Get-DfsnFolder

Gets settings for a DFS namespace folder.

Syntax

Parameter Set: GetNamespaceFolder0
Get-DfsnFolder [-Path] <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-DfsnRoot cmdlet gets configuration settings for a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace folder. Specify a folder by using its path.

For more information about DFS namespaces, see Overview of DFS Namespaces (http://technet.microsoft.com/library/cc730736) on TechNet.

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.
