Test-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccountCreation

Last Updated: 3/26/2017

SYNOPSIS

Runs the prerequisites for adding a RODC account.

SYNTAX

Test-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccountCreation -DomainControllerAccountName <String> -DomainName <String>
 -SiteName <String> [-AllowPasswordReplicationAccountName <String[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-DelegatedAdministratorAccountName <String>] [-DenyPasswordReplicationAccountName <String[]>]
 [-NoGlobalCatalog] [-InstallDns] [-ReplicationSourceDC <String>] [-Force] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Test-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccountCreation cmdlet runs the prerequisite checks which would be performed if you were to add a read-only domain controller (RODC) account in Active Directory using the Add-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccount cmdlet. It differs from using the WhatIf parameter with the Add-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccount cmdlet in that instead of summarizing the changes that would occur during the account creation process, this cmdlet actually tests whether those changes are possible given the current environment.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Test adding an RODC account to confirm it is possible

PS C:\> Test-ADDSReadOnlyDomainControllerAccountCreation -DomainControllerAccuntName RODC1 -DomainName "corp.contoso.com" -SiteName "NorthAmerica"

This command runs the prerequisites for adding an RODC account to the corp.contoso.com domain that would use the North America site as the source site for the replication source domain controller.
