Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/27/2017

SYNOPSIS

Retrieves global DNS client settings like the suffix search list.

SYNTAX

Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting cmdlet retrieves DNS client settings that are global, that are not associated with a specific interface. The settings affect the behavior of the DNS client across all of the interfaces.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get global DNS client settings

PS C:\> Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting
UseSuffixSearchList : True 
SuffixSearchList    : {corp.contoso.com, na.corp.contoso.com} 
UseDevolution       : True 
DevolutionLevel     : 0

This example gets all of the global DNS client settings.

Example 2: Get connection-specific suffixes

PS C:\> $dnsCGSetting = Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting
PS C:\> $dnsCGSetting.SuffixSearchList
corp.contoso.com 
na.corp.contoso.com

This example gets the connection-specific suffixes. The first item in the list is the primary DNS suffix, if configured.

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

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-ThrottleLimit

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.
