Invoke-DnsServerZoneSign

Last Updated: 3/28/2017

SYNOPSIS

Signs a DNS server zone.

SYNTAX

Invoke-DnsServerZoneSign [-ZoneName] <String> [-SignWithDefault] [-DoResign] [-ComputerName <String>] [-Force]
 [-PassThru] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Invoke-DnsServerZoneSign cmdlet signs a Domain Name System (DNS) server zone.

If the zone is not already signed, use the SignWithDefault parameter, which results in the zone being signed with one Zone Signing Keys (ZSK) and one Key Signing Key (KSK) using default DNS Security (DNSSEC) settings. If the zone is already signed, use the DoResign parameter. If you use both the SignWithDefault parameter and the DoResign parameter on a signed zone, the cmdlet removes the existing zone signing keys, and re-signs the zone using default settings.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Sign a zone with default values

PS C:\> Invoke-DnsServerZoneSign -ZoneName "contoso.com" -SignWithDefault -PassThru -Verbose

This command signs the contoso zone using new KSK and ZSK keys and default DNSSEC settings.

Example 2: Re-sign a zone

PS C:\> Invoke-DnsServerZoneSign "contoso.com" -DoResign -PassThru -Verbose

This command signs the contoso.com zone again.

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.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-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.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

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

-ComputerName

Specifies a DNS server. If you do not specify this parameter, the command runs on the local system. You can specify an IP address or any value that resolves to an IP address, such as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), host name, or NETBIOS name.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Cn

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

-DoResign

Indicates that this cmdlet re-signs a DNSSEC-signed zone.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Force

Signs the DNS Server zone without prompting you for confirmation. By default, the cmdlet prompts you for confirmation before it proceeds.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
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

-SignWithDefault

Indicates that this cmdlet signs a zone with default settings. If a zone is already signed, this parameter removes the existing KSK and ZSK values for the zone, and configures DNSSEC settings to default values. A new KSK and a new ZSK are used to resign the zone.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-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.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

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

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

-ZoneName

Specifies a name of a primary zone. The cmdlet signs this zone.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 1
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

CommonParameters

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.
