Invoke-DnsServerZoneSign

Updated: January 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Invoke-DnsServerZoneSign

Signs a DNS server zone.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Invoke0
Invoke-DnsServerZoneSign [-ZoneName] <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-DoResign] [-Force] [-PassThru] [-SignWithDefault] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Invoke-DnsServerZoneSign cmdlet signs a Domain Name System (DNS) server zone.

If the zone is not already signed, use the SignWithDefault parameter, which results in the zone being signed with one Zone Signing Keys (ZSK) and one Key Signing Key (KSK) using default DNS Security (DNSSEC) settings. If the zone is already signed, use the DoResign parameter. If you use both the SignWithDefault parameter and the DoResign parameter on a signed zone, the cmdlet removes the existing zone signing keys, and re-signs the zone using default 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.

-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.
