Updated: October 17, 2013

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

Set-DfsnServerConfiguration

Changes settings for a DFS namespace root server.

Syntax

Parameter Set: SetNamespaceServerConfig1
Set-DfsnServerConfiguration [-ComputerName] <String> [[-SyncIntervalSec] <UInt32> ] [[-EnableSiteCostedReferrals] <Boolean> ] [[-EnableInsiteReferrals] <Boolean> ] [[-LdapTimeoutSec] <UInt32> ] [[-PreferLogonDC] <Boolean> ] [[-UseFqdn] <Boolean> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-DfsnServerConfiguration cmdlet changes settings for a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace root server. A DFS namespace root server hosts one or more namespace root targets.

You can use this cmdlet to enable in-site referrals or to use cost in organizing referrals for targets in a site. You can also change the synchronization interval for servers that connect to a primary domain controller (PDC) emulator and change the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) time-out. You can specify whether referrals prefer the logon domain controller. You can also specify whether the server provides referrals as fully qualified domain names (FQDN) or NETBios names.

To see current values for these settings, use the Get-DfsnServerConfiguration cmdlet.

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.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

-EnableInsiteReferrals<Boolean>

Indicates whether this server provides only in-site referrals. If you assign a value of $True, the server returns only referrals for targets in the same site as the client. If you assign a value of $False, the server returns in-site referrals and other referrals.

-EnableSiteCostedReferrals<Boolean>

Indicates whether the server can use cost-based selection. If you specify a value of $True, the DFS namespace server provides referrals for folder targets to clients in the following order:

-- Folder targets in the same site as a client, in random order.
-- Folder targets for which the DFS namespace server has information. The referrals for the nearest site are first, in random order, followed by the next nearest site, in random order.
-- Targets for which DFS namespace server has no site information, in random order.

If you specify a value of $False, the DFS namespace server provides referrals for folder targets to clients in the following order:

-- Folder targets in the same site as the client, in random order.
-- Other folder targets, in random order.

-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.
