SYNOPSIS

Sets the properties of a replication site link bridge in Active Directory.

SYNTAX

Identity

Set-ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [-Add <Hashtable>] [-AuthType <ADAuthType>]
 [-Clear <String[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-Description <String>]
 [-Identity] <ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge> [-PassThru] [-Remove <Hashtable>] [-Replace <Hashtable>]
 [-Server <String>] [-SiteLinksIncluded <Hashtable>] [<CommonParameters>]

Instance

Set-ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [-AuthType <ADAuthType>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-Instance <ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge>] [-PassThru] [-Server <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Set-ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge cmdlet sets the properties for a replication site link bridge in Active Directory. A site link bridge connects two or more site links and enables transitivity between site links. Each site link in a bridge must have a site in common with another site link in the bridge.

EXAMPLES

PS C:\> Set-ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge -Identity "NorthAmerica-Asia" -SiteLinksIncluded @{Add='NorthAmerica-Europe2','Europe2-Asia';Remove='NorthAmerica-Europe','Europe-Asia'}

This command updates the site link bridge NorthAmerica-Asia to use Europe2 instead of Europe.

PS C:\> Get-ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge -Filter {SiteLinksIncluded -eq "NorthAmerica-Europe" -and SiteLinksIncluded -eq "Europe-Asia"} -Properties SiteLinksIncluded | % {Set-ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge $_ -SiteLinksIncluded @{Add='NorthAmerica-Europe2','Europe2-Asia';Remove='NorthAmerica-Europe','Europe-Asia'}}

This command gets all the site link bridges in the directory that includes site links NorthAmerica-Europe and Europe-Asia, and then updates the site link bridge objects to use Europe2 instead of Europe.

PARAMETERS

-Add

Specifies values to add to an object property. Use this parameter to add one or more values to a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) display name. You can specify multiple values to a property by specifying a comma-separated list of values and more than one property by separating them using a semicolon. The format for this parameter is:

-Add @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...; Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...; AttributeNLDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace, and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

  • Remove
  • Add
  • Replace
  • Clear
Type: Hashtable
Parameter Sets: Identity
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-AuthType

Specifies the authentication method to use. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Negotiate or 0
  • Basic or 1

The default authentication method is Negotiate.

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection is required for the Basic authentication method.

Type: ADAuthType
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 
Accepted values: Negotiate, Basic

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Clear

Specifies an array of object properties that will be cleared in the directory. Use this parameter to clear one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can modify more than one property by specifying a comma-separated list. The format for this parameter is:

-Clear Attribute1LDAPDisplayName, Attribute2LDAPDisplayName

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace, and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

  • Remove
  • Add
  • Replace
  • Clear
Type: String[]
Parameter Sets: Identity
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Credential

Specifies the user account credentials to use to perform this task. The default credentials are the credentials of the currently logged on user unless the cmdlet is run from an Active Directory PowerShell provider drive. If the cmdlet is run from such a provider drive, the account associated with the drive is the default.

To specify this parameter, you can type a user name, such as User1 or Domain01\User01 or you can specify a PSCredential object. If you specify a user name for this parameter, the cmdlet prompts for a password.

You can also create a PSCredential object by using a script or by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. You can then set the Credential parameter to the PSCredential object.

If the acting credentials do not have directory-level permission to perform the task, Active Directory PowerShell returns a terminating error.

Type: PSCredential
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Description

Specifies a description of the object. This parameter sets the value of the Description property for the object. The LDAP Display Name (ldapDisplayName) for this property is description.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: Identity
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Identity

Specifies an Active Directory object by providing one of the following property values. The identifier in parentheses is the LDAP display name for the attribute. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • A distinguished name
  • A GUID (objectGUID)

The cmdlet searches the default naming context or partition to find the object. If two or more objects are found, the cmdlet returns a non-terminating error.

This parameter can also get this object through the pipeline or you can set this parameter to an object instance.

Type: ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge
Parameter Sets: Identity
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Instance

Specifies an instance of a site link bridge object to use as a template for a new site link bridge object.

You can use an instance of an existing site link bridge object as a template or you can construct a new site link bridge object by using the Windows PowerShell command line or by using a script.

Method 1: Use an existing site link bridge object as a template for a new object. To retrieve an instance of an existing site link bridge object, use a cmdlet such as Get-ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge. Then provide this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge cmdlet to create a new site link bridge object. You can override property values of the new object by setting the appropriate parameters.

Method 2: Create a new ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge and set the property values by using the Windows PowerShell command line interface. Then pass this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge cmdlet to create the new Active Directory object.

Note: Specified attributes are not validated, so attempting to set attributes that do not exist or cannot be set will raise an error.

Type: ADReplicationSiteLinkBridge
Parameter Sets: Instance
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Remove

Specifies that the cmdlet remove values of an object property. Use this parameter to remove one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To remove an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can remove more than one property by specifying a semicolon-separated list. The format for this parameter is:

-Remove @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value[]; Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value[]}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace, and Clear parameters together, the parameters will be applied in the following sequence:

  • Remove
  • Add
  • Replace
  • Clear
Type: Hashtable
Parameter Sets: Identity

To modify an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can modify more than one property by specifying a comma-separated list. The format for this parameter is:

-Replace @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value[], Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value[]}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace, and Clear parameters together, the parameters will be applied in the following sequence:

  • Remove
  • Add

Domain name values:

  • Fully qualified domain name
  • NetBIOS name

Directory server values:

  • Fully qualified directory server name
  • NetBIOS name
  • Fully qualified directory server name and port

The default value for this parameter is determined by one of the following methods in the order that they are listed:
