnsServerSetting

Modifies DNS server settings.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Set0
Set-DnsServerSetting [[-InputObject] <CimInstance> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-DnsServerSetting cmdlet modifies Domain Name System (DNS) server settings.

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.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.



  • "Class: DNSServerSettings {

    string Name; //Specifies the FQDN or IP address of a DNS server. This specification should be common across roles.

    uint32 Version; //Specifies the read-only version of the DNS server.

    sint32 RpcProtocol; //Specifies the remote procedure call (RPC) protocol or protocols over which administrative RPC runs.

    uint32 NameCheckFlag; //Specifies the set of eligible characters to use in DNS server names.

    uint32 AddressAnswerLimit; //Specifies the maximum number of host records that are returned in response to an address request. Values of 5 through 28 are valid.

    uint32 BootMethod; //Specifies the initialization method for a DNS server.

    boolean DsAvailable; //Indicates whether an available directory service is on the DNS server.

    boolean DisableAutoReverseZones; //Indicates whether the DNS server automatically creates standard reverse lookup zones.

    boolean RoundRobin; //Indicates whether the DNS server uses the round robin mechanism to rotate the order of multiple address (A) records.

    boolean LooseWildcarding ;//Indicates whether the DNS server uses loose wildcards. If undefined or zero, the server follows the wildcard behavior that is specified in the DNS RFC. In this case, an administrator should include mail exchanger (MX) records for all hosts that cannot receive mail. If nonzero, the server seeks the closest wildcard node and an administrator should put MX records at the zone root and in a wildcard node (*) directly below the zone root. Administrators should also put self-referencing MX records on hosts that receive their own mail.

    boolean WriteAuthorityNS; //Indicates whether the DNS server writes name server (NS) and start of authority (SOA) records to the authority section on successful response.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#DnsServerSetting

Examples

Example 1: Copy DNS server settings from one DNS server to another

This command copies DNS server settings from the DNS server that has an IP address of 172.23.90.136 to the local DNS server.
