Add-DnsServerResourceRecordPtr

Updated: January 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Add-DnsServerResourceRecordPtr

Adds a type PTR resource record to a DNS server.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Add0
Add-DnsServerResourceRecordPtr [-ZoneName] <String> [-Name] <String> [-PtrDomainName] <String> [-AgeRecord] [-AllowUpdateAny] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-TimeToLive <TimeSpan> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-DnsServerResourceRecordPtr cmdlet adds a specified pointer (PTR) record to a specified Domain Name System (DNS) zone.

PTR resource records support reverse lookup based on the in-addr.arpa domain. PTR records locate a computer by its IP address and resolve the address to the DNS domain name for that computer.

Parameters

-AgeRecord

Indicates that the DNS server uses a time stamp for the resource record that this cmdlet adds. A DNS server can scavenge resource records that have become stale based on a time stamp.

-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[]>

-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.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

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

  • System.Management.ManagementBaseObject

Outputs

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

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#DnsServerResourceRecord

Examples

Example 1: Add a PTR record

This command adds a type PTR DNS record in the zone named contoso.com. The record maps IP address 192.168.0.17 to the name host17.contoso.com. The command includes the AllowUpdateAny and AgeRecord parameters, and provides a TTL value. Because the command includes the AgeRecord parameter, a DNS server can scavenge this record.


PS C:\> Add-DnsServerResourceRecordPtr -Name "17" -ZoneName "0.168.192.in-addr.arpa" -AllowUpdateAny -TimeToLive 01:00:00 -AgeRecord -PtrDomainName "host17.contoso.com"
