Updated: April 8, 2014

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Server 2012 R2

Set-DnsServerZoneAging

Configures DNS aging settings for a zone.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Set1
Set-DnsServerZoneAging [-Name] <String> [[-Aging] <Boolean> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-NoRefreshInterval <TimeSpan> ] [-PassThru] [-RefreshInterval <TimeSpan> ] [-ScavengeServers <IPAddress[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-DnsServerZoneAging cmdlet configures aging settings for a Domain Name System (DNS) server zone.

A resource record can remain on a DNS server after the resource is no longer part of the network. Aging settings determine when a record can be removed, or scavenged, as a stale record.

Parameters

-Aging<Boolean>

Indicates whether to enable aging and scavenging for a zone. Aging and scavenging are not enabled by default.

For a value of $True, a DNS server refreshes time stamps for resource records when the server receives a dynamic update request. This enables DNS servers to scavenge resource records.

For a value of $False, DNS servers do not refresh time stamps for resource records and do not scavenge resource records.

-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. 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.

-NoRefreshInterval<TimeSpan>

Specifies the length of time as a TimeSpan object. This value is the interval between the last update of a timestamp for a record and the earliest time when the timestamp can be refreshed. The minimum value is 0. The maximum value is 8760 hours.

-RefreshInterval<TimeSpan>

Specifies the refresh interval as a TimeSpan object. During this interval, a DNS server can refresh a resource record that has a non-zero time stamp.

If a resource record that has a non-zero time stamp is not refreshed for a period of the sum the values defined in the NoRefreshInterval parameter and the RefreshInterval parameter, a DNS server can remove that record during the next scavenging.

Do not select a value smaller than the longest refresh period of a resource record registered in the zone.

The minimum value is 0. The maximum value is 8760 hours. The default value is the same as the DefaultRefreshInterval property of the zone DNS server.

-ScavengeServers<IPAddress[]>

Specifies an array of IP addresses for DNS servers. These servers can scavenge records in this zone. If you do not specify any scavenge servers, any primary DNS server that is authoritative for the zone can scavenge.

-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.
