Generates reports for propagation test files in a replication group.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Write-DfsrPropagationReport [-GroupName] <String[]> [-FolderName] <String[]> [-ReferenceComputerName] <String> [[-Path] <String> ] [[-FileCount] <Int32> ] [[-DomainName] <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Write-DfsrPropagationReport cmdlet generates reports for the replication progress of propagation test files in a replication group. Specify the replication group, replicated folder, and a member computer to act as the reference computer.

The cmdlet creates files named Propagation-<RG Name>-<Date>-<Time>.html and Propagation-<RG Name>-<Date>-<Time>.xml. You can specify a folder to save these files to, or use the current working directory.

Use the Start-DfsrPropagationTest cmdlet to create a propagation test file.

Parameters

-DomainName<String>

Specifies the NetBIOS name or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the Active Directory Domain Service (AD DS) domain that contains the replication group. If you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet uses the domain of the current user.

Examples

Example 1: Create a propagation report for a specific group and replicated folder

This command creates a propagation report, as HTML and XML files, in the folder C:\Reports. The command specifies SRV01 as reference computer and specifies group name and folder name.


PS C:\> Write-DfsrPropagationReport -GroupName "RG01" -FolderName "RF22" -ReferenceComputerName "SRV01" -Path "C:\Reports"

Example 2: Create propagation reports for all groups and replicated folders by using wildcards

This command creates propagation reports for all replicated folders in all replication groups by using a wildcard character (*) for the GroupName and FolderName parameters. The command specifies SRV01 as the reference computer. This command uses the Verbose parameter to display information to the console.
