Detailed Description

The Get-DfsnRoot cmdlet gets configuration settings for Distributed File System (DFS) namespaces. You can specify DFS namespaces by using a standalone or domain-based namespace path, by using a server, or by using a domain. Use this cmdlet without parameters to see information on all DFS namespaces. You can make changes to DFS settings by using the Set-DfsnRoot cmdlet.

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.
