Get-ADDCCloningExcludedApplicationList

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/26/2017

SYNOPSIS

Gets a list of installed programs and services present on this domain controller that are not in the default or user defined inclusion list.

SYNTAX

Default (Default)

Get-ADDCCloningExcludedApplicationList [<CommonParameters>]

Xml

Get-ADDCCloningExcludedApplicationList [-Force] [-GenerateXml] [-Path <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-ADDCCloningExcludedApplicationList cmdlet searches the local domain controller for programs and services in the installed programs database, the services control manager that are not specified in the default and user defined inclusion list. The applications in the resulting list can be added to the user defined exclusion list if they are determined to support cloning. If the applications are not cloneable, they should be removed from the source domain controller before the clone media is created. Any application that appears in cmdlet output and is not included in the user defined inclusion list will force cloning to fail.

Once you have granted a source virtualized domain controller permissions to be cloned, the Get-ADDCCloningExcludedApplicationList cmdlet should be run a first time with no additional parameters on the source virtualized domain controller to identify all programs or services that are to be evaluated for cloning. Next, vet the returned list with your software vendors and remove any applications from the list that cannot be safely cloned. Finally, you can run the Get-ADDCCloningExcludedApplicationList cmdlet again using the GenerateXml parameter set to create the CustomDCCloneAllowList.xml file.

The Get-ADDCCloningExcludedApplicationList cmdlet needs to be run before the New-ADDCCloneConfigFile cmdlet is used because if the New-ADDCCloneConfigFile cmdlet detects an excluded application, it will not create a DCCloneConfig.xml file.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Display the excluded application list to the console

PS C:\> Get-ADDCCloningExcludedApplicationList

This command displays the excluded application list to the console. If there is already a CustomDCCloneAllowList.xml file, this cmdlet displays the delta of that list compared to the operating system, which may be nothing if the lists match.

Example 2: Generate the excluded application list and save it as a file

PS C:\> Get-ADDCCloningExcludedApplicationList -GenerateXml -Path C:\Windows\NTDS -Force

This command generates the excluded application list as a file named CustomDCCloneAllowList.xml at the specified folder path, C:\Windows\NTDS, and forces overwrite if a file by that name is found to already exist at that path location.
