Reset-DnsServerZoneKeyMasterRole

Updated: January 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Reset-DnsServerZoneKeyMasterRole

Transfers the role of Key Master for a DNS zone.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Reset0
Reset-DnsServerZoneKeyMasterRole [-ZoneName] <String> [[-KeyMasterServer] <String> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Force] [-PassThru] [-SeizeRole] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Reset-DnsServerZoneKeyMasterRole cmdlet transfers the role of DNS Security (DNSSEC) Key Master server. Any authoritative Domain Name System (DNS) server that hosts a primary copy of the zone can be the Key Master server.

This cmdlet attempts to connect to the current Key Master server. If it cannot connect to that server, the cmdlet does not make the change unless you specify SeizeRole.

This cmdlet prompts the user for confirmation before it transfers the role unless you use the Force switch.

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.

The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Examples

Example 1: Transfer the role

This command transfers the Key Master role for the zone named west01.contoso.com to the server named keys.contoso.com. If the cmdlet cannot verify with the current Key Master server, it does not transfer the role.


PS C:\> Reset-DnsServerZoneKeyMasterRole -ZoneName "west01.contoso.com" -KeyMasterServer "root.contoso.com" 

Example 2: Transfer the role, required

This command transfers the Key Master role for the zone named west01.contoso.com to a server named keys.contoso.com. If the cmdlet cannot verify with the current Key Master server, the cmdlet nevertheless transfers the role.


PS C:\> Reset-DnsServerZoneKeyMasterRole -ZoneName "west01.contoso.com" -KeyMasterServer "keys.contoso.com" -SeizeRole
